Oprah Winfrey blew the roof off the Golden Globes 2018 with an acceptance speech that will no doubt resonate for years to come.
The multi-media maven was awarded the Cecil B. DeMille Award and seized the moment to shine light on the plight of those affected by (and who have spoken up against) sexual harassment and social injustice. Poignant given the current #MeToo and #TimesUp movement sweeping through Hollywood.
Speaking on the matter, she said:
“What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have. 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.”
Drawing on narratives such as that of Recy Taylor and others, Winfrey earned multiple standing ovations from the capacity crowd.
An expert and inspiring orator, Winfrey wowed like only she can.
