"She lived, as we all have lived, too many years in a culture broken by brutally powerful men", Winfrey said.

As for what humbles her, the media mogul referred to her award before explaining that even she was surprised to receive the coveted honor.

Like numerous women in attendance for the Golden Globes, Oprah Winfrey was dressed in a black gown to show support for the Time's Up campaign which condemns sexual misconduct. "We now know that this partisan fight has becomes a fierce battle for the soul of America", Steyer said.

Oprah concluded with one last piece of advice for the future generation of Hollywood.

"I think lessons we all learned from watching Hillary's run, and how her ambition was unfavorably and unfairly viewed, coupled with Oprah's existing popularity, could give Oprah a strong start", Palmieri said. That's why it feels so authentic, it's 'cause it actually is!

Celebrity presidents cannot be made the norm

Seth Meyers, the host for the 75th Golden Globe Awards, stayed relevant during his monologue for the special event by tackling the one of the biggest issues in Hollywood today - sexual misconduct. "She would absolutely do it".

Thanking the HFPA while accepting her award for Best Actress in a Drama, Frances McDormand quipped, "Let's face it, they managed to elect a female president. I tried many, many, many times to explain what a moment like that means to a little girl, a kid watching from the cheap seats as my mom came through the door bone exhausted from cleaning other people's houses". While Hillary Clinton had trouble getting key demographics such as white women to vote for her in 2016, Jones doesn't think that gaining broad support would be a problem for Winfrey since she has longstanding fans across many demographics. Indeed, after she exited the stage, actress Natalie Portman arrived to present the best director prize and said: "Here are the all-male nominees". "They tried to get a woman to host this show, they really did", he said. "Jokes about how he was unqualified to be president".

While Tatna didn't wear the dark hue, she did wear a Time's Up pin to raise awareness of sexual assault and to show her support. "She's popular, she's brilliant, she's a wonderful woman".

"I want to say that I value the press more than ever before". "But that would be something she would have to determine and lay out if she made a decision to run".

She expressed gratitude for Taylor and all the women who were silenced when they spoke their truth to powerful men, the women who worked in factories, farms, as domestic workers and in academia, whose names will never be known.
