Watch Seth Meyers Shred Trump, Weinstein, Spacey in Epic Golden Globes Monologue

Watch Seth Meyers Shred Trump, Weinstein, Spacey in Epic Golden Globes Monologue

"Harvey Weinstein isn't here tonight because I hear he's insane and hard to work with", said Meyers.

"Good evening, ladies and remaining gentlemen", he started out. "It's been the year of big little lies and get out... and has also been the year of the television series Big Little Lies and the film Get Out".

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

"For the male nominees in the room tonight, this will be the first time in months it won't be terrified to hear your name read aloud." joked Meyers, obviously referring to the handful of men in Hollywood that were alleged with sexual harassment and abuse this year. He was referring to disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein at that moment, but his stage patter throughout was created to put all the men in the room on notice ... himself included.

He added that they did try to get a woman to host the awards, but they all said no when they heard it was at a hotel. I'm a woman in Hollywood, Seth. "But don't worry, he'll be back in 20 years when he's the first person to be booed in their memoriam", said Meyers to a crowd that responded with lots of "oh shit!" expressions. Meyers suggested that Christopher Plummer replace Spacey on House of Cards just as he did in All the Money in the World, and he had no sympathy for Weinstein.

" I hope he can do a southern accent 'cause Kevin Spacey sure couldn't".

But Woody Allen, despite no new allegations coming forward, wasn't left out of the general roasting.

The host introduced The Shape of Water, saying, "When I heard about a movie where a young woman falls in love with a disgusting sea monster". "Said the peach in Call Me By Your Name, this scene is the pits".

"Insecure creator Issa Rae now has three projects in development with HBO..." Meyers continued, to which Rae replied, "And three projects is where they think I'm from". "Do you wanna do one?".

Amy Poehler did one too, but she just wanted to do it herself and accused Meyers of mansplaining it to her. She didn't need a setup to make a punch line work.

Meyers also joked that the president probably hates the Hollywood Foreign Press because it has three things he hates: Hollywood, foreign, and press.

According to Meyers, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association - the governing body that picks the Golden Globe winners - has a name that's seemingly created to anger the president. "Foreign. Press. The only name that would make him angrier would be the 'Hillary Mexican Salad Association.'" Towards the end of his speech, Meyers gave a shout out to Oprah Winfrey and hinted that she should run for president in 2020. You do not have what it takes. You will never be vice president!
