Golden Globes US TV audience down 5 percent despite Oprah, Time's Up

Golden Globes US TV audience down 5 percent despite Oprah, Time's Up

"I also know that after years of watching the Oprah show, you always have the right to change your mind". A reporter asked Stedman Graham, Oprah's partner, whether she'd run.

All eyes were on the awards show Sunday night - singularly on how Hollywood would call attention to #MeToo, the movement that began as a snowball and turned into an avalanche.

Many Hollywood icons in attendance had previously not missed a chance to make pointed political remarks.

On Twitter, the 36-year-old actess continued to defend her fashion choice, writing, "The issue is bigger than my dress colour" and "Shaming is part of the problem". He then told Oprah, "You will never be president!" I like Oprah, is that supposed to be a bad thing?

Even so, for Democrats in early voting states, and perhaps for a public that largely disapproves of Trump's job performance, the notion of a popular media figure as a presidential candidate is not as odd as it once seemed.

"If I were hosting the Golden Globes this weekend, I wouldn't be fearless enough to do the joke I've just thought of", Gervais said Wednesday. But this time, the notion has gone viral, and some feel the time is right.

"She lived, as we have lived, too many years in a culture broken by brutally powerful men", Winfrey said.

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

Oprah Winfrey has done some pretty incredible things during her career, whether she's giving away cars to a whole studio full of people, or raising loads of money for charity. "I think there was a collective feeling that it wouldn't be business as usual".

The first daughter - and White House senior adviser - quote-tweeted Oprah's acceptance speech calling it "empowering and inspiring". And though polls show his approval up slightly since, Trump is the least popular first-year president on record. She weaved together her own personal narrative and memories of seeing Sidney Poitier win an Academy Award when she was a girl, with the story of Recy Taylor and the #MeToo movement into the most memorable, and moving moment of the evening. "There'll be no running for office of any kind for me", she told CBS last October.

The 64-year-old media mogul has become a cultural phenomenon over the past 30-plus years, born into a poor home in MS but breaking through as a television news and talk show personality in the 1980s. I've been on her show ...

That's not to say Winfrey can't claim any significant political influence. "I just don't have the inclination, I love what I'm doing, I really like it". "And I think we would be a very formidable team", said Trump at the time, according to The Washington Post.

Could Oprah Winfrey run for president and beat Donald Trump? "They said, 'Hey, how'd you like to come and be judged by some of the most powerful people in Hollywood?' And they said, 'Hm, where is it?' And they said, 'It's at a hotel.' Long story short, I'm your host tonight".

The speech, which received a standing ovation, prompted several tweets urging the television host to consider standing for president.

Of course, given that Oprah publicly endorsed the president's rival Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election (and was a vocal supporter of President Barack Obama), it's doubtful that this would ever come to fruition.

Laura Dern, Best Supporting Actress victor for HBO's "Big Little Lies", said: "Many of us were taught not to tattle".
