Seth Meyers, Oprah, viewers exhausted of Trump jokes — Golden Globes winners

Trump himself has lavished praise on Winfrey over the years, including in 2015, when he said that he would consider her as a running mate on his Republican ticket.

Winfrey's speech as she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award on Sunday touched on her humble upbringing and childhood wonder in civil rights heroes.

But Winfrey has addressed a potential run for office several times since the 2016 election. News of host Catt Sadler, who says she left after discovering she was making nowhere near the money her male co-host was making. The person emphasized that Winfrey has not made up her mind about running.

A representative for Winfrey did not reply to a request Monday for comment from The Associated Press.

"For too long women have not been heard or believed if they dared to speak their truth to the power of those men, but their time is up", continued Winfrey, who became the first African-American woman to be honored with the Golden Globes' Cecil B. DeMille Award.

"It's clear that you don't need government experience to be elected president of the United States, right?"

This year, it was all gender politics, and of course the #MeToo movement that has engulfed Hollywood and spread into the culture at large with astonishing speed. And that may have been exactly what Winfrey wanted.

She had a tip for how to make it in showbiz, or any vocation, for that matter.

For now, it's all just talk.

Winfrey's speech lit up Twitter. 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.

Mixed messaging in camera work: To the NBC red-carpet camera operator who vertically panned Margot Robbie's "Time's Up"-themed black gown to display maximum cleavage. She would absolutely do it", he said".

Asked whether she'd win in a race against Trump, she said she didn't know, but that doesn't matter.

Simone Johnson, the 16-year-old daughter of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, became not Miss Golden Globes - a title that seems to have been retired, and not a moment too soon - but the HFPA's first "ambassador".

Ms Taylor, 24, was abducted, blindfolded and raped on her way home from an Alabama church in 1944 by six armed white men.

Winfrey laughed while the studio audience applauded.

She recently sold part of her stake in OWN but renewed her contract to remain CEO through 2025.

But would she consider a 2020 presidential run?

Winfrey's next role is in Ava DuVernay's movie "A Wrinkle in Time", which comes out in April.

But her fans portrayed her as the ideal anti-Trump candidate - that is, if she's willing to run.

Ever outspoken in speeches and social media, she stayed away from partisanship.

"I am all about Oprah 2020", said another Golden Globes victor, Allison Janney.

She went on: "So I want tonight to express gratitude to all the women who have endured years of abuse and assault because they, like my mother, had children to feed and bills to pay and dreams to pursue".

"I remember his tie, it was white, and of course his skin was black, and I had never seen a black man being celebrated like that", she said.

Earlier in the evening, Globes host Seth Meyers actually teed up the speculation. "A new day is on the horizon", she said. Lovett told Recy to "act just like you do with your husband or I'll cut your damn throat". You do not have what it takes.
