The cameras loved Oprah Winfrey and her longtime partner Stedman Graham at the 75th Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night (Januray 7). Caught together arm-in-arm, all eyes were on them during one of Hollywood’s biggest nights and it was only the beginning of a memorable evening.
After making history as the first African American woman to receive the Cecile B. DeMille award alongside Sterling K. Brown who became the first Black actor to take the category for best performance, she delivered a rousing speech that not only inspired but encouraged, enlightened and was deemed as presidential by many. Graham shared with the LA Times that a political run could be in the future of the media mogul.
“It’s up to the people,” he told the newspaper. “She would absolutely do it.”
During her speech, Winfrey shared that “a new horizon is on the way,” and celebrities quickly went to Twitter to share their support of this presidential possibility.
She’s running. A new day is on the way.

NBC, of course, received some backlash from the Oprah love and Donald Trump Jr. wasn’t feeling too good about all this either, who is oblivious to the national outrage created by his father.
In case anyone had any doubts about where the media stands this should take care of it. The bias against @realDonaldTrump is now so obvious they have simply given up hiding it.
Can you trust anything they say at this point?
