Oprah Responds To Rumours She's Planning To Run For President
Ms Winfrey had barely heralded a "new day" following a sexual harassment watershed, before calls snowballed for one of America's most famous women, a self-made tycoon born into poverty, to run for the highest office in the free world. The phrase also referenced the "Time's Up" initiative led by women in Hollywood and others to combat sexual misconduct; that was at the center of the message actresses sent by wearing mainly black at the Globes on Sunday night. They're part of the word of tech and politics and business.
But notably, while the entire awards show focused on the theme of female empowerment, no women were nominated for Best Director, a hypocrisy actress Natalie Portman did not shy away from calling out. Here is a summary of the awards given out and the great moments shared.
Bill O'Reilly, the former Fox News anchor forced out in disgrace by sexual harassment allegations and an early champion of Trump, hailed Winfrey as a formidable ticket.
Raised in Nashville, Milwaukee and MS, she was raped as a 14-year-old by an uncle and became pregnant, until she miscarried the baby. We are all overcoming. In their speeches, James Franco, Ewan McGregor, Guillermo del Toro, Aziz Ansari and Sam Rockwell were among the winners who avoided the movement that otherwise dominated the evening.
Afterward, she said: "Margaret Atwood this is for you and all the women who came before you and after you, who were courageous enough to speak out against intolerance and injustice, and to fight for equality and freedom in this world".
-Series, Drama - "The Handmaid's Tale".
Oprah Winfrey's best friend, Gayle King, is downplaying any suggestion that Winfrey might run for president. "I don't think she had any intention (of declaring). I think people have to stop being bullies".
"She is crackerjack on the money on women's issues and I call her the ambassador of empathy".
"I'm proud that our industry, faced with uncomfortable truths, has vowed to change the way we do business".
Social media lit up with the prospect of Winfrey as a presidential candidate, following her speech at the Golden Globes Sunday.
"I can only speak for myself but not only I wasn't invited to the #GoldenGlobes: nobody asked my opinion about #TIMESUP", she wrote, adding that she supports the anti-harassment campaign, "even though I was excluded from it". May we also please protect and employ them. "I know it's hard but #TIMESUP for your dad too". The men who tried to destroy her were never persecuted. I want to say that I value the press more than ever before as we try to navigate these complicated times, which brings me to this: What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have.
Seacrest then interrupted Williams to say it was "exciting" to see Burke at the Globes.
It may well be Blanca Blanco wore the red dress to stand out and it may well have been a publicity stunt in bad taste but the fact is, for the global media to devote their time to picking apart her choice of dress, irrespective of what everybody else was wearing, there is still a huge problem and reinforces the need for such movements.
