Seth Meyers Delivers Biting Jokes About Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein in Golden Globes Monologue


It was not your typical Golden Globes ceremony this year, and that was not lost on host Seth Meyers as he delivered his opening monologue.

"Good evening, ladies, and remaining gentlemen," the 44-year-old host began his remarks. "It's 2018, marijuana is finally allowed and sexual harassment finally isn't."

"For the male nominees tonight, this will be the first time it won't be terrifying to hear your name read out loud," he continued.

Meyers did not hesitate to name specific men at the center of the controversy of sexual misconduct in Hollywood, including Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey.

"Harvey Weinstein isn't here tonight," Meyers said. "Don't worry, he'll be back in 20 years when he becomes the first person ever booed during the 'In Memoriam.'"

Ahead of the ceremony, Meyers spoke to ET about how the writers planned to address the Time's Up initiative and the statement happening on the red carpet.

"We're just having a constant discussion about it,"  he shared, "Also, [we will be] trying to remember that even though it was a really difficult year, people did great work ... Through that difficulty, you want to make sure that you also celebrate that as well."

Meyers also noted the help of his wife, human rights attorney Alexi Ashe.

"My wife is an incredible woman," he shared. "My wife works a lot with victims of sexual violence, so I'm in a unique position to talk to somebody about everything that's happened this year and hopefully, you know, that will help us get the tone right."
