Even before a single shoe had touched the red carpet, it was clear that the Globes would be the platform for the recently launched Time's Up movement, formed in response to the countless women and men from all industry who have shared their experiences of sexual harassment.

The 36-year-old entrepreneur took to Twitter and wrote, "Just saw Oprah's empowering & inspiring speech at last night's Golden Globes".

Oprah Winfrey, the first African-American woman to receive the Golden Globes' annual Cecil B DeMille award on Sunday delivered the really powerful speech.

She continued, "When they first called me and told me they want me to accept this, I said, 'I shouldn't be person to get the Cecil B. DeMille Award.' You know why?" A poll previous year pegged her approval rating well above Mr. Trump, but almost 70 percent of those respondents also said she should not run for president.

Washington Post blogger Jennifer Rubin also took a jab at Ivanka, calling her a hypocrite and "clueless".

Trump himself has been accused of being a serial sexual predator by more than a dozen women.

MeToo march

The best moment of the Golden Globes has to be awarded to Natalie Portman, for announcing her category with so much (required) sass. Winfrey has an especially strong connection to women and non-whites and her personal fortune may go a long way toward financing a presidential campaign. The show, based on Margeret Atwood's dystopian novel in which women have no right and exist only to reproduce, was up against The Crown, Game of Thrones, Stranger Things, and This is Us. They are domestic workers and farmworkers. They are working in factories and they work in restaurants and they're in academia, engineering, medicine, and science.

"Which brings me to this: What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have. They're our athletes in the Olympics and they're our soldiers in the military", Oprah said.

CNN senior media correspondent Brian Stelter weighed in as well, noting that there might be pushback against Winfrey from Democrats, given that there are "not a lot of obvious candidates who have star power and charisma" and Winfrey might dominate the race by virtue of her fame.

"It's up to the people", Stedman Graham was quoted as telling The Los Angeles Times. Her speech sparked speculations that Oprah might be open to running for President, but she has yet to confirm her decision.

Asked about a potential Winfrey candidacy in 2020, a White House spokesman said, "We welcome the challenge, whether it be Oprah Winfrey or anybody else". "She would absolutely do it".
