In her speech, Oprah thanked victims of sexual assault for speaking out and expressed gratitude to the journalists who reported on such stories.

Besides wearing black, these celebrities also spoke about why they wore black and encouraged others to do the same, even though they’re not attending the red carpet.

Will & Grace star Debra Messing came to tell it as it is on the red carpet at the 75th Golden Globes.
