Tinseltown outdid itself in the hypocrisy department at the 2018 Golden Globes.
Many hailed the mighty Oprah Winfrey’s speech about bringing an end to harassment and inequality but would it have been too much for her to utter the name “Harvey Weinstein” even at this late juncture?
“Queen Oprah” as the New York Times likes to call her, or future President Winfrey as NBC News hails her, made an acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award in which she said that the women of Hollywood became the story of 2017.
The star-studded trained seals in the crowd gave Oprah a standing O on her profound statements but we all know that for decades, Hollywood was rife with casting couch abuse, and no one dared to rock the boat.
For all this talk of bravery and stepping forward to act as agents of change, where was Winfrey’s platform of shows covering issues like sexual harassment in Hollywood?
Instead, there was only radio silence, and plenty of pics of Oprah from the not-so-good-ol’ days dining with, hugging and even kissing Weinstein.
Speaking out against abuse has emerged as the “in” thing to do in Tinseltown, and so Oprah swept in clad in a black designer dress, to deliver a bunch of vapid and vacuous nuggets.
Give me a break already.
