Oprah wins over Golden Globes night with impassioned speech
By accepting her Cecil B. DeMille Award on Sunday night at the Golden Globes, Oprah Winfrey became the first black woman to be awarded a Golden Globe for lifetime achievement. In response to the accolade, the American media proprietor, talk show host, actor, producer, and philanthropist delivered an impassioned speech in support of those who have exposed sexual misconduct in Hollywood and beyond. Her inspiring and stirring speech instantly became the highlight of the night and reverberated worldwide. "A new day is on the horizon. When that new day finally dawns, it will be because of the magnificent women and many of them are in this room tonight," she said. “For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dared speak the truth to the power of those men. But their time is up."

The audience responded to her speech with a standing ovation.
