Kristen Bell From The Good Place Gets ‘SeeHer’ Award At 2020 CCA
We love how Ted Danson introduces Kristen Bell to the audience just before handing her the award. Bell has lent her voice more than just her Frozen 2 character Princess Anna. She is a voice for people who feel they do not have a voice. Last year, Bell became a global advocate for the UN Women’s Peace and Humanitarian Fund. Moreover, she is also a co-founder of the social enterprise “This Bar Saves Lives”, where a portion of the purchase goes to needy children across the globe. Finally, she is a supporter of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, Immigrant Families Together and Invisible Children. Danson was not wrong, telling how thrilling it was to present the award to The Good Place star.
Kristen Bell Gets The ‘See Her’ Award At 2020 Critics Choice
Kristen Bell came to the awards where she took the opportunity to describe what it means to be a woman today. The See Her Award is for women who persevere despite hardships and aim to change the stereotype by displaying a true woman through their actions. Previous winners include Viola Davis, Gal Gadot and Claire Foy.
To be a woman is to give yourself the permission to be the things that you already are, Bell tells the audience of this year’s Critics’ Choice Awards. She explains that what she believes is not generally easy to do because women are conditioned to fit inside “pretty little boxes”. Since their young age women are always conditioned what to do and what not to do in order to “fit” them inside a male-dominated society. Hence, to us, it is incredible how pragmatic her response is and not generic.
Ted Danson and Bell, both, star in “The Good Place”. He invited her on to the stage by telling the audience that she “embodies characters who have a strong moral core, compassion, independence…”
Kristen Bell later posted a photograph of her with Danson on Instagram. “I have no words for how much I adore this man,” she wrote in her caption.
