Oprah Winfrey Steps Out For Critics’ Choice Awards

[imagebrowser id=1374] OPRAH Winfrey isn’t going to let a little Oscar snub get her down!

The media mogul and actress’ critically-acclaimed movie, Lee DanielsThe Butler, failed to score a single nomination at the upcoming Academy Awards.

But Oprah threw on her emerald green glad rags and hit up the 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards last night.

Oprah was nominated for Best Supporting Actress, though she sadly missed out to 12 Years A Slave star Lupita Nyong’o.

Childless Winfrey recently insisted she’s content with the fact that her “eggs are dying on the shelf”.

“If I had kids, my kids would hate me,” she said.

“They would have ended up on the equivalent of the Oprah show talking about me; because something [in my life] would have had to suffer and it would’ve probably been them.”

Winfrey — who, at 14 gave birth to a baby who only lived for a number of weeks — said her attitude towards having more children has essentially been the same since her childhood best friend Gayle King, who’s still her best friend today, had very different hopes and dreams.

“Gayle [now a mother of two] was the kind of kid who, in seventh grade home ec class, was writing down her name and the names of her children,” Winfrey explained.

“While she was having those kind of daydreams, I was having daydreams about how I could be Martin Luther King.”
