Seth Meyers wasted no time in addressing “the elephant not in the room” during his Golden Globes opening monologue, slamming both Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey.
“Harvey Weinstein isn’t here tonight because, well, I heard rumours that he’s crazy and difficult to work with,” Meyers joked to the star-studded crowd. “Don’t worry, he’ll back in 20 years. He’ll be the first person ever booed during the In Memoriam.”
Meyers also targeted Spacey, asking in Christopher Plummer — who famously replaced the actor in “All The Money In The World” and earning a Golden Globe nomination in the process — could replace Spacey in “House Of Cards”.
“I hope [Plummer] can do a Southern accent because Kevin Spacey sure couldn’t,” he quipped. “Oh, is that too mean?” he responded after hearing a “boo” from the audience. “For Kevin Spacey?”
“If it’s any consolation, I’m a man with absolutely no power in Hollywood. I’m not even the most powerful Seth in the room tonight,” he said as the cameras zoomed in on Seth Rogen. “Hey, remember when he was the guy making trouble with North Korea? Simpler times.”
