Watch Every Second of Oprah's Amazing Speech at the Golden Globes

It takes a lot to bring down the house at award shows, even ones as silly as the Golden Globes, but leave it to Oprah Winfrey to do exactly that. After an emotional introduction by her A Wrinkle in Time co-star Reese Witherspoon, Oprah took to the stage to deliver a powerful and amazing speech after receiving the 2018's Cecil B. de Mille award.

Every second of that speech is worth listening to, and it sounds like she is about announce her intention to run for office. She brought the house to their feet, and no one really knew how to react afterwards.

She continued her speech backstage to the press, according to Deadline.

"I always think and know, having watched over the years, when something really negative is brewing, there is the direct opposite reaction that is possible. When something as big as Harvey Weinstein happens, there is an opportunity for powerful growth." She focused on sexual harassment and posed the question, "How do we use this moment to elevate instead of continuing victimizing?"

She once again brought up the tragic story of Recy Taylor, who was gang raped by six white men in 1944 and there was no recourse. This ultimately helped inspire Rosa Parks and the civil rights movement seeking justice for Taylor.

"It's been happening for a long time. There have been so many women who remained silent and there was no recourse," said Winfrey. "Now that we have joined as one voice, it feels empowering to those women who never had it."
