Seth Meyers Nailed His Golden Globes Monologue

Oprah Winfrey's emotional Golden Globes speech sparks talk of 2020 presidential run

Seth Meyers came out swinging against Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey in a blistering opening monologue at the Golden Globes. and he didn't pull any punches. "It'll sound like that", Seth Meyers said, reported news agency PTI.

Before the show, he told Variety that he'd focusing more on Hollywood on Globes night, and said that he'd try to tread lightly and try to strike the right balance between amusing and respectful in terms of the gravity of the sexual harassment epidemic.

Meyers' words are especially pointed given the often loose, celebratory style of seasonal awards shows and how hosts can often whiff when attempting to strike at the establishment.

"It's 2018, marijuana is finally allowed and sexual harassment finally isn't", he said, adding that 2017 was the "year of big little lies and get out - and the television series "Big Little Lies" and the movie 'Get Out'".

Meyers then took aim at Golden Globe and Oscar victor Spacey.

Supreme Court modifies 2016 order, says National Anthem not mandatory in theatres
While few theatre owners say they will discontinue playing national anthem, others say they will play national song Vande Mataram. The bench had further stated that an Indian doesn't need to wear his patriotism on his sleeves.

Later, Meyers confronted "the elephant not in the room", aka accused sexual predator and former producer Harvey Weinstein. "Good evening ladies and remaining gentlemen", the host said, opening the night. "When I first heard about a film where a woman falls in love with a ugly monster, I thought it was a Woody Allen movie", Meyers said, referring to Guillermo del Toro's best picture nominee The Shape of Water. "There's a new era underway and I can tell because it's been years since a white man was this nervous in Hollywood", he was quoted as saying. Hey, remember when [Seth Rogen] was the guy making trouble with North Korea? 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'.

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.

"I hope he can do a Southern accent, because Kevin Spacey sure couldn't" Meyers continued, referring to Spacey's nefarious South Carolinian character of President Frank Underwood on House of Cards as more groans came from the crowd and the camera panned to show a chuckling Plummer. Hong Chau of Downsizing then joked, "But those numbers may be off since a white man did the math".

"Billy Eichner, who is openly gay, got the privilege of wrapping this joke: "'Call Me By Your Name" is nominated for Best Motion Picture.

In a post-Harvey Weinstein world, you can't talk about Hollywood without bringing up the rampant disparity between men in powerful positions and the women and men they've abused. "A string of three words that could not have been better created to infuriate our president". Quoth Meyers: "The only name that could make him angrier is the Hillary Mexico Salad Association".
