And almost every soul wore black in support of the Time's Up movement and as a statement against sexual misconduct in Hollywood. Steyer is a former hedge fund manager who has invested some of his wealth in an array of political causes, most notably fighting climate change. That job fell nearly entirely to women.
Oprah Winfrey invoked the civil rights movement and the suffering of countless ordinary women at the hands of male abusers as she used a rousing speech at the Golden Globes to issue a rallying call against injustice.
It was a night of unusually powerful speeches, whether long or short, that touched eloquently on the #MeToo moment.
If the speculation is wishful thinking, Winfrey's fame and wealth, extraordinary personal story overcoming poverty, child sexual abuse and pregnancy to build a $2.6 billion fortune and Oscar-nominated acting career, would stack up nicely in her favor.
And indeed, the 75th Golden Globe Awards, held Sunday night at the Beverly Hilton Hotel wasn't business as usual. Guillermo del Toro won the trophy in the Best Director category. Wolff said during an appearance on MSNBC's The Last Word. The Handmaid's Tale executive producer Bruce Miller referenced the topic of the show that gave him the award. One came from Laura Dern, who won supporting actress for "Big Little Lies", a TV series that, aptly, depicts not only sexual abuse, but a group of women who only fully discover their power when they unite.

"Look, it's ridiculous - and I get that", said Brad Anderson, Barack Obama's 2012 Iowa campaign director, who supports the idea of Winfrey running. "I have tears in my eyes and a smile on my face". "I've seen that come up quite a bit". On the Globes red carpet, actresses - many of whom brought leading activists with them as their dates - talked about their decision to wear black, the "Time's Up" initiative and the power of sisterhood.
