A video of a past interview with Trump praising Winfrey has begun recirculating, showing the now-president revealing she'd be his top pick to be vice president. "And I just think it's very interesting the timing of what is going on in the country, it's the time".

While getting ready to walk the red carpet, America Ferrara also posted a video to Instagram to explain why she wore black, saying, "I believe that every woman, everywhere has a voice, has power and deserves to live with safety and with dignity".

The 2018 Golden Globe Awards were historical for African-Americans who have had less representation in several American film and television industry honours in decades.

A theme I hope follows into this new year. King suggested, however, that the actress was "intrigued" by the idea of running.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders was also drawn into the speculation on January 9 about a potential Winfrey candidacy.

Winfrey didn't mention Trump by name during her speech, but she did express her admiration of women who have spoken out against men who've abused and harassed them. The host of the Golden Globes, late-night comedian Seth Meyers, jokingly urged Winfrey to run in his opening monologue, noting that President Donald Trump had reportedly chose to make his bid for the office after he was the butt of Meyers's jokes at the White House Correspondents Dinner in 2011. "Jokes about how he was unqualified to be president". "Is she a successful individual?" Donald said. "She's great, she's talented, she's a friend of mine, she's a good person".

While the 63-year-old media mogul told Bloomberg News backstage that she has no plans to run, an anonymous report from CNN that she is "actively thinking" about a bid fanned the flames on Monday.

Winfrey, who along with most of the show's other attendees donned a black gown to show support for victims of sexual misconduct, was the first black woman to receive the annual Cecil B De Mille award, joining the likes of Meryl Streep, Steven Spielberg, Barbra Streisand and Sophia Loren.

"Let's all come together, women & men, & say #TIMESUP #UNITED", she said in a reference to the campaign to end sexual harassment.
