Justin Timberlake was the scheduled presenter and self described “arm candy” of the 21 young women who were chosen as the 2018 class of THR's highly competitive Women in Entertainment Mentorship Program. He presented each recipient with a $10,000 scholarship for university and stated how important it is for men to stand up for women’s rights.

“It’s our privilege, because at the end of the day, if you can be lucky enough to be raised by a strong woman and convince a strong woman to marry you, you will realize that we are nothing without the strength of women," he said.

Jennifer Lawrence was honored with the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award, presented by Lansing herself. Sarah Silverman opened the ceremony and Angelina Jolie gave the key note speech.


THR's highly competitive Women in Entertainment Mentorship Program is in partnership with the Big Brother Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles and the Entertainment Industry Foundation.
