Why Are Actresses Wearing Black to the Golden Globes?

11 January, 2018, 09:00 | Author: Christina Harvey

"A lot of people thought it would be more appropriate for a woman to host tonight's show, and they might be right, but if it makes you feel any better I have absolutely no power in Hollywood", Meyers said, as the camera panned to Seth Rogen in the audience. That's why Meyers recruited Poehler along with Jessica Chastain, Billy Eichner, Issa Rae, and Hong Chau for a special Globes edition of "Jokes Seth Can't Tell" - including a great Call Me By Your Name punchline about, well, peaches, of course.

Here's how the NBC late-night comedian tackled the biggest issues of the 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".

The opening monologue at the Golden Globes can often be more interesting and entertaining than the awards themselves.

And while the topics of sexual harassment and gender inequality are serious, Meyers did his best to lighten the mood. However, with the arrival of the Time's Up and #MeToo campaigns in the recent past, the new New Year looks promising, said Seth Meyers. Of super-producer Harvey Weinstein, Meyers cracked, "He'll be back in 20 years when he becomes the first person ever booed in the in memoriam".

Some of the highlights included, as can be expected from the hold-nothing-back late-night host, major digs at numerous accused men in Hollywood.




"Good evening ladies and remaining gentleman", Meyers said to open the show. 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. "I hope he can do a Southern accent because Kevin Spacey sure couldn't".

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.

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. And they said, "It's at a hotel", and long story short, I'm your host tonight. "They tried to get a woman to host this show, they really did".

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.

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. "The only name that would make him angrier would be the 'Hillary Mexico Salad Associated'".
