Seth Meyers tackles Trump in Golden Globes speech focused on sexual harassment

Golden Globes blackout

His first joke is about marijuana (it's legal) and sexual harassment (not legal).

On the small-screen, HBO's "Big Little Lies" leads with six nominations, followed by FX's "Feud: Bette and Joan", with four, and "The Handmaid's Tale", "Fargo", and "This Is Us" all picking up three nods apiece.

The tone he set has stayed ever since - opening with a cutting monologue about Hollywood, often mocking numerous stars present.

This year's show marked the Late Night host's first stint as host of the Globes, following fellow NBC late-night funnyman Jimmy Fallon's turn last year. "Good evening ladies and remaining gentlemen", the host said, opening the night.

"They tried to get a woman to host the show which will be judged by some of the most powerful men in Hollywood and they were like hmm, well where is it? They said, 'Hey, how'd you like to come and be judged by some of the most powerful people in Hollywood?' And they said, 'Hm, where is it?' And they said, 'It's at a hotel.' Long story short, I'm your host tonight".

The Globes had always been the stomping grounds of disgraced mogul Harvey Weinstein, whose downfall precipitated allegations against James Toback, Kevin Spacey and many others. She told E!: "I think people are aware now of a power imbalance and that is something that leads to abuse. Remember that? Simpler times".

He spent three lunar nights on the surface and drove more than 25km in a lunar rover. Young is said to have died in his Houston home following complications of pneumonia.

He also took several swipes at Harvey Weinstein, referring to the embattled producer as "the elephant not in the room" and saying that Weinstein will "be back in 20 years when he's the first person booed in the In Memoriam".

At 6 p.m., E! airs its usual "Live From the Red Carpet: The Golden Globes", while the Hollywood Foreign Press Association red carpet feed can be streamed on Facebook.

"Harvey Weinstein isn't here tonight, because well, I've heard rumours that he's insane and hard to work with", comedian Meyers said. I was happy to hear they're going to do another season of House of Cards. I hope he can do a Southern accent. cuz Kevin Spacey sure couldn't.

Scott was also nominated for best director and Michelle Williams for best actress, after the HFPA were shown a rough cut of the Spacey-free film. "And some have said that night convinced him to run", Meyers said at another point during his monologue.

Meyers wrapped up his monologue with a thank you to the women in the audience: "I look forward to whatever you'll be leading us into next".

"Is that too mean?" he questioned, pausing meaningfully before adding: "... to Kevin Spacey?".
