He then quipped: 'Harvey Weinstein isn't here tonight because I've heard rumours he's insane and hard to work with, but don't worry, he will be back in 20 years when he becomes the first person booed during the In Memoriam'.

Somehow that joke also elicited an audible response from the audience, leading to Meyers' response: "Oh was that too mean?"

Later during the show, which saw Sterling K. Brown, Nicole Kidman and Elisabeth Moss among the night's first winners, Meyers took aim at U.S. president Donald Trump, pointing to Seth Rogen, who once upset North Korea with film The Interview.

But he even called himself out for hosting and put hosts of future shows like the Oscars on notice by comparing himself to the "first dog they shot into outer-space". The audience laughed as Meyers referred to Plummer having replaced Spacey for his role as real-life oil tycoon J.P. Getty in Ridley Scott's drama All the Money in the World. "Marijuana is finally allowed, and sexual harassment finally isn't".

Former UGA player Matt Stinchcomb elected to College Football Hall of Fame
But he learned Monday that he has already gained inclusion in the College Football Hall of Fame in December. His 21 career interceptions and 389 interception return yards still stand as Miami and Big East records.

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

Well, I think it's time to address the elephant not in the room. 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. "Good evening ladies and remaining gentlemen". "There's a new era underway and I can tell, because it's been years since a white male has been this nervous". Hey, remember when [Seth Rogen] was the guy making trouble with North Korea?

The most surprising barb from Meyers was directed toward Woody Allen, whose past behavior Hollywood stars, even those vocal about believing women victims, are infamously reticent to comment on. "They said it's at a hotel, but long story short I'm your host tonight", he added, alluding to some harassment stories that involved potential actresses showing up to directors and producers rooms.

"It's a total message of solidarity and support, community within our industry and also letting women in other industries know that they have our support too", she said, adding that "I'm bringing one of my best friends with me and she'll be wearing black also". But Poehler, faux outraged at the idea that she would need a man's help to make a joke at all, went ahead and delivered the punchline sans setup ("Said the peach in Call Me by Your Name, this scene is the pits!"). Meyers is a pro POTUS roaster, so his latest crop of jokes - calling the Hollywood Foreign Press "a string of three words that could not have been better created to infuriate our president" - were par for the (golf) course. "The only name that would make him angrier would be the Hillary Mexico Salad Association".
