  • Hollywood Celebs Paint Red Carpet Black at Golden Globes

Like numerous women in attendance for the Golden Globes, Oprah Winfrey was dressed in a black gown to show support for the Time's Up campaign which condemns sexual misconduct.

Winfrey's rousing speech at Sunday's Golden Globes Awards ceremony ignited speculation that the billionaire talk show queen is harboring Oval Office ambitions.

On Monday, Winfrey's longtime partner, Stedman Graham, told the Los Angeles Times that "it's up to the people" whether she will be president, adding, "She would absolutely do it".

Turning to Winfrey, Meyers continued: "So if that's true, I just want to say: Oprah, you will never be president!"

"I'm proud that our industry, faced with uncomfortable truths, has vowed to change the way we do business". Over the course of a few months, hundreds of courageous women came forward and told their stories of sexual misconduct in the workplace.

On Twitter, viewers who watched E!'s red carpet coverage noted that Seacrest seemed to be asking only women about Time's Up and sexual harassment, while sticking to more comfortable topics like acting and the excitement of awards shows with the men he interviewed.

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. "Their time is up!"

"Look, I disagree very much on her policies", the spokeswoman said.

Trump himself has been accused of being a serial sexual predator by more than a dozen women. May we also please protect and employ them. As it progressed, we were able to see just how far sexual harassment has extended.

Nicole Kidman, who won Best Actress in a Miniseries or TV Movie for her role as an abuse survivor in HBO's Big Little Lies, said: "I do believe, and I hope, we can elicit change through the stories we tell and the way we tell them". "Let's keep the conversation alive". Winfrey also made note of women and their role amidst the spectre of sexual harassment from male figures of power, proudly proclaiming about these power-exploiting men "their time is up".

Winfrey brought the typically rowdy crowd to silence and tears with her speech. It was moving, and full of important issues that are more relevant than ever to discuss.

She spoke of seeing Sidney Poitier win an Academy Award when she was a girl, and weaved it into the #MeToo movement. So it was striking that Donald Trump was mostly a nonentity - unlike during last year's Globes, when, on the eve of his inauguration, the president-elect loomed large. Recy Taylor died ten days ago, just shy of her 98th birthday.

Oprah Winfrey is arguably the most powerful woman out here today. If so, it's been a long while.

Messing referenced the recent departure from E! of host Catt Sadler, who has said she was making about half the pay of her male counterpart, Jason Kennedy. The late night host called out Weinstein, Spacey, and director Woody Allen for their behavior towards women in the film and TV industry.

With seven words Natalie Portman punched the patriarchy right in the stones. Guillermo del Toro's Cold War-era fantasy "The Shape of Water" won for its score and del Toro's directing.

Sunday night's telecast of the awards exemplified everything great and awkward about the industry's highly publicized efforts to confront the surge of s*xual harassment scandal and embrace the age of #MeToo.

"There's a feeling among many in the country that prior political experience is actually a deficit", said Cindy Rosenthal, political science professor at the University of Oklahoma.

BBC broke down Oprah's speech into components of rhetoric: "Personal touch, Statement of objective, Compelling anecdote, Call to action".
