Winfrey says 'time is up' for abusive men in Globes speech

Winfrey says 'time is up' for abusive men in Globes speech

The phrase also referenced the "Time's Up" initiative led by women in Hollywood and others to combat sexual misconduct; that was at the center of the message actresses sent by wearing mainly black at the Globes on Sunday night.

The host of the Golden Globes, late-night comedian Seth Meyers, jokingly urged Winfrey to run in his opening monologue, noting that Donald Trump had reportedly decided make his bid for the office after he was the butt of Meyers's jokes at the White House Correspondents Dinner in 2011.

She brought the crowd at the Beverly Hilton to its feet.

It was an impressive sight each time the camera swept across the room.

Even so, for Democrats in early voting states, and perhaps for a public that largely disapproves of President Donald Trump's job performance, the notion of a popular media figure as a presidential candidate is not as odd as it once seemed, given the NY real estate mogul and reality TV star now in the White House.

If the speculation is wishful thinking, Winfrey's fame and wealth, extraordinary personal story overcoming poverty, teenage rape and pregnancy to build a $2.6 billion fortune and Oscar-nominated acting career, would stack up nicely in her favor. Supporting actress and actor Laura Dern and Alexander Skarsgard also won.

The past week's protests have been the largest since the disputed 2009 presidential election , which ended in bloodshed. The protests initially started peacefully but turned violent in some cases when hooligans joined the demonstrators.

"Have you ever thought that, given the popularity you have - we haven't broken the glass ceiling yet for women - that you could actually run for president and actually be elected?" asked Rubenstein.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, which labors to manufacture a version of mid-American authenticity and to say something about anger, apparently persuaded the HFPA, which gave awards to Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell and the screenplay by Martin McDonagh.

The Marvellous Mrs Maisel won the best comedy series and the star of the Amazon original, Rachel Brosnahan, was named best actress in a comedy.

Moments later, Sterling K. Brown, the victor of Best Actor in a Drama Series, did the exact same thing. They're part of the world of tech and politics and business.

Natalie Portman's Golden Globes speech was very candid about an uncomfortable truth
If she had received a nomination, however, Gerwig wouldn't have been the first woman to do so. The best director category previously received backlash for its lack of female nominees.

After reading a quote from Atwood, she told the audience: "We no longer live in the gaps. we are the story in print and we are writing the story ourselves". You look at the room and there is everybody you have always admired! We are here for the work.

Winfrey began by discussing Sidney Poitier, who won the 1964 Academy Award for best actor and, in doing so, became the first black man to win an Oscar.

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. 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".

"I think lessons we all learned from watching Hillary's run, and how her ambition was unfavorably and unfairly viewed, coupled with Oprah's existing popularity, could give Oprah a strong start", Palmieri said. It seemed to rile up Natalie Portman, who came out with Ron Howard to present the award for Best Director and pointedly introduced the "all-male nominees".

The Globes have a reputation, deserved or not, for being the fun! awards show - the unrestricted schmooziness!
