Seth Meyers Slams Weinstein and Spacey ... To Open Globes 2018

11 January 2018

Page Six previously reported that actress Rosanna Arquette, one of the many stars who have accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct and harassment, posted on Facebook: "It is Very odd, that Harvey Weinstein is at the very same hotel in Beverly Hills that the golden globe press is being done at".

Meyers ended the monologue with a bit from Late Night With Seth Meyers called "Jokes Seth Can't Tell", in which he set up a series of jokes for celebrities in the audience to deliver the punch lines.

Seth Meyers hosted the 75th annual Golden Globes on Sunday night, and he didn't hold back on slamming famous men accused of abuse.

Hosting the first awards show of 2018, Meyers had a daunting task ahead of him. But Meyers took the issue head-on and, following some opening remarks, smartly ceded the floor to women, people of color and queer people to make some of the jokes that he, as a straight white guy, couldn't really make. That business was handled right up front in the opening speech from Seth Meyers who spent much of his monologue addressing all the scandals that have engulfed the entertainment world of late. 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.

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". Meyers even urged her to run for president, which was met with the biggest round of applause of the night so far. Meyers described Call Me By Your Name as a coming-of-age story for a young, queer man. Billy Eichner then cracked that Kevin Spacey said, "You lost me when you said 'of age'".

Several loud groans were heard following that comment, to which Meyers wittily replied, "it'll sound like that" and the reactions swiftly changed to laughs. I was happy to hear they're going to do another season of House Of Cards. "I hope he can do a Southern accent because Kevin Spacey sure couldn't".

He also joked that he was chosen as the male host for the show because he's a "man with absolutely no power in Hollywood". "A string of three words that could not have been better created to infuriate our president. Hollywood Foreign Press. The only name that would make him angrier would be the Hillary Mexico Salad Association".

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.
