The Time's Up campaign, formed weeks ago against systematic sexual harassment both in and outside of the entertainment industry, dominated the 75th Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night.

Celebrities, including Natalie Portman, Meryl Streep, Emma Stone wore black in protest against sexual abuse in the workplace during the event, which is the first major ceremony in the Hollywood annual awards season.

Hosting the event, American comedian Seth Meyers also addressed sexual harassment, targeting Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and Woody Allen.

"Harvey Weinstein isn’t here tonight because, well, I’ve heard rumors he’s crazy and difficult to work with," Meyers said.

"Don’t worry because he’ll be back in 20 years when he becomes the first person ever booed during the In Memoriam."

Harassment allegations against film producer Weinstein, actor Spacey and many other famous figures have been in the media spotlight for several months.

The Time's Up campaign has already raised over $15 million in donations so far, which will be used to "help survivors of sexual assault and harassment across all industries challenge those responsible for the harm against them and give voice to their experiences", according to an open letter published by the campaign.
