Oprah uses Golden Globes acceptance speech to highlight #MeToo

Trump on Oprah: She won't run in 2020 but I'd win anyway

Oprah's speech prompted applause, cheers, and a standing ovation from those inside The Beverly Hilton hotel and ignited calls for her presidential candidacy from her adoring celebrity peers on social media.

Of course, Winfrey had everyone on their feet as she concluded her speech by celebrating the men and women today who are creating the change that we need in the world, and sending a message to the young girls who were watching. "She. Is. Running", said John Podhoretz, editor of Commentary magazine.

She recounted the story of "sitting on the linoleum floor of my mother's house in Milwaukee" in 1964 watching Sidney Poitier win the Oscar for best actor. During her remarks, Oprah hit hard on sexual harassment and assault. "I just hope that Recy Taylor died knowing that her truth, like the truth of so many other women who were tormented in those years and even now tormented, goes marching on".

The tweet came after host Seth Meyers made a joke in his monologue about a run by Winfrey.

Oprah Winfrey brought the audience to its feet at Sunday night's Golden Globes. And make no mistake: Oprah is absolutely, 100% aware of that fact.

"I learnt everything from how to make the best English muffin to how it is like to be the only woman as a board member at a huge company".

Her acceptance speech stirred the room of Hollywood's elite actors, actresses, directors, and producers.

Winfrey had generally stayed away from overt politics until the 2008 election when she campaigned vigorously for Obama in an endorsement credited with helping him secure the Democratic Party's nomination.

'I want all the girls watching to know: A new day is on the horizon. But she added, according to a transcript released by her office, that "there's an argument for choosing someone outside the circle". "It's that good. When she hugs you, it's the greatest thing ever".

"I think when she spoke she empowered everybody that was afraid to use their voice", said Amy Mulcahy.

However, the Los Angeles Times quoted Stedman Graham, Winfrey's longtime partner, as saying on Sunday that "It's up to the people".

But two sources close to the billionaire told CNN Money she is "actively thinking" about it.

"Oprah. I love Oprah".

"Well I think that people are aware, now, of a power imbalance". Oprah did the same, vowing that things will get better in the future.

Tatna, who is Indian, told Access Hollywood on the red carpet that she wore the color red because it is against her culture to wear black, unless she is a widow in mourning.
