Oprah Winfrey reminds us why she is Queen. She has become the first black woman to have been given the Cecil B. DeMille Award. Accepting an honorary Globe, told girls watching the ceremony that a ‘new day is on the horizon’where no one will be the victim of sexual harassment and assault. ‘When that new day finally dawns it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men fighting hard to make sure they become the leaders to take us to the time where nobody has to say ‘me too’ again,” she said, to a standing ovation. Winfrey praised icons Rosa Parks and Recy Taylor, who recently died, and their fight for justice after Ms Taylor was gang-raped by six white men.

Of Taylor, Winfrey said: ‘She lived, as we all have lived, too many years in a culture broken brutally by powerful men. ‘For too long women have not been heard or believed if they spoke their truth to the power of those men – but their time is up.’
