‘Nobody will ever have to say Me Too again’: Oprah reduces Golden Globes guests to tears with powerful speech praising the women AND men leading Tinseltown’s fightback from sex abuse scandals
Oprah Winfrey used her Golden Globe lifetime achievement speech to issue a rallying cry as she begged both men and women to do what they could to ensure no one ever has to utter the words ‘Me Too’ again.
The actress and businesswoman, who received a lengthy standing ovation as she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award at Sunday’s Globes ceremony, said she was honored to be the first black woman to receive the accolade.

The 63-year-old, who left the audience in tears, began her speech speaking about the feelings she had as a young girl watching Sidney Poitier win the best actor Academy Award in 1964.
‘It is not lost on me that, at this moment, there is some little girls watching as I become the first black woman to be given the same award,’ Oprah said. ‘It is an honor and it is a privilege to share the evening with all of them.’
