The 10 best jokes from Seth Meyers' Golden Globes monologue

Meryl Streep Explains Why She's Wearing Black on the Golden Globes Red Carpet

"Happy new year Hollywood!". But Meyers was pitch-perfect.

Perhaps the most seemingly contentious material Meyers had was about Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey, two of the most prominent names fallen from favor after allegations of sexual misconduct.

"Good evening ladies and REMAINING gentlemen!" began Meyers.

As the "Me Too" movement gained national attention following the Harvey Weinstein scandal, focus was shifted to previous allegations of sexual assault and harassment at the hands of Donald Trump. He then recognized that hosting the Golden Globes this year was tricky and that upcoming hosts for other awards shows were watching him like he was the "first dog being shot into outer space".

"For the male nominees here tonight this is the first time in three months it won't be terrifying to hear your name read out loud". "They said, 'How'd you like to come and be judged by some of the most most powerful people in Hollywood?' And women were, like 'Hmmm".

"If it's any consolation, I'm a man with absolutely no power in Hollywood".

Meyers also longed for the "simpler times" when Seth Rogen was the "guy making trouble with North Korea".

"They tried to get a woman to host the show". "But don't worry he'll be back in 20 years when he becomes the first person booed during the inmemorian". He also added that he hoped that Christopher Plummer replaced Kevin Spacey on House of Cards and did a better Southern accent. He said, "I thought, oh man, not another Woody Allen movie". He joked that The Post would win all the awards.

Noting Oprah Winfrey is receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award, Meyers added, "I just want to say, Oprah, you will never be President".

Somewhat Positive News Coverage Somewhat Unlikely to Impact Davita (DVA) Share Price
Looking at the indicators on shares of Davita Healthcare Partners Inc ( DVA ), we see that the PPO is above the signal line. Sumitomo Mitsui Asset Management has 0.03% invested in Yum! Hartford Invest Mngmt invested 0.18% in DaVita Inc. (NYSE:C).

Acknowledging speculation that his Trump jokes as host of the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner may have convinced him to run for president, Meyers chose to see if his reverse-psychology act would work one more time.

"Now we just wait and see", Meyers said as the crowd erupted.

"Oh, are you telling me how it works?" she asked. So she did a punch line with with no setup.

"Call Me By Your Name is nominated for Best Motion Picture". They didn't get there due to their rich dad, except for "that one PA".

Rather than sign off with another punchline, Meyers ended his act in an appealingly earnest fashion by recognizing who and what the night was really about: "People in this room worked really hard to get here, but it's clearer now than ever before that the women had to work even harder".

"I look forward to you leading us into whatever comes next", he said.

I'm going with mostly yes starting with his strong opening.

So if they were looking for a host who would tip-toe around the elephant in the room, they should have looked for someone else.

"Is a Harvey Weinstein joke appropriate right now?"
