In recent years during various award shows, the more left-leaning Hollywood stars make it a point to take a political stance. At the 24th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG), the trend continued.

SAG on Trumps

It started last year during the 2017 Golden Globes when legendary actress Meryl Streep accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award for her contribution to the film community. Over the course of her acceptance speech, Streep ripped into the election of Donald Trump, while refusing to even use the president's name. The speech got under Trump's skin to the point that he called Streep out during a tweet the following morning.

In the months that followed, actors, writers, directors, and more took the opportunity to take a jab at the current administration, which reached a peak during the recent speech by Oprah Winfrey at the 2018 Golden Globes. Oprah received such high praise that many even speculated whether or not she would make a run for president in 2020. With the opposition to Trump growing on a daily basis, the 2018 SAG Awards got underway on January 21 and the president and first lady were targets.

Kicking off the 24th Annual SAG Awards on Sunday night was host Kristen Bell, the first to ever host the show in its history.

"You know, there's never been a host for this award show. Yes, first time, first lady," Bell said. "I never thought that I would grow up to be the first lady but you know what? I kinda like it," she went on to say.

"I think my first initiate as first lady will be cyber-bullying," Kristin Bell said, before adding, "I have yet to see any progress made on that problem." Bell's remarks are a direct shot at Melania Trump who came under fire for wanting to end cyber-bullying as first lady, despite being married to Donald Trump who is known for his reckless behavior on Twitter.

Shameless Trump

Winning the award for best for Male Actor in a Comedy Series was William H. Macy for his role as Frank Gallagher in the hit show "Shameless." In accepting his award, Macy appeared to throw shade at Donald Trump for not being able to recognize truth. "It's our job to find the truth," Macy said of his job as an actor.

"Especially in this day and age when so many people can't recognize the truth or don't think it's important," Macy added. As has been the case in previous award shows, the president wasn't mentioned by name in a form of silent protect by those in Hollywood, though their words were loud in clear in opposition to the current administration.
