Podcast: Here's what it was like covering the Golden Globes blackout

Winfrey's feminist speech, which promised young women viewers that "a new day is on the horizon", stole the show at the January 7 awards ceremony, the Daily Mail notes.

Winfrey's speech immediately lit up Twitter with politicians, Hollywood figures, other prominent people and ordinary fans who expressed an appreciation for the speech, but also described a sense that Winfrey's words could help change the national conversation.

But the co-hosts aren't convinced Oprah wants to run for President, as the announcing her decision to run would "polarise the country", according columnist Meghan McCain.

Winfrey, in September and October, publicly dismissed the notion of seeking the nation's highest office, though she noted that Trump's victory made her rethink the requirements of the office.

The video is again going viral following Winfrey's blistering attack on sexual predators at the annual awards ceremony, where she received the Cecil B. DeMille award and praised the press for its coverage of the sexual harassment and abuse accusations levelled at a number of powerful men. Thoroughly impressed, she brought the senator onto her show in 2006. "I think one of the arguments against Oprah is 45".

"So, the speech, I guess I was a little taken aback in how - you could close your eyes and imagine that speech being given in Iowa, let's say, right?" "Oh!'" she said in March 2017, during an interview with David Rubenstein on Bloomberg. "We now know that this partisan fight has becomes a fierce battle for the soul of America", Steyer said.

"In 2011, I told some jokes about our current president at the White House Correspondent's Dinner", he said.
