Page Six previously reported that actress Rosanna Arquette, one of the many stars who have accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct and harassment, posted on Facebook: "It is Very odd, that Harvey Weinstein is at the very same hotel in Beverly Hills that the golden globe press is being done at".

"Harvey Weinstein isn't here tonight because, well, I heard rumors that he's insane and hard to work with", Seth, who is hosting the show, told the crowd during his opening monologue.

"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 began. In terms of being the first out hosting an awards show in this climate-and a straight white male at that-Meyers compared himself to the first dog shot into outer space. "It's 2018, marijuana is finally allowed and sexual harassment finally isn't", he added to receive both laughs and thunderous applause.

First I want to get to 20, then 30 and once there 40", he added. "And there were times when I putted well but couldn't sink them". Of that drive at the 12th he said:"I could see it until it landed, and I knew that it was on a good line.

"I think it's time to address the elephant not in the room", he said. "Don't worry because he'll be back in 20 year when he becomes the first person ever booed during 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. "Good evening ladies and remaining gentlemen".

'It's been years that a white man in Hollywood was this nervous, ' he quipped. "Remember when he was the one causing trouble with North Korea?"

When the audience loudly reacted to the joke, Meyers added, "It'll sound like that". "They're going to do another season of House of Cards?". I hope he can do a Southern accent. Meyers described Call Me By Your Name as a coming-of-age story for a young, queer man. Billy Eichner then cracked that Kevin Spacey said, "You lost me when you said 'of age'".

He joked that producers asked a woman to host the show."They really did".

In a similar vein, he joked that they could not find a woman host because they were told they would be "judged by some of the most powerful people in Hollywood" in a hotel - a reference to how Weinstein's victims say they were abused. Said one source, "There's a rumor that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is having Harvey come to apologize". Meyers and Amy Poehler then did a long riff where Poehler said she didn't need him to mansplain how to tell a joke and she just told the punchline: "Said the peach in Call Me By Your Name, 'this scene is the pits'".
