Everything Oprah Winfrey Has Said About Not Running for President

Oprah Winfrey said it’s time to take a stand against sexual abuse

"I don't think she had any intention [of declaring]".

She taught and touched me during every formative, terrifying period of my life. She also pledged, on behalf of the HFPA, two $1 million grants to non-profit organizations that support journalism.

"I keep my politics private but it was really great to be in this room tonight and to be part of the tectonic shift in our industry's power structure", said McDormand, accepting her acting award.

Speculation that the speech could mark the start of a bid for the 2020 presidency went into overdrive when friends suggested she was considering a campaign. These moments weren't all the greats but stuck out to me.

"What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have", Winfrey said. "I'm especially proud and inspired by all the woman who felt strong enough and empowered enough to speak up and share their personal stories".

"You wrote a role for a black man that could only be played by a black man", Brown said in his speech, thanking This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman.

"This year, we became the story".

In her acceptance speech, Oprah addressed the issues of sex and race through her own experiences as a child and a woman in the entertainment industry.

"They're the women whose names we'll never know". Taylor died at the end of December at 97.

I found the shimmering assemblage of a black-on-black red carpet at the Golden Globes on Sunday visual representation that women - from Hollywood A-listers to domestic workers - will no longer stand for the lecherous behavior of the Harvey Weinsteins, Matt Lauers, Russell Simmons, and even Sam Haskells of the world, but it was Oprah Winfrey who flawlessly nailed the message of the Time's Up movement.

Even so, for Democrats in early voting states, and perhaps for a public that largely disapproves of President Donald Trump's job performance, the notion of a popular media figure as a presidential candidate is not as unusual as it once seemed, given the NY real estate mogul and reality TV star now in the White House. A reporter asked Stedman Graham, Oprah's partner, whether she'd run.

"That said, given the choice between Oprah and our current president, I'm on the bus with Oprah travelling the country encouraging people to sign up and vote", he said. "She would absolutely do it".

We - I - want her to lift us up and save our souls and restore a sense of dignity and heart that seems altogether missing from our nation's capital, our collective body's nerve center. "We support gender equity and equal pay and we hope that E! follows that lead with Catt as well", she said. I think she deserves better than what Washington's serving these days, and I think her gifts would be squandered and squashed in politics.

Everything about her speech was how she was inspired by others, which is insane to think about. "We can all be better", he said.

Oh, and I'm doing it with you. Is it possible for someone to win an Emmy for a speech they gave at the Golden Globes?

"A new day is on the horizon!" promised Winfrey, who noted she was the first black woman to be given the honour.

It's on us to coax it into being. We lived in the blank white spaces at the edges of print.

After college, she went into journalism before reigning for 25 years as queen of the USA talk show, ushering in an era of confessional television before becoming the first black woman to own a television network. "We are the stories in print and we are writing the stories ourselves".

It's on us to revive this nation's heart. Maybe Oprah can help us through it.

Meyers' approach - equally determined not to make the show about him and to not hold back on provocative humor - offered, to invoke another "Late Night" segment, a closer look at the evolving career of a comedian being tested on the job.
