Stars Talk Time's Up, #WhyWeWearBlack at Golden Globes

Angelina Jolie Kate Beckinsale and Margot Robbie

It's not surprising that Ivanka Trump would cheer a fellow female leader-she often tweets inspirational messages targeted at women-but Winfrey's speech as she received the Cecil B. DeMille Award offered plenty of subtle and less-subtle criticism of the president. It gave us more freedom. Way back in December, actresses announced that they'll be wearing head-to-toe black to drive the conversation towards sexual harassment, wage gap and gender parity. It was moving, and full of important issues that are more relevant than ever to discuss. "Oprah would always be my first choice", he said.

They tried to get a woman to host this show, they really did. "I value the press more than ever before".

Years later, Sidney went on to receive the 1982 Cecil B. DeMille Award, leaving history in his wake. People were quick to point out that Donald Trump has been accused of sexual harassment and misconduct by as many as 17 women. And almost every soul wore black in support of the Time's Up movement and as a statement against sexual misconduct in Hollywood. She opened the envelope and said five words that literally made history: "The victor is Sidney Poitier".

Sanders was also asked whether she believed Winfrey was qualified to run for president. 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. The activists invited to attended included Tarana Burke, the founder of the #MeToo movement, Ai-jen Poo, the director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance and Saru Jayaram, a workplace justice advocate. They are working in factories and they work in restaurants and they're in academia, engineering, medicine, and science. Trump, of course, was a businessman-turned-reality-television-star before his extraordinary political rise. "They're our athletes in the Olympics and they're our soldiers in the military", Oprah said.

This post originally appeared in The Hollywood Reporter.

The internet lit up, and her longtime partner Stedman Graham added fuel to the fire, telling the Los Angeles Times that Winfrey would "absolutely" run for president - if the American people want her to.

BBC broke down Oprah's speech into components of rhetoric: "Personal touch, Statement of goal, Compelling anecdote, Call to action".

Even decades later, in a 2015 interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos, the then-presidential candidate doubled-down on his comments about Oprah.

"They're the women whose names we'll never know".

While Meyers didn't stray away from talking about the change in -and outside of - Hollywood, he was one of the only men at the show to mention it. Taylor died late previous year at the age of 97.

"I'm especially proud and inspired by all the women who have felt strong enough and empowered enough to speak up and share their personal stories", Winfrey said. "But their time is up, their time is up". Trust me: the women in this room tonight are not here for the food.
