Oprah Winfrey gave one of the most iconic speeches of all time at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards when she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

The award was given by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for incredible contributions to the entertainment industry.

Actress Reese Witherspoon presented the 63-year-old actress and media mogul with the honour saying Winfrey’s hugs “the greatest thing ever.”
