Golden Globes 2018: 7 Best jokes from Seth Meyers' monologue

The awards begin at 6 p.m.

HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Seth's opening monologue?

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. He opens by greeting ladies and "remaining gentleman", an obvious nod to the anti sexual harassment movement sweeping the Globes. It's been supported and criticised, becoming a surprisingly divisive topic given its intentions, which are to protest gender inequality and the treatment of women in all industries following the wave of sexual misconduct allegations that came out previous year against powerful and prominent men within the entertainment industry.

And you'll have to judge the fashion by yourself - for the first time in years, there will be no "Fashion Police" on on Monday night to analyze all the gowns and tuxes, as the series on E! officially wrapped up for good in November.

James Taylor, Bonnie Raitt to play Summerfest June 28

"There's a new era underway, and I can tell because it's been years since a white man was this nervous in Hollywood".

He did not let up from there, reminding the male nominees in the room, "This is the first time in three months it won't be terrifying to hear your name read out loud". Critics of the plan had suggested everyone dressed in the same colour would take the "magic" out of the red carpet, but could be more magical than such a powerful display of revolution and resistance? He's also proven himself to be more openly willing to admit when he, a straight white guy, can't speak to certain experiences the way, say, his women writers can.

As Meyers (Communication '96) noted, however, given the circumstances in Hollywood it might have been more appropriate for a woman to host the show. The project aimed to halt the objectification of women, and put their achievements and experiences into the spotlight instead of their bodies and the clothes adorning them.

"It will sound like that".

AMD slashes the MSRP of its Ryzen and Threadripper CPUs

Saoirse Ronan said of her much-lauded film Ladybird: "I just feel like it's one of those films that's come out at just the right time". I was happy to hear theyre going to do another season of House of Cards. I hope he can do a Southern accent. cuz Kevin Spacey sure couldn't.

But it wasn't all swipes at fallen Hollywood stars.

Scott was also nominated for best director and Michelle Williams for best actress, after the HFPA were shown a rough cut of the Spacey-free film.

"Harvey Weinstein isn't here tonight because, well, I've heard rumors he's insane and hard to work with", Meyers said. "Remember that? Simpler times".
