Sterling K. Brown and Aziz Ansari not only took home Golden Globes on Sunday night, they made history.

So is she running?

A March 2017 poll by Quinnipiac University that handed Trump a 41 percent job approval rating, said 52% of respondents had a favorable opinion of Winfrey.

Becoming the first black woman to accept the Cecil B. De Mille lifetime achievement award, her speech wove together gender, poverty and race. However Trump himself told Winfrey in 1988 that he too would likely not run for president and yet he now sits in the White House.

The touchstone of her speech was the #MeToo movement.

"I will never have to know the answer to that, because I will never run for public office", she said.

Many liberal-leaning celebrities and viewers certainly heard it that way.

It is in reference to a joke made during the monologue and not meant to be a political statement. She has denied plans to seek office, but a fiery speech during the Golden Globes Awards sparked more talk of a possible run.

In order to help reduce fuel consumption and vehicle emissions during city driving, auto Start-Stop technology is standard. With the Power Stroke 3.0 litre, the F-150 is expected to hit a targeted EPA-estimated 12.7 km/l (30 mpg) highway rating.

According to the LA Times, Oprah's long-time partner Stedman Graham said the TV doyenne could run for President.

"It's up to the people", Graham told the Los Angeles Times.

"It's the insatiable dedication to uncovering the absolute truth that keeps us from turning a blind eye to corruption and to injustice", she said.

And he added the pro-Hillary Clinton hashtag #ImWithHer.

With her vast audience and quickly relatable style, Winfrey has always been considered one of America's most influential celebrities.

"She's lost her mind now", Winfrey said.

Reese Witherspoon alluded to her friend's superstar status while introducing her at the Globes: "There's only one person whose name is a verb, an adjective, and a feeling".

In an interview with Winfrey on Bloomberg last March, interviewer David Rubenstein broached the possibility, saying "It's clear you don't need government experience to be elected president of the United States". "I am there for her".

Oil retreats after hitting 2015 highs
Heating oil futures slumped after the report, but slowly recovered, and were down 0.5 percent to $2.0711 per gallon. Bank Wealth Management, which oversees $142 billion in assets, said by telephone.

Winfrey laughed while the studio audience applauded.

"2020, I'm wondering if you've narrowed down your shortlist of VP candidates", co-anchor and best friend Gayle King joked.

She recently sold part of her stake in OWN but renewed her contract to remain CEO through 2025. "She's taking it seriously".

The political back-and-forth has already begun.

Memes also quickly appeared claiming NBC had endorsed a joint presidential ticket of Winfrey and disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein. Videos and transcripts of the speech were widely shared on social media on Monday morning.

"I want her to run for president", Streep told The Post. "I just think the world of her".

Earlier in the evening, Globes host Seth Meyers actually teed up the speculation.

In his opening monologue Meyers revealed he had once made a joke that Trump could never be US President, which led to The Donald deciding to run in the election.

'So if that's true, I just want to say - Oprah, you will never be President! "And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say "Me too" again".
