"And here are all the male nominees", she said, introducing Christopher Nolan (Dunkirk), Martin McDonagh (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), Steven Spielberg (The Post), Ridley Scott (All the Money in the World) and eventual victor, The Shape of Water filmmaker Guillermo del Toro.

Even if he didn't, the Grand Party of the American Left wouldn't need a special-counsel investigation to learn how much it would a benefit from having a charming, worldly, sophisticated, traveled, extremely successful, super-smart black woman as its standard bearer.

"I am all about Oprah 2020", said another Golden Globes victor, Allison Janney. "I don't think she had any intention (of declaring)".

The audience rose to their feet and remained standing as Winfrey sent a message to "all the girls" watching her speech. It gave a vision on how to move forward.

The Golden Globes kicked off with a monologue from host Seth Meyers, who immediately chose to talk about the disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

Sopore: Four cops killed in IED blast
The spokesperson claimed that five forces' personnel were killed and several others suffered injuries in the attack. The security forces launched cordon and search operation in the area after the blast but no arrests were made.

When the show started, the focus stayed where it was, as host Seth Meyers made harassment the focus of most of his monologue, including a brutal and direct Harvey Weinstein joke. "And some have said that night convinced him to run".

'In my career, what I've always tried my best to do, whether on television or through film, is to say something about how men and women really behave.

Though Winfrey has previously denied that she plans to run for office, the night refueled the conversation, with her longtime partner Stedman Graham even telling the L.A. Times: "It's up to the people".

But just as the evening began to lose the focus the red carpet had brought, Oprah Winfrey became the first black woman to win the Cecil B. DeMille Award, and she spent almost all her time talking about the long struggle for justice for women. Trump has famously derided stories about him and entire news organizations as "fake news". If that is the case, Meyers told Winfrey during the awards show: "So if that's true, I just want to say: Oprah, you will never be president!" "Speaking your truth is the most powerful tool that we all have".

Trump told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos in 2015, shortly after announcing his presidential bid, that a 2016 ticket of Trump for president and Winfrey for vice president would be a lock for the White House. "I thought, 'Oh gee, I don't have the experience, I don't know enough.' And now I'm thinking, 'Oh'".

"Folks, time's up", she said.

"2020, I'm wondering if you've narrowed down your shortlist of VP candidates", co-anchor and best friend Gayle King joked.

"It was very important to all of us involved with Time's Up that it not just be about the women of Hollywood because we're already a privileged group but to extend to the women of the world because as I said tonight there isn't a culture a race a religion or politic a workplace that hasn't been affected by it".

Simone Johnson, the 16-year-old daughter of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, became not Miss Golden Globes - a title that seems to have been retired, and not a moment too soon - but the HFPA's first "ambassador".

The theme was echoed by Laura Dern, victor of a best supporting actress for Big Little Lies, who said: "Many of us were taught not to tattle".

Manufacturing sector shows record growth in December
