It’s been 30 years to the day since The Oprah Winfrey Show premiered and ever since this game-changing talk show first hit the airwaves, our lives have never been the same. Although the final episode aired five years ago, we still can’t forget some of our favorite moments, particularly Oprah’s insanely awesome giveaways.

From college scholarships to homes, and even trips to Disney World, getting to be in the audience on a giveaway show, particularly her annual “favorite things” episode was better than winning the lottery.

And never forget the time she gave cars away to her ENTIRE audience. The year was 2004, and it was the first episode of her “wildest dreams come true” season.

Oprah started out by saying ~one~ (HA! If only they knew) lucky person in the audience would be going home with a car that day.

Everyone in the audience was given a box thinking ONLY ONE PERSON would have a set of keys inside to the new car…

…and tension/anticipation/excitement was H-I-G-H.

After a dramatic drumroll, Oprah had everyone open their boxes and they collectively lost their shit when they realized EVERYONE GOT A FREAKIN’ CAR!!!!

And then we also got one of THE BEST MOMENTS on The Oprah Winfrey Show ever.

You can watch the entire reveal as well as Oprah’s commentary on this landmark episode in this great video below.
