Seth Meyers had a hard task on Sunday delivering a monologue as host for the 75th annual Golden Globes that effectively addressed the #MeToo movement that's taken hold in Hollywood and beyond.

Meyers did a bit borrowed from Late Night where he sets up a joke and someone who isn't a straight white dude tells the punchline, which included an even harsher Spacey joke: Meyers described Call Me Be Your Name as "a gay coming of age film" and then Billy Eichner said "Said Kevin Spacey: 'you lost me at of age".

"The 75th annual Golden Globe Awards kicked off with a red carpet and opening monologue that focused nearly entirely on the growing topic of gender inequality in show business highlighted by the fall of several men in power and the growing "#MeToo" movement.

Meyers' words are especially pointed given the often loose, celebratory style of seasonal awards shows and how hosts can often whiff when attempting to strike at the establishment.

And while the topics of sexual harassment and gender inequality are serious, Meyers did his best to lighten the mood.

Meyers also took a shot at shunned actor Kevin Spacey. After a red carpet hour (plus) in which supportive actors of both sexes explained why they were wearing black in solidarity with the Time's Up initiative and the #MeToo movement, Meyers reminded the audience exactly why Hollywood has become ground zero for combatting workplace sexual harassment. The audience audibly groaned when he predicted that Weinstein would be "the first person ever to be booed in the In Memoriam".

Meyers then brought up the names of some of Hollywood's most influential men, all of whom have been embroiled in allegations of sexual misconduct over the past few months. When you kick the whole speech off with the sentence "Good evening, ladies and gentleman", there's really no question as to what the tone is going to be.

"There's a new era underway and I can tell because it's been years since a white man was this nervous in Hollywood", he added. Hey remember he was the guy making trouble with North Korea.

'I'm not even the most powerful Seth in the room tonight, ' he joked as the camera panned to comedian Seth Rogen. "For example, I was happy to hear they were going to do another season of 'House of Cards.' Is Christopher Plummer available for that too?" I hope he can do a Southern accent. Meyers is a pro POTUS roaster, so his latest crop of jokes - calling the Hollywood Foreign Press "a string of three words that could not have been better created to infuriate our president" - were par for the (golf) course. "The only name that would make him angrier would be the 'Hillary Mexico Salad Associated'".
