"Black-ish" star Tracee Ellis Ross donned a black headwrap with her black satin Marc Jacobs halterneck dress, "The Crown" star Claire Foy opted for a black tuxedo suit, twinning with her co-star Matt Smith, and "Will and Grace" actress Debra Messing wore a black sequined Christian Siriano dress with pants.

The proposed red carpet blackout has dominated headlines about the Golden Globes since it was announced late previous year. "Good evening, ladies and remaining gentlemen", he grinned slash grimaced, breaking the ice as best he could.

And you'll have to judge the fashion by yourself - for the first time in years, there will be no "Fashion Police" on on Monday night to analyze all the gowns and tuxes, as the series on E! officially wrapped up for good in November. "Theres a new era underway and I can tell because its been years since a white man was this nervous in Hollywood".

He also addressed head-on concerns that a woman should have been asked to host. The project aimed to halt the objectification of women, and put their achievements and experiences into the spotlight instead of their bodies and the clothes adorning them.

"They tried to get a woman to host the show which will be judged by some of the most powerful men in Hollywood and they were like hmm, well where is it?"

The Globes had always been the stomping grounds of disgraced mogul Harvey Weinstein, whose downfall precipitated allegations against James Toback, Kevin Spacey and many others. Meyers mentioned the obvious absence of Harvey Weinstein, joking Weinstein would return in 20 years to be the only person ever to be booed during the "In Memoriam".

Chinese media blames India for United States cutting aid to Pakistan
The Global Times editorial says China should provide qualitative and effective economic assistance and cooperation to Pakistan. But he said it could be a backup plan in response to the Indo-Pacific strategy of the United States and its allies.

Meyers took a swipe at Kevin Spacey, who was accused by several actors of sexual assault.

In amongst the humour, Meyers paid tribute to some of 2017's best productions, including Ridley Scott's All the Money in the World, a film about the 1973 kidnapping of the 16-year-old grandson of oil tycoon John Paul Getty.

Spacey was also fired from the Netflix show, which he fronted. "I hope he can do a Southern accent because Kevin Spacey sure couldn't". "Remember that? Simpler times".

While introducing Meher Tatna, the HFPA president, Meyers joked that she was a president who "actually is a stable genius", in reference to Trump's tweets over the weekend.

"I think it's time to talk about the elephant not in the room: Harvey Weinstein isn't here tonight".

"So thank you for all the wonderful work that you've all done and continue to do", he said, "I look forward to you leading us to whatever comes next".
