The Golden Globes are underway and host Seth Meyers didn't pull any punches in his opening monologue.

He later added: 'Harvey Weinstein isn't here tonight because I've heard rumors that he's insane and hard to work with.

And so toward the end of his Golden Globes monologue - which relied exclusively on punchlines instead of soft-shoeing his way through a song-and-dance number - Meyers brought "Jokes Seth Can't Tell" to the Golden Globes, setting up jokes and then handing off the punchlines to more fitting people out in the audience.

The Globes are airing right now on NBC.

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.

From his very first introduction, Meyers immediately addressed the elephant in the room - sexual harassment in Hollywood and the fallout that's been rocking the industry since the Harvey Weinstein scandal began.

One of the most pronounced reactions, though, came when Meyers did a joke about Harvey Weinstein, the longtime film producer who sparked the reckoning over sexual harassment after The New York Times and The New Yorker revealed three decades of allegations against him. But don't worry, he'll be back in 20 years, when he becomes the first person ever booed during the In Memoriam, " he quipped, referencing the annual segment of the Academy Awards where a video is made to honor all the celebrities who died that year. 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.

"It's been years since a white man has been this nervous in Hollywood", he continued. "I'm a woman in Hollywood".

When the audience loudly reacted to the joke, Meyers added, "It'll sound like that". "Remember when he was the one causing trouble with North Korea?"

While rattling off some of the events of the year, Meyers noted, "They're gonna do another season of 'House of Cards.' Is Christopher Plummer available for that, too?"

In a post-Harvey Weinstein world, you can't talk about Hollywood without bringing up the rampant disparity between men in powerful positions and the women and men they've abused. Meyers then remarked that the Golden Globes are Trump's worst nightmare, combining his least favorite things on earth: the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. 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'".
