Golden Globes Ratings Dip 5 Percent From 2017

Oprah Responds To Rumours She's Planning To Run For President

Other actresses like Michelle Williams and Emma Watson invited activists as their guests on the red carpet to further raise awareness about those who are fighting for equality.

With the ongoing reports on sexual harassment, which have had many popular faces emerged to share their stories, the just concluded golden Globes Awards held on Sunday, held history as celebrities stormed the red carpets with black sophisticated gowns to show their support against sexual harassment. Meyers' ability to frame politics into intelligent and insightful jokes energized the night. In his opening Golden Globe Awards monologue, Meyers said, "Good evening, ladies and remaining gentlemen".

Winfrey had barely finished calling for a "new day" following a sexual harassment watershed, before calls snowballed for one of America's most famous women, a self-made tycoon born into poverty, to run for the highest office in the free world.

As the night progressed, the ceremony saw crucial victories for diversity and social progress. Brown, the first black man to win the category, thanked "This Is Us" creator Dan Fogelman.

In receiving a lifetime achievement award from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Winfrey spoke of her humble upbringing and her childhood respect for civil rights heroes.

Gary Oldman, ac- claimed for virtually disappearing into the role of British wartime prime minister Winston Churchill in "Darkest Hour", took home best actor in a drama. By bringing up Taylor's story, Oprah expanded her speech to something other than herself.

"The Handmaid's Tale" followed up its Emmys night glory, when it won four statuettes, by beating perennial awards juggernaut "Game of Thrones" to the Globe for best TV drama series.

"It is not lost on me that, at this moment, there is some little girl watching as I become the first Black woman to be given the same award", Winfrey said during her incredible acceptance speech (via Entertainment Weekly).

With a cutting stare, presenter Natalie Portman followed Winfrey's speech by introducing, as she said, "the all-male" nominees for best director. But that night, it represented a movement - and the atmosphere seemed charged with hope. This is not someone who blunders into things. "For years, we've sold these awards shows as women, with our gowns and colors and our attractive faces and our glamour".

Winfrey said while there was no justice for Taylor, whose attackers were never prosecuted, her truth lived on in the work of civil rights icon Rosa Parks, an ACLU investigator on Taylor's case.

The sheer volume of allegations made against various male Hollywood actors, directors and agents have rocked Hollywood over the a year ago with allegations dating right back to the 90's.
