Streep on Oprah presidential bid: 'She doesn't have a choice'

09 January, 2018, 00:33 | Author: Pamela Mathis

Oprah Winfrey is "actively thinking" about running for president, according to a new report.

"The tweet was sent out by a third party agency for NBC Entertainment in real time during the live broadcast", said a spokesperson in a statement on Monday.

Oprah Winfrey had plenty of wisdom to dispense when she came backstage Sunday night at the Golden Globes after receiving the Cecil B. DeMille award for life achievement from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Meyers also jokingly encouraged Oprah Winfrey to run for president against Donald Trump.

Later, electrified by her speech onstage at an unusually politicised Golden Globes, celebrities in the audience and fans watching from home were so ready to vote Oprah into the White House that a hashtag quickly gained momentum: #Oprah2020.

She pitched her campaign-to-be to the constituency that may matter most in 2020 but didn't in 2016.

In the true fashion of a politician considering a run, she's played coy on the subject in the past (using the word "Never!" multiple times), but Winfrey's impassioned remarks on the #MeToo movement and forward-looking tone didn't do much to put rest to the rumors that she could put her hat in the 2020 ring. "I want all the girls watching this to know that a new day is on the horizon and win that new day and finally dance".




"It is an honor - it is an honor and it is a privilege to share the evening with all of them and also with the incredible men and women who have inspired me, who challenged me, who sustained me and made my journey to this stage possible".

"Have you ever thought that, given the popularity you have - we haven't broken the glass ceiling yet for women - that you could actually run for president and actually be elected?" asked Rubenstein. I don't think she had any intention. She alternately smiled mid-morning sunshine and frowned serious detention-period lecture-time in delivering a political speech created to send an exciting jolt of electricity up the leg of every liberal in America. Though as the evening wore on, some seemed to be speaking faster, as the show scurried to make its 11 p.m. deadline while still leaving enough time for Winfrey. "Never let it be said that I don't respect the president of the United States".

"It is the insatiable dedication to uncovering the absolute truth that keeps us from turning a blind eye to corruption and to injustice, to tyrants and victims and secrets and lies", she said. News of host Catt Sadler, who says she left after discovering she was making nowhere near the money her male co-host was making. "You do not have what it takes!"

Without mentioning President Trump by name, she talked about a "new day" in Hollywood with women being empowered.

Oprah is the first African-American woman to receive the award. Dern was joined by farmworker advocate Monica Ramirez, Michelle Williams with "Me Too" founder Tarana Burke, and Meryl Streep with domestic worker advocate Ai-jen Poo.

"It came from such a pure instinctive place", she said on the podcast. The eldest man in the group, Herbert Lovett, ordered Recy and her friends to stop, and when they refused, he pointed a gun at them.

Sterling K. Brown - the first black male actor to win best actor in a drama TV series - noted that he had benefited from colorblind casting over the years, but thanked "This is Us" creator Dan Fogelman for writing a part specifically for a black man.
