"And some have said that night convinced him to run".

Oprah Winfrey's moving speech at the Golden Globes has some fans and fellow celebrities calling for her presidential run. "She would absolutely do it", Graham said. And now, I'm thinking, 'Oh! "Whatever you do, though, Oprah, don't use emails!"

"I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon", she concluded. "And I think we're going to see this on both sides from here on out".

Beyond her rise from poverty, Winfrey's success as a multidimensional media figure has come from promoting ways for women to assert themselves, typically outside the political arena. They're the complete opposite. It was so great.

Reese Witherspoon alluded to her friend's superstar status while introducing her at the Globes: "There's only one person whose name is a verb, an adjective, and a feeling".

"That said, given the choice between Oprah and our current president, I'm on the bus with Oprah traveling the country encouraging people to sign up and vote", he said. "But these days, it plays a little coherent".

But CNN quoted two anonymous "close friends" as saying Winfrey was "actively thinking" about a presidential run. I'd love to have Oprah.

"But I offer a note of caution: Do we really want to elect another billionaire TV star?" For instance, Donald Trump does.

In a now-deleted tweet, NBC News also touched on the situation, posting a photo of Winfrey alongside the caption, "Nothing but respect for OUR president".

"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.

Her stunning speech again has people wondering if some day reporters will be covering her arrival as a US President the way she as a reporter once did. President Oprah or President The Rock or President Mark Zuckerberg or President Whoever-the-hell-else is the Trumpified extension of this process. I feel like it would.

Nearly immediately talk of a possible presidential bid erupted on social media, while on Monday the airwaves and TV talk shows were alight with speculation about whether the most powerful African-American woman in the world could consider a presidential run.

"But this could be a big story".

Winfrey previously said during an appearance on "CBS This Morning" there would be "no running for office of any kind" for her, though she did not discuss the subject after Sunday's Golden Globes. "Stranger things have happened", he said, referring to Donald Trump's presidential win in 2016. Don't get too excited. Could the former talk show host be considering a run for the White House?

"She's so important", Janney said.

Jones tweeted: "It's been an absolute honour to support and stand by you since the beginning my dear @Oprah".

When the industry you work in is toxic, you sometimes have to hold your nose and get through before you can change it, or you leave, and never get the chance.
