Oprah
No matter what year it is, Oprah remains a constant influence. Everything she touches turns to gold and she's basically been put on the planet to make everyone's lives better. But what really stuck out this year, to get Oprah an extra gold star, was her campaigning for Democratic candidates, most notably Stacey Abrams. Oprah was hand-on during the whole process and, although Abrams lost, as I mentioned, it's nice to know that we can count on Oprah to be there the next time around... because Abrams isn't going anywhere.
