Seth Meyers gives hints at political jokes for Sunday's Golden Globes

Seth Meyers says that his Golden Globes opening monologue will likely focus on sexual misconduct in Hollywood, but zingers aimed at President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump rallies in Nevada amid Supreme Court flurry: 'We're gonna get Brett' Trump: 'Good news' that Obama is campaigning again Trump boosts Heller, hammers 'Wacky Jacky' opponent in Nevada MORE aren’t off-limits.

“With the monologue, as far as talking about anything in the news right now, it seems like this year more than ever Hollywood has its own internal politics that obviously deserve to be talked about,” Meyers tells People magazine in an interview published Tuesday.

Film producer Harvey Weinstein and actor Kevin Spacey were two of several prominent entertainment figures to face allegations of sexual harassment and assault in a wave of accusations that swept through Hollywood last year.


“Going into it our focus is far more on the worlds that make these films and less on anything that’s happening in Washington,” Meyers, 44, said.

The “Late Night” host is poised to take the reins at Sunday’s 75th annual Golden Globes, airing on NBC.

A frequent critic of the commander in chief on his late-night show, Meyers noted a strong possibility that he’ll also turn the Golden Globes spotlight on Trump: “He holds the keys to us not talking about him, which would be to just behave differently.”

“But while he continues on this path, we’ll continue on ours,” Meyers said.

A slew of stars took shots at Trump at last year’s Golden Globes ceremony, with Meryl Streep railing against the then-president-elect in an emotional speech.

Trump responded to Streep’s criticism by calling the actress “overrated” in a tweet.
