'Oprah for President' doesn't sound so mad now, does it?

Oprah Winfrey received the Cecil B. de Mille Award at last night's Golden Globes and to say she made the most of her time on stage would be a massive understatement.

Introduced by her 'A Wrinkle in Time' co-star Reese Witherspoon, Winfrey dove right in and recalled Sidney Poitier's 1964 Golden Globes win and its effect on her and how she now stood in his place, saying: "It’s not lost on me that at this moment, there are little girls watching as I become the first black woman to receive this award."

Winfrey also thanked the Hollywood Foreign Press and celebrated the free press, saying: "We all know the press is under siege, the it’s the insatiable dedication to uncovering the absolute truth that keeps us from turning a blind eye to corruption and injustice, to tyrants, and victims and secrets and lies. I want to say that I value the press more than ever before as we tried to navigate these complicated times."

She then moved on to celebrate the women who have spoken out about abuse and contributed to movements like 'Me Too' and 'Time's Up', saying: "What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have, and I’m especially proud and inspired by all the women who have felt strong enough and empowered enough to speak up and share their personal stories.

Each of us in this room are celebrated because of the stories that they tell, and this year we become the story.

But it’s not just a story affecting the entertainment industry. It’s one that transcends any culture, geography, race, religious, politics or workplace. I want to express gratitude to all the women who have endured years of abuse and assault, because they, like my mother, had children to feed and bills to pay and dreams to pursue."

Of course, an experienced orator such as Winfrey was never going to disappoint but so rousing and affecting was her speech that people all over are calling her to run for president in 2020.

It really is a must-watch.
