An interesting phenomenon unfolded the night of the 75th Golden Globes. This award ceremony, which honored 2017 film and television, aired January 7, 2018, hosted by Seth Meyers, and called attention to #MeToo and #TimesUp movements. Both #MeToo and #TimesUp, movements are in response to the what has been called the ‘Weinstein Effect’ and demonstrate the pervasiveness of sexual assault and harassment in the workplace. The evening was peppered with references to Hollywood’s complicity in the unchecked behavior of many Hollywood elite. While some uninformed were asking why is everyone wearing black? It was clearly a stage for many celebrities to raise awareness about sexual harassment and stand in solidarity with those whose voices were silenced by the Hollywood machine. Oprah Winfrey elevated the conversation in her speech as the recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award. She issued a call to women and girls everywhere with these words, “I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon!” Audiences raved over her speech, sparking presidential speculation, will Oprah run for President in 2020?
