Hollywood's men wear black to 75th Golden Globe Awards red carpet

Eva Longoria says today's black at the Golden Globes is a

This image released by NBC shows host Seth Meyers at the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., on January 7, 2018.

He then quipped: 'Harvey Weinstein isn't here tonight because I've heard rumours he's insane and hard to work with, but don't worry, he will be back in 20 years when he becomes the first person booed during the In Memoriam'.

The actor was also roasted later in the monologue, when Meyers enlisted help from celebrities in the room to tell the punch lines of some of his jokes.

"The 75th annual Golden Globe Awards kicked off with a red carpet and opening monologue that focused nearly entirely on the growing topic of gender inequality in show business highlighted by the fall of several men in power and the growing "#MeToo" movement.

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 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.

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.

Later, Meyers confronted "the elephant not in the room", aka accused sexual predator and former producer Harvey Weinstein.

News & World Report lists Ball State and other public IN universities as having some of the best-qualified online programs . The University of Florida is the No. 1-ranked school in the Southeastern Conference for online bachelor's degree programs.

Weinstein's name came up fairly early, with Meyers predicting that, years from now, he'll be booed after his death during the "In Memoriam" segment. "Remember when he was the one making trouble with North Korea?" And they said, "It's at a hotel", and long story short, I'm your host tonight.

"I hope he can do a Southern accent, because Kevin Spacey sure couldn't" Meyers continued, referring to Spacey's nefarious South Carolinian character of President Frank Underwood on House of Cards as more groans came from the crowd and the camera panned to show a chuckling Plummer.

"- but those numbers might be off", Chau interrupted, "because a white person did the math".

In a post-Harvey Weinstein world, you can't talk about Hollywood without bringing up the rampant disparity between men in powerful positions and the women and men they've abused.

"Billy Eichner, who is openly gay, got the privilege of wrapping this joke: "'Call Me By Your Name" is nominated for Best Motion Picture. Hollywood. Foreign. Press. The only name that could make his angrier is the Hillary Mexico Salad Association'.

Some of the highlights included, as can be expected from the hold-nothing-back late-night host, major digs at numerous accused men in Hollywood.
