Why Are Actresses Wearing Black to the Golden Globes?


In opening the 2018 Golden Globe awards, Seth Meyers wasted no time addressing the somber subject on everyone's minds.

The Golden Globes are handed out by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

"Good evening ladies and remaining gentlemen", he said at the top, setting the tone for the evening. The audience laughed as Meyers referred to Plummer having replaced Spacey for his role as real-life oil tycoon J.P. Getty in Ridley Scott's drama All the Money in the World.

"Harvey Weinstein isn't here tonight because, well, I've heard rumors that he's insane and hard to work with", Meyers said (at the 3:08 mark below).

'It's been years that a white man in Hollywood was this nervous, ' he quipped. 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.

The most surprising barb from Meyers was directed toward Woody Allen, whose past behavior Hollywood stars, even those vocal about believing women victims, are infamously reticent to comment on.

With sexual-misconduct allegations hovering over Hollywood for months, and nearly everyone dressed in black to support the Time's Up initiative opposing sexual harassment, the late-night host addressed the elephant in the room right when he came onstage Sunday night. For example, I was happy to hear they're going to do another season of "House of Cards". I hope he can do a Southern accent, 'cause Kevin Spacey sure couldn't.

Taking aim at Spacey, who's been accused of by several men of sexual harassment or assault, Meyers enlisted actor Billy Eichner to finish his sentence (the same way he does on his NBC late-night show in a segment called "Jokes Seth Can't Tell").

From his very first introduction, Meyers immediately addressed the elephant in the room - sexual harassment in Hollywood and the fallout that's been rocking the industry since the Harvey Weinstein scandal began.

Meyers wasn't shy about going for the jugular, either, calling out Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey by name. "It's a gay coming-of-age film".

"- but those numbers might be off", Chau interrupted, "because a white person did the math". "WHY?" and also, "I forgot to say "alleged". because i know better".

But he even called himself out for hosting and put hosts of future shows like the Oscars on notice by comparing himself to the "first dog they shot into outer-space". "But if it's any consolation, I'm a man with absolutely no power in Hollywood". When mentioning how Seth Rogen was a more important "Seth" in the room, the host added: "Remember when he was the guy making trouble with North Korea?"
