Sex Scandal Dominates Golden Globes
The Golden Globes was a sea of black on the red carpet Sunday night as women attending wore the color in solidarity with the advocacy group Time's Up, an ambitious, sprawling initiative to fight systemic sexual harassment in Hollywood and in workplaces nationwide.
As the entertainment awards season gets under way, the Golden Globes could set the tone for other awards ceremonies, as it is the first major program since Hollywood was hit by its sexual harassment scandals this past year.
Host Seth Meyers got the evening started with a string of zingers about the scandal.
"Good evening ladies and remaining gentlemen." he said.
"Happy new year Hollywood. It's 2018, marijuana is finally allowed and sexual harassment finally isn't," he added.
The host suggested Weinstein's next appearance at the Golden Globes would be "in 20 years", when he would be "the first person booed during the In Memoriam" segment.
In October, The New York Times first broke the Harvey Weinstein story about decades of alleged harassment and abuse at the hands of the Miramax founder. Allegations include rape. Weinstein denies all allegations of non-consensual sex.
Following these claims and reports, Weinstein was fired from the company, banned from the Producer's Guild of America and expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
