Oprah Winfrey Reveals Why She Almost Didn't Give Her Golden Globes Speech

Oprah Winfrey almost wasn’t able to give her powerful speech at this year’s Golden Globes!

The television personality recently revealed that before she took the stage, she realized her mouth was incredibly dry.

“I must have been more nervous than I thought, because I’ve never had dry mouth before,” Oprah told People.

She added, “In the middle of the speech I thought, ‘I can’t move my gums.’ I started to articulate because I was trying to get over my gums.”

Despite the issue, Oprah‘s speech clearly made an impact and even began a movement to get her to run for president!
