'Me Too' Movement, Time's Up Takes Center Stage at Golden Globes

'Me Too' Movement, Time's Up Takes Center Stage at Golden Globes

The host of the Golden Globes, late-night comedian Seth Meyers, jokingly urged Winfrey to run in his opening monologue, noting that President Donald Trump had reportedly chose to make his bid for the office after he was the butt of Meyers' jokes at the White House Correspondents Dinner in 2011. But, the drumbeat for her to make a presidential run was well underway. We break down what's behind the polar temperatures that gripped the east coast over the weekend and the upcoming warm-up. Backstage, a reporter asked Stedman Graham, Oprah's partner, whether she'd run.

She said that the Time's Up initiative wasn't just launched to help privileged women in Hollywood gain access to better pay, opportunities and freedom from sexual harassment but to help women in all industries gain protections against abuse and oppression.

President Donald Trump says he would beat Oprah Winfrey in a presidential contest but doesn't think she will run.

Accepting the award for best supporting actress for I, Tonya, Janney paid tribute to disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding, thanking her for "sharing her story".

"We were fighting a long time for the freedom to wear what we want to and that it is also OK, to dress up a little more sexy".

Following the inspirational speech, "Oprah 2020" started trending on Twitter, as people wondered (and hoped) the star had plans on running for presidency in the next United States election.

MEHER TATNA who was born in Mubai India told E! that she made the decision to wear red in respect to her family and culture.

Just three months ago, Oprah squashed any prospect of running for president in 2020, telling longtime friend Gayle King, "There will be no running for office of any kind for me".

"Oprah for president" seemed to be a theme during last night's show, beginning with the event's host, former Saturday Night Live star Seth Meyers. "You know that was 1984 ― that was 34 years ago", she said.

So I want all the girls watching here now to know that a new day is on the horizon.

She also expressed her gratitude to the press, which she said "is under siege these days" and which she says she values more than ever. "I didn't even think about it in terms of business or viewership". Her appeal extended well beyond her celebrity, some said, citing her compassion, kindness and devotion to helping others as a badly needed change after Trump.

As her longtime partner Stedman Graham watched from the audience, she told the story of a black woman from Alabama named Recy Taylor, who died at the age of 97 on December 28, 2017, and her fight for justice after her rape by six white men in 1944. The same can't be said for the men of the evening, who generally avoided the conversation as if Hollywood wasn't in the midst of a hugely-publicized reckoning with powerful, abusive men.
