In January 2018, the 75th Golden Globe Awards honored “the very best in television and film.” The three-hour ceremony featured late night talk show host Seth Meyers as the host but one of the most memorable moments (if not the most memorable) was the speech delivered by Oprah Winfrey. When Winfrey accepted the Cecil B. de Mille Award, she said at the end of her acceptance speech: “I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon! 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.”
After the speech, people assumed Winfrey was considering a 2020 run for President of the United States. Winfrey says her speech had nothing to do with the presidential race. She tells a CBS 60 Minutes producer, “Are you kiddin’ me? I was just trying’ to give a good speech.” 60 Minutes airs Sundays at 7pm on CBS.
