It's not the hair looks, makeup or the fashion that moved us watching the Golden Globes; it was one speech we will always remember. Editor Trudi Brewer salutes Oprah Winfrey at Hollywoods most prestigious red carpet event.
If you watched the annual 2018 Golden Globes awards that honour the best American film and television of 2017, you would have been moved by one speech - which hopefully will change the way you think. This year the spotlight was on the recent sexual abuse scandal, that is rife in Hollywood right now, and well beyond. We felt compelled to share the star of the show, which was undoubtedly Oprah Winfrey who in her acceptance speech for the Cecil B DeMille lifetime achievement award – of which she was the first black woman ever to win - stole the show with these words. “I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon". A household name as a talk show host, actress and producer she went on to say this day would be because of “a lot of magnificent women” and “some pretty phenomenal men”, who would take us “to the time when nobody ever has to say ‘Me Too’ again."
Thank you Oprah, for shining a light on what is wrong, for speaking out, encouraging us all to 'Speak our truth', giving women across the globe a voice to do the same - we salute you.
If you didn't catch Winfrey's speech here it is.
