Golden Globes 2018: Seth Meyers' Weinstein And Spacey Jokes

Eva Longoria says today's black at the Golden Globes is a

Seth Meyers took the brainy incredulity that's made Late Night vital viewing to his Golden Globe Awards monologue Sunday night.

"Harvey Weinstein isn't here tonight because, well, I heard rumors that he's insane and hard to work with", Seth, who is hosting the show, told the crowd during his opening monologue.

Meyers' friend Amy Poehler even got in on the mix, taking over a bit in which he would say the setup of a joke and a woman in the audience would do the punch line.

With sexual-misconduct allegations hovering over Hollywood for months, and nearly everyone dressed in black to support the Time's Up initiative opposing sexual harassment, the late-night host addressed the elephant in the room right when he came onstage Sunday night.

But he even called himself out for hosting and put hosts of future shows like the Oscars on notice by comparing himself to the "first dog they shot into outer-space".

Actresses are wearing black to the Golden Globes to protest sexual harassment in Hollywood-an issue that's been brought to light in recent months as dozens of women came forward to report the sexual misconduct of numerous male directors and actors.

Meyers took aim squarely at the culture of sexism and misogyny in Hollywood that allowed abusers like Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Louis C.K., and dozens more to continue harassing and yet gain power, often unabatedly, for decades. "Simpler times." The room erupted at that one.

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!" "Remember when he was the one causing trouble with North Korea?" Is Christopher Plummer available for that, too?

And Late Night host Seth Meyers, who emceed the event, didn't let the opportunity to poke holes at the showbiz elite pass him by.

As the gathered stars groaned, he added: 'It will sound like that'. "I hope he can do a Southern accent because Kevin Spacey sure couldn't". Hong Chau of Downsizing then joked, "But those numbers may be off since a white man did the math".

Following these claims and reports, Weinstein was sacked from the company that bears his name, banned from the Producer's Guild of America and expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. "They said, 'Hey, how would you like like to come and be judged by some of the most powerful people in Hollywood, ' and women were like, 'Hhmmm, well where is it?' and they said, 'It's in a hotel-' and long story short, I'm your host tonight".
