2018 Golden Globes Predictions

Tonight, Seth Meyers hosts the Golden Globes, and it’s sure to be an interesting night. Meyers is one of the better late-night hosts, and he’s excellent at tackling current events, thanks to his years hosting Weekend Update on SNL. But more importantly, we’ve seen a social and cultural shift in Hollywood over the last few months, as the rapey, abusive creeps who’ve been gatekeeping opportunity and progress for decades are slowly but surely being weeded out. And it will no doubt be an underlying theme of the evening. I’m not saying I hope someone starts some shit tonight, but like I’m also not not saying that…(*whispers* Burn it down).

Would it have been better for a woman (especially a woman of color) to tackle these issues as a host? Yes, and it would’ve showed that Hollywood is moving forward. But I also realize this deal was signed long before the Harvey Weinstein shit went down, and that NBC thinks about ratings more than what’s better for what’s happening right now. At least if it has to be a man, I trust Meyers to handle it appropriately (Late Night does have a segment where writers Amber Ruffin and Jenny Hagel talk about the jokes Seth can’t tell because he’s a straight white man).

Also, to my dudes attending the Golden Globes…we’re watching you. You don’t get brownie points for doing the bare minimum (like wearing a black tux that you were already going to wear). Oh, and don’t look to Matt Damon for inspiration. Anyway, let’s make some predictions!
