Watch Oprah Winfrey's Powerful Lifetime Achievement Award Acceptance Speech at Golden Globes

The touchstone of her speech was the #MeToo movement. "I just hope that Recy Taylor died knowing that her truth, like the truth of so many other women who were tormented in those years and even now, goes marching on", Winfrey said. It was a series about a group of women realizing they're far more powerful as a group than they are as rivals.

Some actors also were accompanied by activists to speak to the cause and create, as Meryl Streep said, "a thick black line dividing then from now".

It was a night of unusually powerful speeches, whether long or short, that touched eloquently on the #MeToo moment. They're the women whose names we'll never know. Using her character to describe a past culture in which people were afraid to speak out, Dern urged Hollywood to support and employ survivors fearless enough to come forward. "We need more women directors and more women to be nominated for best director". "And here are the all-male nominees", Portman archly announced.

During the ceremony, Nicole Kidman also won the first award of the night for her role as a victim of domestic violence.

This isn't the first time that Weight Watchers has been a beneficiary of Winfrey's clout.

A big victor was "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri", in which Frances McDormand plays a mother taunting police to solve the rape and murder of her daughter.

Meyers suggested Christopher Plummer, who'd replaced Spacey as John Paul Getty in All the Money in the World, might do the same for House of Cards: "I hope he can do a Southern accent, because Kevin Spacey sure couldn't". Lovett told Recy to "act just like you do with your husband or I'll cut your damn throat". We are here for the work.

"I want to say that I value the press more than ever before, as we try to navigate these complicated times", she added. (The victor was Guillermo del Toro for The Shape Of Water.) Much later, as Barbra Streisand prepared to present the night's final award, she pointed out that she was the only woman director to ever win the Golden Globe, and that she'd won in 1984. "You have no idea the power of noticing another human being and what it feels like when somebody has truly been seen by you", she said. Michelle Williams was joined, for instance, by Tarana Burke, who began using the phrase "Me Too" years ago in her advocacy for women of color who'd been sexually abused.

Oprah is the first African-American woman to receive the award.

"I actually never thought that that was -- I never considered the conversation even a possibility".

While CNN has quoted two "close friends" who say Oprah is "actively thinking" about running in 2020. Entertainment Television on the issue while doing interviews with them on the red carpet.

"Oprah", Meyers said, looking out at her in the audience, "in 2011, I told some jokes about our current president at the White House Correspondents Dinner - jokes about how he was unqualified to be president - and some have said that night convinced him to run". "I miss Catt Sadler". That's indisputably true, but it's also beside the point.

"It was somewhere in Rosa Parks" heart nearly 11 years later when she made the decision to stay seated on that bus in Montgomery", Winfrey said. He had glowing things to say about her political prospects back in 1999.

She was joking there, too. But the moment has yet to happen - which is one of the reasons Sunday's speech stirred so much attention.

He won for the Cold War-era fantasy "The Shape of Water". "Thank you for what you fought for so hard".
