Seth Meyers Jokes About Harvey Weinstein's Death In Golden Globes Opening Monologue

Actresses opted to wear black gowns in solidarity with victims of abuse

Late-night TV show host Seth Meyers on Sunday wasted little time tackling the sexual harassment scandals that rocked Hollywood a year ago, taking aim at several disgraced notable people during his opening monologue at the 75th annual Golden Globes awards show in Beverly Hills, Calif.

"I don't get the conga line started", Meyers told The New York Times.

"Ladies and remaining gentlemen", he said, right off the bat. Hosting the Golden Globes this year was no easy task with the weight of the sexual harassment and assault allegations that have swept through Hollywood in recent months. "It's 2018 - marijuana is finally allowed and sexual harassment finally isn't".

Meyers, of course, addressed the "elephant not in the room" Harvey Weinstein.

Saying there is a "new era underway", Meyers admitted "It's been years since a white man was this nervous in Hollywood", of himself.

Good thing Meyers has the smarts to deal with current events in a way that never seemed too inappropriate. Meyers knew that Harvey Weinstein and the other scandals would have to be acknowledged.

Perhaps the most seemingly contentious material Meyers had was about Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey, two of the most prominent names fallen from favor after allegations of sexual misconduct. "He'll be back in 20 years when he becomes the first person ever booed during the In Memoriam".

"I was happy to hear they're going to do another season of House Of Cards - is Christopher Plummer available for that too?", said Meyers referencing Plummer replacing Spacey's previously filmed part in the film, All The Money In The World. "I hope he can do a southern accent because Kevin Spacey sure couldn't". Oh, was that too mean? "They said, 'How'd you like to come and be judged by some of the most most powerful people in Hollywood?' And women were, like 'Hmmm". I'm a woman in Hollywood, Seth.

"At one point, Meyers pointed to actor Seth Rogen who once starred in the film "The Interview" where he played a TV host looking to report on North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.":Remember when he was the guy who was making trouble with North Korea?"

In 2017, Golden Globes presenters and winners got nearly as many laughs as host Jimmy Fallon - mostly at the expense of President-elect Donald Trump.

Hoping to poke that wound, Meyers had more: "We're here courtesy of the Hollywood Foreign Press - a string of three world that could not have been better created to infuriate our president", he snarked. "Foreign. Press. The only name that would make him angrier would be the 'Hillary Mexican Salad Association.'" Towards the end of his speech, Meyers gave a shout out to Oprah Winfrey and hinted that she should run for president in 2020.
