There’s a first for everything, and the first for the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards is about to happen.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the Guild announced that their 24th annual awards show would have its first-ever host, tapping Kristen Bell for the job that also “marks the first time the telecast will air with a live emcee since its inaugural program in 1995.”
To commemorate the occasion, EW says Bell took to social media to share the news — and to poke some fun at herself in the process.
“I’ve been asked to host the SAG Awards this year, which means, to all my friends who’ve been nominated, I get to choose who wins!” she said in the video, according to EW. When someone off-camera tells that’s not the case, she responded, “That’s not how it works? Then what am I doing? Like, Anne Hathaway and James Franco did? I’m doing that? Why, did I lose a bet?”
Looks like Bell is already going to make a great host with her quick supply of jokes! Get ready to catch her in action when the SAG Awards are live at 8:00 p.m. ET on TNT and TBS.
