Update 10:25 a.m. Jan. 8: Two friends, who were not identified, told CNN on Monday that Oprah Winfrey is "actively thinking" about running for president.

Friends have been urging her to run for office for months, according to the news station. A friend emphasized Monday to CNN that “Winfrey has not made up her mind about running.”

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

"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.
