In this handout photo provided by NBCUniversal, Oprah Winfrey accepts the 2018 Cecil B. DeMille Award speaks onstage during the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 7, 2018 in Beverly Hills, California.
The Golden Globes kicked off with a monologue from host Seth Meyers, who immediately chose to talk about the disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.
On the other hand, I could argue that she should be disqualified simply on the basis of her promotion of "The Secret", a multimedia juggernaut that claimed that the entire universe and every moment of human experience are governed by "the law of attraction". It gave a vision on how to move forward.
The drumbeat for a potential Winfrey presidential run began nearly as soon as the Golden Globes kicked off, as host Seth Meyers jokingly told Winfrey not to run. In response, Oprah's longtime partner Stedman Graham said, "It's up to the people".
Bring it on, the White House said Monday, welcoming a would-be battle against Oprah Winfrey for the presidency in 2020. Trump has famously derided stories about him and entire news organizations as "fake news". "And it's here with every woman who chooses to say, "me, too', and every man who chooses to listen". "Speaking your truth is the most powerful tool that we all have".
Trump told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos in 2015, shortly after announcing his presidential bid, that a 2016 ticket of Trump for president and Winfrey for vice president would be a lock for the White House. "I like Oprah and I also like Donald Trump, but as TV personalities not as the President of the United States of America".
This is not the first time this suggestion has been made, nor is Oprah the first celebrity who has inspired that kind of talk (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has said he's "seriously considering" running). "I can't get them to actually respond because a skilled politician knows how to give the answer they want". "Their time is up!" she shouted to a standing ovation. "I want to express gratitude to all the women who have endured years of abuse and assault because they, like my mother, had children to feed and bills to pay and dreams to pursue", she said during her acceptance speech. She spoke about the feelings she had as a young girl watching Sidney Poitier win the best-actor Oscar in 1964 and likened the pride she felt watching Poitier, the first black man to win that trophy, to the impact she hoped she could have on young women today. "And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say "Me too" again".
Winfrey's speech was the most Tweeted moment of the Golden Globes.
It also didn't take long for social media to rally behind Oprah for the job, with the hashtags #oprah2020 and #OprahSpeech trending on Twitter. "I don't think she had any intention [of declaring]".
