At the 75th annual Golden Globe awards, host Seth Meyers had a daunting task ahead of him. He had to make sure that the atmosphere at the event was light. Especially, when the focus of attention was on sombre topics such as sexual harassment, Harvey Weinstein assault allegations and a large number of women dressed in black ensembles. It was a tough task to open up on these grave topics at a prestigious event, albeit he handled it with ease. Thanks to his experience of hosting shows.
He started the monologue by saying “Good morning ladies and remaining gentlemen”. He also said “It’s been years since a white man has been this nervous in Hollywood.” These phrases at the start of the monologue were good enough to crack up the audience. It was a good start for Seth Meyers.
