After the speech that received not one, not two, but three standing ovations, the Internet has called for Oprah to run for President.
Oprah became the first black woman to received the Cecil B DeMille Award for outstanding contribution.
During her speech, Oprah revealed she wanted to 'express gratitude to all the women who have endured years of abuse and assault because they, like my mother, had children to feed, and bills to pay and dreams to pursue.'
She added that she had been 'inspired' by 'all the women who have felt strong enough and empowered enough to speak up and share their personal stories.'
Oprah urged women worldwide to believe that 'a new day is on the horizon.'
Now, the Internet is calling for Oprah to run for the presidency. With Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson saying he was 'seriously considering' running before Christmas, and a following behind Oprah already, this could make for one interesting campaign in 2020 should she decide to run, too!
