Golden Globes Meet #MeToo But There Were No Profiles in Courage

  • Golden Globes blackout

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". "Harvey Weinstein isn't here tonight because, well, I've heard rumors that he's insane and hard to work with". Host Seth Meyers said "Hollywood Foreign Press" sounds like three words created to infuriate Donald Trump.

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

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.

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".

Meyers equally dealt out scathing comments to Kevin Spacey and Woody Allen, both embroiled in their own sexual harassment scandals.

Meyers took aim squarely at the culture of sexism and misogyny in Hollywood that allowed abusers like Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Louis C.K., and dozens more to continue harassing and yet gain power, often unabatedly, for decades.

Well, I think it's time to address the elephant not in the room.

Host Seth Meyers took the stage and began by greeting the crowd as "Ladies and remaining gentlemen".

As the gathered stars groaned, he added: 'It will sound like that'. "If it's any consolation, I'm not even the most powerful Seth in the room tonight", he said as the camera cut to Seth Rogen.

"It's been years since a white man has been this nervous in Hollywood", he continued. 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. But those numbers might be off since a white person did the math.

He joked that producers asked a woman to host the show."They really did. They said 'hey, how would you like to come and be judged by some of the most powerful people in Hollywood, and women were like 'well, where is it?' They said it's at a hotel, and long story short, I'm your host tonight".

"Call Me By Your Name is nominated for Best Motion Picture, said Meyers". Meyers is a pro POTUS roaster, so his latest crop of jokes - calling the Hollywood Foreign Press "a string of three words that could not have been better created to infuriate our president" - were par for the (golf) course. Quoth Meyers: "The only name that could make him angrier is the Hillary Mexico Salad Association".
