OPRAH STOLE THE SHOW AT THE 2018 GOLDEN GLOBES Oprah called for a day when no one has to say “me too” in a speech that had the internet clamoring for her to run for president. Her longtime partner Stedman Graham fueled the 2020 rumors by saying she’d “absolutely do it” if the interest is there. While the #TimesUp movement dominated the night, many Hollywood men were silent on the issue. Check out all the looks from the fashion blackout as Hollywood elected to wear black to show solidarity with the victims of abuse and sexual harassment. Natalie Portman dragged the announcement of the Best Director category for being all-male. Sterling K. Brown became the first black man to take home best actor in a TV drama, and his speech is one to watch. The New York Times sexual harassment ad elicited a wide range of reactions. And don’t forget to look at the list of all the winners ― “Big Little Lies,” “Lady Bird” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” won big. [HuffPost] [Tweet | Share on Facebook]
