No One Knew How To Take Seth Meyers' Harvey Weinstein Joke

NATION-NOW     2018 Golden Globes How to watch and what you need to know     
       2018 Golden Globes Everything you need to know

In opening the 2018 Golden Globe awards, Seth Meyers wasted no time addressing the somber subject on everyone's minds. Because, well, I've heard rumors that he's insane and hard to work with.

Seth Meyers kicked off the 2018 Golden Globes by wading right into the controversies that have been swirling around the event for several weeks.

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".

"It will influence everything from Seth Meyers' monologue to impassioned acceptance speeches to the fashion".

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.

Turning his attention to Weinstein, Meyers said, "Time to address the elephant not in the room: Harvey Weinstein isn't in the room ... he'll be back in 20 years when he's the first person booed in the in memoriam". Just an incredibly lovely 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'.

"Good evening, ladies and remaining gentlemen", Meyers began.

He tried to soothe the audience by telling them, "If it's any consolation, I'm a man with absolutely no power in Hollywood". "Remember when he was the one making trouble with North Korea?" "They're going to do another season of House of Cards?".

About his rocket shot Johnson said: "I knew it was on a good line". "Hopefully I can keep playing good and maybe someday be No.1. He rebounded strongly with the monster drive at the 12th and padded his lead with three straight birdies at Nos.

Other benefits include unlimited local and STD calls, 100 SMS per day, and free subscription to Vodafone Play. The company announced that the users will get 50 per cent more data per month on the same prices as earlier.

Meyers then said Issa Rae, star and creator of Insecure, has three projects in development.

He also mocked Spacey's Southern accent in the show, adding.

Later, he upped the ante during a segment from "Late Night" he ported over where he gives the setup to a joke and then a minority gives the punchline, because it's just going to sound better coming from someone who isn't a straight, white male.

"Call Me By Your Name is nominated for Best Motion Picture, said Meyers".

He joked that producers asked a woman to host the show."They really did". "When I first heard about a film where a woman falls in love with a disgusting monster, I thought it was a Woody Allen movie", Meyers said, referring to Guillermo del Toro's best picture nominee The Shape of Water.

In his 10-minute plus spiel, Meyers took aim at Hollywood's powerful men and the sexual abuses many of them have been accused of.
