If you haven’t seen Oprah Winfrey’s Golden Globes speech yet, what are you waiting for exactly?

Winfrey became the first black woman ever to receive the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award in its 66-year history tonight (Jan. 7). Honored for her groundbreaking career across television and film, Winfrey used the Globes platform to deliver a stirring speech about gender and racial inequality in the midst of Hollywood’s ongoing crisis over sexual harassment.

The speech, easily the highlight of the show that made the movies themselves seem incidental by comparison, prompted many on social media to declare Winfrey the next president of the United States—a prospect political pundits have already taken seriously.

Several news organizations transcribed the speech, but an official transcript hasn’t yet been released. Watch all eight glorious minutes of Winfrey’s speech here:
