Oprah Winfrey poses with the Cecil B. DeMille Award in the press room during The 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 7, 2018 in Beverly Hills, California.

Among the many extraordinary aspects of Sunday's Golden Globes, there were few that the internet loved more than the presence of Oprah Winfrey, who was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille award for lifetime achievement. While that was the theme of the evening, with most celebrities wearing black in solidarity with the Time's Up movement and speaking about the issues, Winfrey's rousing message celebrated the people who've fought for women and marked the beginning of a new era.

Addressing the glitzy awards show, Winfrey said: "It's not lost on me that at this moment, there are little girls watching as I become the first black woman to receive this award".

Newton was clearly shaken up, and as he walked toward the Panthers' sideline, he fell to his knees. "I appreciate him. We saw him rock back and forth. "Yeah, you know, Carolina picked him up so the brothers could reunite", Jordan said.

However, Winfrey has already previously said she wouldn't run a number of times, telling her King on CBS This Morning in October, "There will be no running for office of any kind for me".

"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". "I am especially proud of all of the women who have felt strong enough and empowered enough to speak up and share their personal stories".

She expressed gratitude for Taylor and all the women who were silenced when they spoke out about powerful men, the women who worked in factories, farms, as domestic workers and in academia, whose names will never be known. "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".

Winfrey continued and said the story transcends any culture, geography, politics or workplace.

Winfrey also talked about the legacy of Recy Taylor, a black woman who was gang-raped by six women in 1944.

She also expressed her gratitude for the press, which she said is "under siege these days", and for the men and women who have fought to speak the truth even when it is hard. Taylor died 10 days ago, Winfrey pointed out.
