Oprah’s Golden Globes Cecil B. DeMille Award Speech Just Set the Internet on Fire

Oprah Winfrey just dropped the mic with the most powerful speech of the night (and of the whole year, so far) while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes. The mogul and film star addressed race, politics, and the #MeToo movement in her classic, electrifying Oprah fashion.

“So I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon!” she said at the end of her speech. “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, 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.”


Audience members responded with genuine praise, applauding Winfrey’s words and responding with a standing ovation. (We wouldn’t be surprised if they shed a few tears as well.) But the celebration didn’t end there. Home viewers and fans online responded to Oprah’s speech with the best Twitter reactions.
