She wrote: "Just saw @Oprah's empowering and inspiring speech at last night's #GoldenGlobes". Yet while these firsts are all deserving of celebration, you can't really celebrate without asking yourself why these firsts took this long to happen.
Oprah Winfrey holds the 2018 Golden Globe Cecil B. DeMille Award in the press room during the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. Becoming the first black woman to accept the Cecil B. De Mille lifetime achievement award, her speech wove together gender, poverty and race. "It's been so many.' And I then thought, I hope she doesn't ask me because I think it's been five, and so I didn't understand it, and they explained that it's about overall entertainment".
Adjusted returns for the 2018 Golden Globe Awards have the telecast down a little from the previous year. Before she announced the victor for Best Motion Picture, the legendary Barbara Streisand took a moment to chide the Golden Globes for ignoring female directors.
A young African American woman argued that Winfrey is "popular, everybody loves her, every housewife in America will vote for her".
Trump himself has been accused of being a serial sexual predator by more than a dozen women.
After college, she went into journalism before reigning for 25 years as queen of the United States talk show, ushering in an era of confessional television before becoming the first black woman to own a television network. The activists invited to attended included Tarana Burke, the founder of the #MeToo movement, Ai-jen Poo, the director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance and Saru Jayaram, a workplace justice advocate. "They are working in factories, and they work in restaurants, and they're in academia and engineering and medicine and science". They're part of the world of tech and politics and business. "They're our athletes in the Olympics and they're our soldiers in the military", Oprah said. While it can't be denied that Oprah's speech came from the heart, perhaps there is possibility for larger plans in 2020.
CNN reported on Monday that Oprah Winfrey is "actively thinking" about running for president, citing two close friends who were interviewed on the condition of anonymity.
Actress, movie and television producer, and chief executive of her OWN cable channel, Winfrey (63) was celebrated as a role-model for women and a person who has promoted strong female characters. "She would absolutely do it".
Meanwhile, Oprah's speech focused on the history of abuse and assault reigned by men and expressed gratitude to all the women who have endured those hardships.
