    Original report: Would Oprah Winfrey ever run for president? It's a possibility, according to her partner, Stedman Graham.

    "It's up to the people," Graham, told the Los Angeles Times on Sunday. "She would absolutely do it."

    Graham's remarks came as Winfrey's fans flocked to social media to praise her Golden Globes speech.

    "I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon," Winfrey said as she became the first black woman to win the Cecil B. DeMille Award. "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. 

    Soon afterward, #Oprah2020 became a top trending topic on Twitter.

    But don't get too excited, fans. When a Bloomberg reporter asked Winfrey about the trending hashtag Sunday night, she denied that she plans to run.
