A look at Oprah Winfrey's film and television roles.
Winfrey is a singular figure in both media business and American culture, parlaying her success in daytime TV as host of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” into an empire that includes cable channel OWN, which she co-owns with Discovery Inc.; the Harpo Productions banner; and O, the Oprah Winfrey Magazine, a partnership with Hearst. She is a 10 percent owner of (at $43 million) and celebrity spokeswoman for Weight Watchers. Winfrey began contributing to “60 Minutes” in 2017 and signed a multi-year content deal with Apple for its nascent video service. And still she acts, appearing in the OWN drama “Greenleaf,” the animated “A Wrinkle in Time” and 2014’s moving “Selma.” Notably, she’s playing Shirley MacLaine’s iconic Aurora Greenway in the upcoming “Terms of Endearment” remake.
