24 Folks Who Had Their Lives Changed, Skin Cleared, and Bills Paid by Oprah's Globes Speech
When Oprah Winfrey tells you that "a new day is on the horizon," believe her! The icon's moving Cecil B. DeMille Award acceptance speech explored how far she (and women as a whole) has come and how far our society has left to go. Never one to leave a room of people uninspired, Oprah offered a killer closing statement to her monologue about the struggle of black women, abusive men in power, and the Time's Up movement:
"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."
Not only did the speech earn several standing ovations and celebrity tears throughout, but Oprah also ignited a fire of motivation and inspiration in Golden Globes viewers, who took to Twitter to rave about the stirring sermon. Based on these passionate responses to her speech (which even moved people to imagine Oprah as our next president), you'll want to listen to it all over again!
