Ellen DeGeneres was honored at the Golden Globes with the Carol Burnett Award, acknowledging her impact and her talent over the years. Saturday Night Live star Kate McKinnon introduced the comedian and talk show host, sharing her own experiences with seeing Ellen onscreen as a young lesbian.
"She risked her entire life & her entire career in order to tell the truth and she suffered greatly for it. Of course, attitudes change, but only because brave people like Ellen jump into the fire ... Thank you, Ellen, for giving me a shot at a good life."
