I’m obsessed with the filmmaking process.” Kristen said during her speech. “I became obsessed with the search for something real, in tiny precise moments or splattered messy ones, and the precious and insane ways that we create those moments that make us feel less alone or at least valid. … Without that, we wouldn’t make art.” Watch the rest of her speech below!

Also in attendance at the event were Vanessa Hudgens, Brittany Snow, and Lucy Hale.

Besides Kristen and Anna, other honorees included Lupita Nyong’o, Amy Adams, Aja Naomi King, Felicity Jones, Kathy Bates, and Helen Mirren.
