Winfrey says 'time is up' for abusive men in Globes speech

Winfrey says 'time is up' for abusive men in Globes speech

I'd never seen a black man being celebrated like that. But all she could do was quote Poitier and say, "Amen, amen'".

She said that she came to learn this particular lesson after hundreds of interviews on her erstwhile show, when everyone from convicted murderers to doctors "to Beyoncé" would say the very same thing the moment the interview was over and the camera was off. "For too long women have not been heard of believed if they dared to speak to the power of those men but their "time is up", she said.

Anti-sexual harassment group Time's Up, which led the night's all-black fashion movement, has made it a point to highlight the fact that sexual harassment is not a problem unique to Hollywood.

The media mogul said she wants to express gratitude to the women who "endured years of abuse and assault" because they, like Winfrey's mother, had "children to feed and bills to pay and dreams to pursue". "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".

Khloe Kardashian Told Her Crew She Was Pregnant Before Her Actual Family
No one will know you're pregnant, they're just like, 'Oh, you should get back in the gym.' And you just feel the worst. It's not like Khloe lost the weight for her health - she's always been pretty upfront that it's just for "revenge".

"They're the women whose names we'll never know", Winfrey said. "Recy Taylor died ten days ago", shared Winfrey.

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.

"(Taylor) lived too many years in a culture broken by brutally powerful men. The single greatest wisdom I received, other than what I already told you, is that the key to fulfillment, success, and contentment in life is aligning your personality with what your soul came to do. when you can use your personality to serve what that thing is, you can be successful.

"Here are all the male nominees", she said, while the men in question looked surprised. "I want all the girls watching here and now to know that a new day is on the horizon!" Past recipients include Sidney Poitier, Barbra Streisand, Steven Spielberg, and George Clooney.

Warriors' Curry too hot for Clippers
Tatum recorded a career-best six blocked shots as Boston had 13 blocks while playing without centre Al Horford (sore left calf). The Celtics were trailing by one when Tatum got the ball and drove for a powerful slam that gave them an 84-83 lead.

Backstage, Winfrey continued the master class she began during her acceptance speech as only Oprah can-awing the reporters so much that they stopped typing, stood and clapped, and some even approached after the Q&A for selfies.

Winfrey, who got her start in television journalism, also thanked the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which gives out the Golden Globes.

She also talked a lot about inspiring young women to achieve.
