Kristen Bell hosted the 24th annual Screen Actors Guild awards ceremony on Sunday evening; it's the only televised awards show that exclusively honors performers. Bell is the first-ever host for the show, which is filled with effusive praise and a genial atmosphere. Bell began things with a lightly comic introduction, which you can watch below.

Life Achievement Award: Morgan Freeman
In her introductory comments, Rita Moreno recalled that Morgan Freeman presented her with the Life Achievement Award five years ago and clearly she was delighted to present him with the same honor, recounting their past shared history together on the PBS show Sesame Street. Freeman, as might be expected, was quite gracious in his speech.
