After delivering an empowering rallying call for a “new day” for women at Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards, Oprah Winfrey said she has no plans to run for chairwoman, but that it is something she’d consider.
Social media lit up with calls for the media mogul to run for chairman following her moving speech, which she devoted after becoming the first black woman to win the Cecil B. DeMille Award. When the Los Angeles Timesasked if she’d think about a 2020 bid, Winfrey slyly answered, “OK.”
But she also told Bloomberg while backstage at the ceremony that she is not actively seeking a campaign.
When asked if she had plans to run, Winfrey replied that, “I don’t — I don’t.”
