Oprah Winfrey’s 2018 Golden Globes Speech
Let’s be clear.
Whatever Oprah says GOES, and she had a LOT to say during Sunday’s Golden Globes. The media maven brought the house down while becoming the first black woman awarded the Cecil B. DeMille Award.
In her speech, Oprah imagined a world free of the #MeToo sexual misconduct movement and praised the press for “not turning a blind eye to tyrants.”
“I want to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. We know the press is under siege these days. We also know it’s the insatiable dedication to uncovering the absolute truth that keeps us from turning a blind eye to corruption and to injustice. To—to tyrants and victims, and secrets and lies. 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. And I’m especially proud and inspired by all the women who have felt strong enough and empowered enough to speak up and share their personal stories. Each of us in this room are celebrated because of the stories that we tell, and this year we became the story.”
“I’ve interviewed and portrayed people who’ve withstood some of the ugliest things life can throw at you, but the one quality all of them seem to share is an ability to maintain hope for a brighter morning, even during our darkest nights. So 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.”
Oprah’s soul-stirring speech has people urging her to pursue the Presidency in 2020.
