Trump might really regret this interview about Oprah Winfrey

But the moment has yet to happen - which is one of the reasons Sunday's speech stirred so much attention.

Stars wore black to honour victims at the first major Hollywood awards ceremony since the film industry was hit by various harassment scandals. "It's 2018 and marijuana is finally allowed and sexual harassment finally isn't".

Although Oprah Winfrey has repeatedly denied speculation that she will run for president, her Golden Globes speech has all of Hollywood hoping she will.

He referred to the 2011 White House Correspondents Association dinner when he and Barack Obama mocked the idea of Trump becoming USA president. "Do the work that comes straight from the soul of you", she said. If you needed a new roof put on your house and somebody came to you saying, "I'm a computer programmer, not a roofer", going on to explain that the roofing business is a mess and all you need is some outside-the-box thinking to make your roof better than ever, you'd be a fool to hire him. You do not have what it takes.

In accepting an award for lifetime achievement, Oprah Winfrey did more than offer an uplifting speech geared toward the Hollywood elite gathered for the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards.

Weinstein - a longtime awards fixture and, many groused, fixer - wasn't present, Meyers said, but he'd be back in 20 years as "the first person ever booed at the In Memoriam". Eighteen years later, he received the Cecil B DeMille award at the 1982 Golden Globes.

Oprah dedicated her Cecil B. DeMille award to "all the women who have endured years of abuse and assault".

The assembled entertainment-industry Oprah adulators traded places with the Washington press corps as this nation's premier Republican-disdaining, Trump-hating leftists.

But with all the eloquent speeches, none roused the room like Winfrey's, who had the crowd giving her repeated ovations as she issued a warning - not once, but three times - to powerful men who abuse women: "Their time is up!"

Streep brought along Ai-jen Poo, director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance. They are working in factories and they work in restaurants and they're in academia, engineering, medicine, and science. "I can't get them to actually respond because a skilled politician knows how to give the answer they want". "They're our athletes in the Olympics and they're our soldiers in the military". (Guillermo del Toro won for "The Shape of Water.") Barbra Streisand also took a jab at the Globes, noting that she'd been the only woman to have won best director - in 1984.

She dedicated her win to her castmates, daughters and mother, saying: "Wow, the power of women". What he was grateful for, Brown said, is that "I'm being seen for who I am and being appreciated for who I am, and it makes it that much more hard to dismiss me or dismiss anybody who looks like me".

"It was a culture of silencing, and that was normalised".

This is the speech we need our children to watch.

Although Winfrey has deflected questions about a presidential run in the past, she has also acknowledged that President Trump's election upended assumptions about how to pursue political office.

A March 2017 poll by Quinnipiac University that handed Trump a 41 percent job approval rating, said 52 percent of respondents had a favourable opinion of Winfrey.

One of the most glaring snubs in this year's movie nominations came in the best director category, where Greta Gerwig was passed over for her much-loved "Lady Bird".

Other winners included The Marvelous Mrs Maisel for best TV comedy and The Handmaid's Tale for best TV drama. During Clinton's campaign, she discussed the prospect of a female president and said "America, it's about time that we made that decision".
