Golden Globes  YouTube

"Honestly, President Winfrey, it just rolls of the tongue", Zoe Kravitz of "Big Little Lies" told ABC News' Lara Spencer backstage at the awards show, standing with co-stars Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley.

"She lived, as we all have lived, too many years in a culture broken by brutally powerful men", Winfrey said.

"Switched back to the Golden Globes to watch Oprah get her award", MSNBC's Joy Reid tweeted.

"I am all about Oprah 2020", said another Golden Globes victor, Allison Janney. I just thought, oh, oh", she said in a December 2016 conversation with on Bloomberg's "The David Rubenstein Show: "Peer-to-Peer Conversations".

"However she moves forward in 2020, she's helping the universe as it is already", Brown told Spencer.

In January 2017, late night host Stephen Colbert asked Winfrey whether her friend, former first lady Michelle Obama, would run for political office.

Following the inspirational speech, "Oprah 2020" started trending on Twitter, as people wondered (and hoped) the star had plans on running for presidency in the next USA election.

Asked if his father thinks Walton should not be the Lakers' head coach, Lonzo Ball said: "That's just his opinion. Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle, who's also the head of the coaches association, was less than pleased.

"It's up to the people", Winfrey's longtime partner, Stedman Graham, later told The Los Angeles Times. "She would absolutely do it".

"It's clear that you don't need government experience to be elected president of the United States, right?" Trump has famously derided stories about him and entire news organizations as "fake news".

This is not the first time Winfrey has been mentioned in conjunction with a possible presidential ticket.

"Oprah cometh", tweeted actress Amber Tamblyn, while musician Pharrell Williams called her the greatest of all time. "I'd love to have Oprah", Trump said at the time.

And he added the pro-Hillary Clinton hashtag #ImWithHer.

Later in the ceremony, as she was accepting her award, Oprah brought the room to their feet as she spoke about the Me Too movement. "I trust her not to engage in daily Twitter screeds and insults; I trust that she will take the job seriously". "You do not have what it takes", Meyers said, while also proposing actor Tom Hanks as a vice presidential candidate.

Winfrey had barely finished calling for a "new day" following a sexual harassment watershed, before calls snowballed for one of America's most famous women, a self-made tycoon born into poverty, to run for the highest office in the free world.

"It was somewhere in Rosa Parks" heart nearly 11 years later when she made the decision to stay seated on that bus in Montgomery", Winfrey said.
