During his opening monologue, Seth Meyers swung for the fences with his biting jokes about sexual harassment in Hollywood. His joke about Harvey Weinstein's appearance in an in memoriam was a home run.
Meyers joked that Weinstein will be the first person booed during an in memoriam. The joke instantly drew applause from the crowd of A-listers at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
Those watching at home were also impressed by the joke.
Wow, Seth Myers saying that 20 years from now Harvey Weinstein will be the first person to be booed in a memoriam.

The 2018 Golden Globes is the first major awards show since Weinstein's sexual harassment scandal. The disgraced Hollywood producer has been accused of sexual misconduct by around 80 women.
Since then, women in Hollywood have rallied together to fight sexual harassment. Around 300 women are backing the "Time's Up" campaign, which also includes a legal defense fund that has raised over $15 million to help women find legal representation in sexual harassment cases.
