President Oprah? After the Golden Globes, Some Have a 2020 Vision


Recommended Posts


Among the many extraordinary aspects of Sunday’s Golden Globes, there were few that the internet loved more than the presence of Oprah Winfrey, who was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille award for lifetime achievement.

Her outsize footprint at the ceremony was evident from the opening moments. The host, Seth Meyers, who once taunted Donald J. Trump from the stage of the White House Correspondents Association dinner and, some say, helped spur him to run for president, now used his monologue to level a similar jab at Ms. Winfrey.

On Wikipedia and Twitter — including the official NBC account — the prospect of an Oprah candidacy quickly gathered momentum.

The television icon, film producer and actress was a magnet for cameras throughout the telecast — smiling, laughing, bowing and inspiring a constellation of memes. Most had a similar thrust: Next to Ms. Winfrey, even the Hollywood elite were but mere mortals.

Her acceptance speech was the most rapturously received of the night. Ms. Winfrey spoke of being inspired by an earlier DeMille award winner, Sidney Poitier; told the story of Recy Taylor, the black civil rights activist who died late last month; and promised young girls across the country that in the aftermath of the #MeToo movement, “a new day is on the horizon.”


Probably the most extraordinary & inspiring moment I’ve ever witnessed at an award show. I had to dry my eyes before presenting the director’s award right after @Oprah ‘s speech. https://twitter.com/thehill/status/950219521381535744 


As for the question of a running mate if Ms. Winfrey should run for the highest office in the land, the internet had suggestions for that, too.
