You could imagine Oprah's speech being given in Iowa — CNN's Cillizza

Yet another Kardashian is bringing in the new year by getting naked

On Monday morning, NBC put out a press release reporting that more than 19 million people watched the Golden Globes.

Pink released her seventh studio album, "Beautiful Trauma", in October.

"You gave me the courage to speak out". From the all-black wardrobes, to the Time's Up buttons, to the acceptance speeches, the 2018 Golden Globes centered on women's equality and empowerment. The power in the moment, of being the first black woman to receive the award, was nearly eclipsed by the power of Oprah's words.

"I value the press more than ever before", she added, equating modern days to "complicated times".

"Each of us in this room are celebrated because of the stories that we tell, and this year we became the story", Winfrey said in reference to the outpouring of sexual harassment claims in Hollywood.

"She lived, as we all have lived, too many years in a culture broken by brutally powerful men", Winfrey said. Their time is up!

While discussing the Time's Up initiative, which was recently launched to combat sexual harassment and sexual assault in Hollywood and beyond, she praised the solidarity shown by men and women at the awards show, as multiple celebrities opted to wear black to promote the movement.

"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?"

The rumour mill then went into overdrive when CNN reported that sources close to the 63-year-old said she is "actively thinking" about challenging Trump. By injecting politics, Winfrey immediately made her speech divisive instead of unifying. We've all known that to be true for a while.

The idea of bumper stickers reading "Oprah 2020" may be a liberal fantasy, but some Democratic Party activists are chattering about a Winfrey for president campaign anyway.

It was a night of big stars and pointed statements.

The reactions on social media nearly as powerful as Oprah's speech. YOU are part of the problem.

Sunday night's black-clad demonstration was promoted by the recently formed Time's Up.

"For equity and parity across all industries. It's about systemic toxicity across all industries", she said.

It wasn't clear if Blanco didn't get the memo or just chose to go her own way.

"Woman" was the word of Sunday's Golden Globes Awards.

Her male counterpart was Gary Oldman, who picked up best actor in a drama for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in The Darkest Hour. Guilermo del Toro, Martin McDonagh, Sam Rockwell, Rachel Brosnahan and Alexander Skarsgard also received their first Globes. -Original Score: Alexandre Desplat, "The Shape of Water".

While music is not a major portion of the awards, it didn't stop The Greatest Showman winning best original song in a movie, "This is Me". TELEVISION -Series, Drama - "The Handmaid's Tale". -Actress, Series, Musical or Comedy: Rachel Brosnahan, "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel".

The Time's Up campaign took the awards by storm, where a powerful speech from Oprah Winfrey stole the show and host Seth Meyer's jokes set the tone.
