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

Post by oneopinion » Wed Jan 10, 2018 1:03 am

Oprah Winfrey earned multiple standing ovations at Sunday's Golden Globes as she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award with a moving speech referencing civil rights and the #MeToo movement, declaring that the reign of abusive men was coming to an end: "Their time is up!"

The OWN founder, former talk show host, actress, film and TV producer and humanitarian became the first black woman to be given the award, which was presented in Beverly Hills, California. She spoke about the feelings she had as a young girl watching Sidney Poitier win the best-actor Oscar in 1964 and likened the pride she felt watching Poitier, the first black man to win that trophy, to the impact she hoped she could have on young women today.

Quite the misandrist and sexist speech.

I can’t believe the cry for her candidacy. 8-|

I have never heard anything about who won what award. It was all about Oprah.
