After Her Golden Globes Speech, People Want Oprah to Run for President in 2020 & Same

After receiving the Cecil B. DeMille award at the 75th Golden Globes last night and becoming the first black woman to get the award, Oprah Winfrey made a speech to remember — one that many are saying sounded a bit...*presidential.*

Winfrey initially spoke about her childhood, and how she watched Sidney Poitier become the first black man to win an Academy Award for Best Actor in 1964. She said it changed her life because she finally saw someone who looked like her being celebrated, and noted that young girls watching the awards home might have the same reaction to Winfrey as she had to Pontier.

She then mentioned her appreciation for the press and its mission to reveal the truth, and how there are so many people affected by sexual harassment in the workplace far outside of the scope of Hollywood. Her speech also included direct acknowledgement of the Time's Up campaign, and Recy Taylor, a black woman raped by a group of white men who were never brought to justice. 

"I've interviewed and portrayed people who've withstood some of the ugliest things life can throw at you, but the one quality all of them seem to share is an ability to maintain hope for a brighter morning, even during our darkest nights," Winfrey concluded her speech. "So I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon! And 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."

After Winfrey finished speaking, Twitter was buzzing with mentions about a possible presidential run for the multi-talented star in 2020:

Everyone's excitement was only ignited further when her longtime partner, Stedman Graham spoke on the matter. "It's up to the people. She would absolutely do it," he told the Los Angeles Times.

Last year's Cecil B. DeMille winner, Meryl Streep said that she would support Winfrey's run for president. 

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson had previously made comments about his own possible run for office in 2020. Maybe he and Winfrey can work out some sort of deal.
