The star studded evening saw amazing winners and one of the highlights was Oprah Winfrey receiving the Cecil B. DeMille award for lifetime achievement. Winfrey took the stage with the award in hand and gave a rousing speech. Oprah explained that “speaking your truth is the most powerful tool you all have.”
Oprah said, “We have all lived too many years in a culture broken by brutally powerful men and for too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dared to speak the truth to the power of those men. But their time is up. Their time is up.”
