Actors at the Golden Globes awards took a stand Sunday night against all the crap that women face; women and men wore black to address sexual harassment, sexual abuse and pay inequality. It was an evening that recognized the #MeToo and Time’s Up campaigns.
Many seemed wowed by the presence of Oprah Winfrey, who was the recipient of the Cecil B. Demille Award, which recognizes outstanding achievement in entertainment. She acknowledged she is the first black women to win the award since its inception in 1952; Sidney Poitier was the first black man to be given the award in 1982.
It seemed that Oprah’s speech would be the best moment of the night … that is until Natalie Portman got up with Ron Howard to announce the best director nominees.
