       2018 Golden Globes Everything you need to know

Host Seth Meyers kicked off the 75th annual Golden Globes on Sunday night by addressing the elephant in the room: sexual harassment scandals in Hollywood.

"We're all here tonight courtesy of the Hollywood Foreign Press".

Ahead of the night, the "Late Night" host told The Hollywood Reporter that he wouldn't be mentioning Donald Trump.

The opening monologue at the Golden Globes can often be more interesting and entertaining than the awards themselves. "Harvey Weinstein isn't here tonight because I've heard he's insane and hard to work with".

However, joke participant Amy Poehler made it obvious that she didn't need any help with hers. "There's a new era underway and I can tell, because it's been years since a white male has been this nervous".

At an awards show that saw red carpet protests and social activism aimed at gender and racial equality, Meyers took aim at the male stars in the room.

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.

Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal, FA Cup
A big performance against the visiting Gunners could only enhance his reputation as a prospect to watch for the future. The Reds have virtually a full strength squad available although there could still be selection dilemmas for Brazil.

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. "For example, I was happy to hear they're going to do another season of "House of Cards".is Christopher Plummer available for that, too?"

'It's 2018: Marijuana is legal and sexual harassment finally isn't, ' the host added, to applause.

After Page Six exclusively reported that Hollywood was freaking out over alleged sightings of Harvey Weinstein in LA leading up to the Golden Globes - which his reps have denied - the rumors nevertheless persisted.

"- said Kevin Spacey", Eichner interrupted, "'you lost me at 'of age'". "It's a gay coming-of-age film". Hong Chau of Downsizing then joked, "But those numbers may be off since a white man did the math". Meanwhile, Bert and Ernie have been doing a parody of Call Me By Your Name for years. "WHY?" and also, "I forgot to say "alleged". because i know better".

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. "Hollywood Foreign Press. The only name that would make him angrier would be the Hillary Mexico Salad Association".

Meyers then brought up the names of some of Hollywood's most influential men, all of whom have been embroiled in allegations of sexual misconduct over the past few months. "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.
