NBC apologizes for tweet endorsing Oprah Winfrey for president

Ivanka Trump praised Oprah Winfrey one day after the media mogul delivered a rousing speech at the Golden Globes

Oprah Winfrey's powerful speech about female and black activism won the most attention, sparking calls by fans on social media for her to run for U.S. President in 2020. An emotional commentary on sexual harassment. Some people cheered actresses for turning the red carpet into more than a parade of dresses while others recoiled.

Almost every female attendee wore a black dress in support of the #MeToo movement against abuse while both sexes also sported "Time's Up" badges to show backing for an initiative against workplace harassment.

However, actress Blanca Blanco chose to wear red and now, she's explained why.

Picking the right moment as the applause died down, she added with flair, "Their time is up", bringing the crowd to a new ovation. They are domestic workers and farmworkers.

All through the ceremony, Hollywood's ladies didn't mince their words when it came to addressing the industry's inherent sexism. Natalie Portman threw shade at the all-male directing nominees - while presenting that award - and then Geena Davis did the same for the actors. "But that would be something she would have to determine and lay out if she made a decision to run". As long as injustices continue to be enacted against women around the world, the #MeToo movement will stay firm and relevant - even beyond the Golden Globes. That was 1984 (for Yentl), that was 34 years ago.

Oprah Responds To Rumours She's Planning To Run For President

This is not the first time Winfrey has been mentioned in conjunction with a possible presidential ticket.

Social media has been flooded with calls for Oprah Winfrey to run for U.S. president, after the talk show host delivered an inspiring speech at the Golden Globes calling for an end to sexual misconduct in the media industry and beyond. Winfrey delivered a powerful and inspiring speech addressing sexual harassment in which she denounced sexism and racism.

"I also know, after years of watching the Oprah show, you always have the right to change your mind", she said. The men who tried to destroy her were never persecuted.

Asked about a potential Winfrey candidacy in 2020, a White House spokesman said, "We welcome the challenge, whether it be Oprah Winfrey or anybody else". "Harvey Weinstein isn't here tonight because, well, I heard rumours that he's insane and hard to work with. Each of us in this room are celebrated because of the stories that we tell, and this year we became the story", Winfrey said.

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. In the television category, Big Little Lies, The Handmaid's Tale and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel were the big winners.
