Hollywood stars got political at the half-woke Golden Globes’ red carpet, donning black ensembles in support of anti-sexual harassment campaigns, #TimesUp and #MeToo. Comedian, political commentator and television host, Seth Meyers made his debut as host and did a pretty damn good job at it.
He handled the tough task like a pro and opened the conversation about the sexual misconduct scandals that have been rolling out of the Hollywood arena.
Meyers’ opening monologue set the tone for the entire evening, with his brilliant jabs at Harvey Weistein — whose sexual harassment investigations precipitated allegations against Kevin Spacey, Woody Alan, Ed Westwick and a plethora of ‘powerful white men’ in the entertainment industry.
‘Good evening, ladies and remaining gentlemen. I’m Seth Meyers, and I’ll be your host tonight. Welcome to the 75th annual Golden Globes. And Happy New Year, Hollywood! It’s 2018, marijuana is finally allowed and sexual harassment finally isn’t.’
It would have been disappointing if he didn’t fall in line and do the right thing. All this has been long time coming but we will accept that it is a good start.
Social media also had its say about his monologue.
“Good morning ladies and remaining gentlemen. It’s 2018 and marijuana is finally allowed and sexual harassment finally isn’t.”
