Rose McGowan, another Weinstein accuser who earlier blasted the idea that stars wear black to the show, tweeted to Argento that she had "no time for Hollywood fakery" coming from, as she put it, "fancy people wearing black to honor our rapes". File Meyers under the winners category for his opening monologue alone.
Not only that, the owner has apparently hired TEN more staff members (to a typical staff of five) just in the last week or so to handle the swell of celebs and Globes-goers specifically seeking black dresses for the event tonight.
Here's how the NBC late-night comedian tackled the biggest issues of the night.
"They tried to get a woman to host this show".
If the other hosts were nervous for Meyers, they shouldn't have been. Another notable line? "It's 2018, marijuana is finally allowed, and sexual harassment finally isn't". He continued, "I hope he can do a southern accent because Kevin Spacey sure couldn't". [Crowd reacts with an ohhh] Oh, was that too mean? When he started talking about The Post's Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, and Meryl Streep, someone came out with a bunch of awards as a joke, and Meyers told them they have to wait to give out them out.
And of course, it's hard to beat all-time great recent co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who brought their best quips from 2013 to 2015.
If Meyers found a good balance, the rest of the show seemed a little shakier. For others, it was business as usual, thanking fellow nominees, family and handlers. Meyers said as he took the stage.
In comedies, indie studio A24's mother-daughter film Lady Bird and The Disaster Artist are seen as likely frontrunners for the statuette.More news: National Human Trafficking Awareness

"I had conversations with my wife and with the women on this staff, and we all agreed it's an opportunity to be able to say some things that you wouldn't be able to say in previous years", Meyers told The Hollywood Reporter. But their time is up.
As he said right at the top, "It's 2018!"
The show should be an interesting one.
Meyers promoted the Globes by saying Hollywood had a lot to talk about.
Bringing people to their feet a couple of times during her almost 10-minute acceptance speech, the talk show host, movie producer, Oscar-winning actress and Weight Watchers ambassador ended her address with a somber yet hopeful plea.
