“I think it’s pretty generous you even agreed to let a dude in the building, all things considered, at this moment in time,” Lena said on stage while honoring J.J.. “In a year in which so many men have been called out for being f–kboys at best and despicable predators at worst, it is such an honor to support and recognize the man who has used his power and prestige to support and advocate for women in the entertainment industry.”
