Golden Globes 2018: Seth Meyers' Weinstein And Spacey Jokes

Golden Globes 2018: Seth Meyers' Weinstein And Spacey Jokes

In the wake of the #MeToo and #TimesUp initiative, Late Night's Seth Meyers' opening monologue for the 75th Golden Globe Awards was bound to be particularly tricky.

"Harvey Weinstein isn't here tonight because, well, I've heard rumors that he's insane and hard to work with", Meyers said (at the 3:08 mark below).

Seth Meyers hosted the 75th annual Golden Globes on Sunday night, and he didn't hold back on slamming famous men accused of abuse. Meyers previously hosted the 66th Emmy Awards in 2015.

Overall, it was as successful an opening monologue as could be hoped for in an incredibly fraught broadcast; Meyers also became noticeably more comfortable alongside the audience. How would he toe the line between entertaining the room and making light of the horrific systemic sexism that came to light in the fall of 2017, when allegations of sexual harassment and assault broke against Harvey Weinstein - and then, one after another, many other male Hollywood titans?

Moving away from the Weinstein scandal, Meyers also found time to make another dig at President Donald Trump.

Klopp said: "We have never been in a better position in recent times, as a club, to react in the right way". Jardim has claimed that many things could happen in January and has kept the door open for Lemar sale.

"It seems like this moment should be a moment of optimism", Meyers told The New York Times in an interview ahead of the Globes.

Meyers said Weinstein would have his comeback to Hollywood "in 20 years when he's the first person ever booed during the In Memoriam".

"Good evening ladies and remaining gentleman", Meyers said to open the show. "There's a new era underway and I can tell, because it's been years since a white male has been this nervous". Just an incredibly handsome film, but I have to admit, when I first heard about a film where a naïve young woman falls in love with a disgusting sea monster, I thought, 'Oh man, not another Woody Allen movie'. "Remember when he was the one causing trouble with North Korea?" Meyers suggested that Spacey's replacement in All the Money in the World, Christopher Plummer, also replace Spacey in the Netflix series House of Cards.

The most surprising barb from Meyers was directed toward Woody Allen, whose past behavior Hollywood stars, even those vocal about believing women victims, are infamously reticent to comment on.

"- said Kevin Spacey", Eichner interrupted, "'you lost me at 'of age'". Hong Chau of Downsizing then joked, "But those numbers may be off since a white man did the math". "They tried to get a woman to host the show which will be judged by some of the most powerful men in Hollywood and they were like 'hmm, well where is it?' They said it's in a hotel and long story short, I'm your host tonight", he added. Said one source, "There's a rumor that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is having Harvey come to apologize".
