Recy Taylor, who was the woman Oprah mentioned — Golden Globes

Oprah Winfrey summed up the evening's mood, saying "a new day is on the horizon" when she accepted the Cecil B DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award on Sunday night. You do not have what it takes. You do not have what it takes. And the "Oprah for president?" possibility was a top story on morning TV. You are too mean and unrelatable.

Winfrey burst into laughter.

Guillermo del Toro, who won best director at the Golden Globes, had to hush the orchestra after they began playing shortly after he started his acceptance speech.

She brought the crowd at the Beverly Hilton to its feet.

"It is the insatiable dedication to uncovering the absolute truth that keeps us from turning a blind eye to corruption and to injustice, to tyrants and victims and secrets and lies", she said.

Winfrey ended her speech Sunday with a rallying cry for girls on the topic of the "Me Too" movement, which was the focus of Hollywood's first awards show since allegations of sexual misconduct swept the entertainment industry and then expanded into almost every other industry. "I got goose bumps".

Six months later, Winfrey tweeted to her 41 million followers a link to a New York Post editorial that trumpeted her as the Democrats' best hope of beating Trump in 2020. "Hi, Oprah", the awestruck Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star Rachel Brosnahan said when she arrive on stage to accept her award. "I wanted this to be a meaningful moment". "Okaay!" she reportedly responded. "I want her to run for president", Streep said after the show.

Even Fox News joined in to needle NBC over the tweet.

Tagging the author, she wrote, "Thanks for your VOTE of confidence!" They talked about the importance of standards for the representation of women of color particularly - and they did it using the word "intersectionality".

Winfrey laughed while the studio audience applauded.

The incident left Ms Taylor "afraid of living", she told NPR in 2011.

"It's clear that you don't need government experience to be elected president of the United States, right?"

"That's what I thought", Winfrey said.

Although one of the men confessed, an all-white grand jury never indicted the men and shortly after Recy's story fell to the wayside. "It was clearly a joke", King said on CBS. (Also, let's not forget the speculation about "The Rock 2020"). She notably headlined an Iowa rally for then-Sen.

Trump's job approval rating sat at just 32 percent in December, according to an Associated Press-NORC poll. It's possible Oprah could prove herself worthy of the attention being put on the idea of her running for president. "I don't think she had any intention (of declaring)". But she certainly hasn't done it yet, and we should all be extremely sceptical unless and until she shows us why, beyond just being rich and famous, she'd actually make a good president. When he ran for president in 2008, she publicly endorsed him.

She mentioned her 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". They look to the recent past and see a bunch of serious, experienced public servants with a deep understanding of policy who would have made fine presidents, but who lost in part because they failed to light up the TV screen: Dukakis, Gore, Kerry, Hillary Clinton.

But would she challenge Trump?

That's not to say Winfrey can't claim any significant political influence.

He beat contender Timothee Chalamet, who was a critical favourite for his portrayal of a young man in the midst of a sexual awakening in Call Me By Your Name.

Winfrey's speech - which did, at times, sound nearly campaign-like - provided the ceremony's emotional pivot point.

Asked whether she'd win in a race against Trump, she said she didn't know, but that doesn't matter. "And if it got so bad, I would never want to rule it out totally".
