Several events took place on the night of Sunday, January 7th at the 75th Golden Globe ceremony. The show was hosted by Seth Meyers whose opening monologue addressed many current issues in Hollywood, including commentary about the absence of  accused sexual assault perpetrator and former Hollywood mogul, Harvey Weinstein, and other prominent accused male actors.

The night was filled with moving and hopeful speeches that included references to the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements. Almost all who attended wore black in solidarity to support those individuals who have been assaulted or harassed and who have had to live with the effects in silence.

Oprah Winfrey received the Life Time Achievement Cecil B. DeMille Award and gave a rousing speech about her own experience and thanked the many brave women who have come forward with their stories. Winfrey stated, “And I’m especially proud and inspired by all the women who have felt strong enough and empowered enough to speak up and share their personal stories. Each of us in this room are celebrated because of the stories that we tell, and this year we became the story.  So I want tonight to express gratitude to all the women who have endured years of abuse and assault because they, like my mother, had children to feed and bills to pay and dreams to pursue.”

The #MeToo and the Time’s UP movements were not the only winners of the night. The TV series “Big Little Lies”, and the movie, “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri” went home with several awards. Many other shows and movies were awarded with Golden Globes.
