This is why HFPA president Meher Tatna didn't wear black for the Golden Globes

Oprah Winfrey delivered a powerful speech at yesterday's Golden Globes which has prompted speculation she is contemplating a Presidential run in 2020.

As she received a lifetime achievement award from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the actress and TV star spoke of her humble upbringing and her childhood respect for civil rights heroes. Would Oprah Winfrey make a good president? When a Bloomberg reporter asked Winfrey about the trending hashtag Sunday night, she denied that she plans to run.

"I do think she's intrigued by the idea", King said Tuesday morning. A friend emphasized to CNN that "Winfrey has not made up her mind about running".

It often takes an Oprah Winfrey, someone undisputedly at the top of the game, to drop the anvil.

Oprah has always been associated with Democratic politics and fundraising and was a vocal early supporter of former president Barack Obama.

This was backed up by her long term partner, Stedman Graham, who told the LA Times she would "absolutely do it".




With nearly three years to run, there is still all to play for in the 2020 presidential election.

No clear Democratic front-runner has emerged to challenge Trump in 2020, with the immediate political focus in the USA on November's congressional elections, when the 435-member House of Representatives will be up for election, along with a third of the 100-member Senate. Actor Natasha Rothwell also weighed in, reminding Ivanka of the accusations against her dad, as did author Michael Wolff, who said, "Who does she think her father is?"

Even she is facing criticism, however, from those who haven't paid any attention to her history of speaking out about abuse or who have failed to learn the lesson we've all been hearing.

Harry Potter and The OA star Jason Isaacs also enthused about the speech, tweeting: "If you didn't watch Oprah elevating the art of communication and inspiration at the GoldenGlobes, get your children - get your daughters - and do yourselves a favour". She is credited with roles in almost 30 movie and TV productions, including a role in director Steven Spielberg's The Colour Purple that earned her an Oscar nomination for best supporting actress.

Singer and producer Brad Walsh wrote: "She is quite literally the Antitrump".

Despite Winfrey's denials, she tweeted in September a New York Post editorial that trumpeted her as the Democrats' best hope of beating Trump in 2020 with the message: "Thanks for your VOTE of confidence!"
