WASHINGTON ― Sunday night's Golden Globe Awards was bound to feature political moments, with attendees turning the spotlight to sexual harassment and gender inequality in the workplace, both in society at large and within their own industry.
The film from Twenty-First Century Inc's Fox Searchlight, won four awards including acting wins for its star Frances McDormand and supporting actor Sam Rockwell, and a screenplay win for its writer-director, Martin McDonagh.
"I think lessons we all learned from watching Hillary's run, and how her ambition was unfavourably and unfairly viewed, coupled with Oprah's existing popularity, could give Oprah a strong start", Palmieri said. "I'm glad her voice is leading us in America".
Last night, Oprah was given the Cecil B. DeMille award for "best outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment", making her the first Black female recipient of the award. Wow, the power of women.
Most powerfully, she told the story of Recy Taylor, an African-American woman who in 1944 was gang-raped as she walked home from church.
"She lived, as we all have lived, too many years in a culture broken by brutally powerful men", Winfrey said. "We are the stories in print and we are writing the stories ourselves".
Greta Gerwig's mother-daughter tale "Lady Bird" won best picture, comedy or musical, and best actress for Saoirse Ronan.
Guillermo del Toro won for The Shape Of Water which, however, lost out to Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri for best movie. The emotional Mexican-born filmmaker wiped back tears and managed to quiet the music that urged him off.

Meher Tatna, the president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), announced that the group would donate $1 million each to the Committee to Protect Journalists and the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists.
Emma's aim was to bring awareness to a cause she finds worthy during a time when hundreds of thousands of people are watching.
Her comments were met with a standing ovation in Hollywood and were the talk of Twitter. "We feel emboldened in this particular moment", Streep said, "to stand together in a thick black line dividing then from now".
"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 leaders that take us to the time where nobody has to say "me too" again", Winfrey said, referring to the social media #MeToo movement raising awareness about sexual harassment.
Laura Dern, Best Supporting Actress victor for HBO's "Big Little Lies", said: "Many of us were taught not to tattle".
The movie, about a mother who campaigns to pressure local authorities to solve the rape and murder of her daughter, was already a likely Oscar nominee but presumably had its status bolstered, as academy voters fill out their ballots this week in advance of the January 23 announcement.
"For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dared to speak their truth to the power of those men".
Cristina Ehrlich, another stylist to the stars, is also a supporter of the Time's Up movement, sharing a photo of a showroom filled with black gowns, tagging actresses Alison Brie, Laura Dern, Penelope Cruz and Yvonne Strahovski. He thanked the show's creator, Dan Fogelman, for writing a role "for a Black man that can only be played by a black man".
Though the atmosphere was still buoyant and positive, the usually superficial red carpet had unusual exchanges.
