Oprah Winfrey accepted her Cecil B. DeMille Award on Sunday night at the Golden Globes with a message to the young girls watching: “A new day is on the horizon.”
The Cecil B. DeMille Award is given “to a talented individual who has made an incredible impact on the world of entertainment,” according to the Hollywood Foreign Press. Past honorees include Sidney Poitier, Barbra Streisand, Steven Spielberg, and George Clooney.
The media mogul’s message came during a Golden Globes ceremony notable for being the first major award show since Hollywood first began addressing rampant sexual harassment against women in the entertainment industry and beyond.
Winfrey made the same point in her speech, saying sexual harassment “transcends any culture, geography, race, religion, politics or work place.” Watch Her Speech Below;
