       2018 Golden Globes Everything you need to know

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

"Harvey Weinstein isn't here tonight because, well, I've heard rumors he's insane and hard to work with", Meyers said. Host Seth Meyers said "Hollywood Foreign Press" sounds like three words created to infuriate Donald Trump.

Here's how the NBC late-night comedian tackled the biggest issues of the night. Meyers began. In terms of being the first out hosting an awards show in this climate-and a straight white male at that-Meyers compared himself to the first dog shot into outer space.

Meyers wrapped up his monologue with a thank you to the women in the audience: "I look forward to whatever you'll be leading us into next".

"I think it's time to address the elephant not in the room", he said.

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.

"Good evening ladies and remaining gentlemen", Meyers said to kick off his monologue.

He told a couple of jokes at his expense: "There's a new era underway and I can tell, because it's been years since a white man was this nervous in Hollywood".

It will feature integration with Roku Connect and Roku Entertainment System, allowing your TV to be controlled by voice commands. TCL's totally new 5-Series marries superior 4K UHD picture quality with Dolby Vision for a stellar imaging experience.

Several loud groans were heard following that comment, to which Meyers wittily replied, "it'll sound like that" and the reactions swiftly changed to laughs.

Meyers joked about when Seth Rogen, rather than Trump, "was the guy making trouble with North Korea", referring to Rogen's movie "The Interview". Is Christopher Plummer available for that, too?

"It's a total message of solidarity and support, community within our industry and also letting women in other industries know that they have our support too", she said, adding that "I'm bringing one of my best friends with me and she'll be wearing black also". "I'm Seth Meyers and I'll be your host tonight".

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. "They tried to get a woman to host this show, they really did".

"Call Me By Your Name is nominated for Best Motion Picture, said Meyers".

- "Considering what has been going on this year with powerful men and their awful behavior in Hollywood, a lot of people thought it would be more appropriate for a woman to host these awards, and they may be right".

Billed as the most raucous event in the showbiz calendar, the champagne-drenched Hollywood Foreign Press Association's annual prize-giving is a draw for filmmakers and actors looking to create some buzz ahead of the Oscars in March.
