Last night's Golden Globes was no ordinary ceremony: with all the turmoil currently (thankfully!) shaking Hollywood regarding sex scandals and other types of abuse perpetrated within the industry which are only now beginning to surface, it was only inevitable that each and every moment was embodied by combative spirit and used to praise the resistance.

Oprah Winfrey was this year's recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award, delivering a powerful speech in which she addressed the long-time coming discussions about the abuse women have been a part of in the film industry in particular and society in general: "It is not lost on me that at this moment, there are some little girls watching as I become the first black woman to be given this same award" she said, comparing it to the moment she saw Sidney Poitier winning the Academy Award for Best Actor in 1964, thus becoming the first black man to win it.

She also talked about Recy Taylor, an Alabama woman who in 1944 was kidnapped and raped by six men -- who were never indicted: "For too long, women have not been heard or believed, if they dared to speak their truth to the power of those men," she added. "But their time is up. Their time is up."
