Dressed in black, sartorially supporting the fight against sexual abuse scandal that rocked the showbiz last year, the presenter welcomed the new year, saying, "Its 2018 and marijuana is finally allowed, and sexual harassment finally isnt".
In the television category, "Big Little Lies" won four awards, with "The Handmaid's Tale" close behind with two awards.
The tone he set has stayed ever since - opening with a cutting monologue about Hollywood, often mocking numerous stars present.
Meyers, a first-time host of the 75th annual awards show, greeted the audience with a wisecrack: "Good evening, ladies...and remaining gentlemen". "For the male stars in the room this will be the first time in months that it won't be terrifying to hear your name read out loud", Meyers quipped. And secondly I'm a woman in Hollywood, Seth.

Meyers went on to congratulate Insecure creator and star Issa Rae for having "three projects in development" with HBO - to which Rae responded, "yeah. and three projects is also where they think I'm from".
