What made Oprah Winfrey’s iconic 2018 Golden Globes speech so rousing isn’t what you think.

“I must have been more nervous than I thought, because I’ve never had dry mouth before,” Winfrey, 64, told People in an interview released Friday. “In the middle of the speech I thought, ‘I can’t move my gums.’”

But it turns out Winfrey’s nervousness — and the subsequent dry mouth her jitters caused — actually improved the delivery of herCecil B. DeMille Award acceptance speech.

“I started to articulate because I was trying to get over my gums!” she said.

Winfrey’s speech, which touched on racial politics in Hollywood and the sexual misconduct scandals leading to the Time’s Up and #MeToo movements, was so powerful that it led to rumors of a presidential run — rumors that, much to the chagrin of fans everywhere, she has since repeatedly denied.
