Sandra Oh, Andy Samberg to host 2019 Golden Globes

Sandra Oh, Andy Samberg to co-host Globes

The announcement that the Killing Eve star and Brooklyn Nine-Nine amusing man would host the evening was made Wednesday afternoon.

"Sandra and Andy are the ideal choices to host this world-class event", said Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks, the co-chairmen of NBC Entertainment, in a statement. So they didn't forget Atlanta, one of the absolute best shows on television, they just...didn't nominate it. Look, I love The Good Place, but this was not their best year. "It's sure to be another unforgettable fun-filled night". And to prove how perspicacious the Hollywood Foreign Press can be, it awarded Sacha Baron Cohen a stealth nod for best actor in comedy series for Showtime's "Who Is America?", presenting a threat to Douglas, Donald Glover ("Atlanta"), Jim Carrey ("Kidding") and this year's Emmy victor Bill Hader ("Barry").

The two celebrities will be first-time hosts for the Golden Globes, which honour both television and film.

The duo won praise on social media for their chemistry presenting at this year's Primetime Emmy Awards.

While Sam Elliott's supporting performance in A Star Is Born was unexpectedly overlooked, the Warner Bros. hit (which elected to compete on the more hefty drama side of the Globes despite its many songs) earned the expected nods for Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, as both actor and director.




The 76th Golden Globes will take place at the Beverly Hilton, Los Angeles, on January 6 2019 at 5pm local time (1am in the UK).

Samberg is a former Saturday Night Live, cast member and a previous Golden Globe victor for television comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

He was the 2015 Emmy Awards host, while Oh is a newcomer to handling emcee duties for a major ceremony. "This innovative pairing sets the ideal tone for the most entertaining awards celebration of the year".

Marvel has made a heroic push for the film in recent months by hiring Oscar strategist Cynthia Swartz to lead the campaign for awards season with the support of Marvel President Kevin Feige and a "significant awards season budget".

Still, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association didn't make too many egregious errors. A24, the studio behind First Reformed, seemed to be having a bit of an off year at the Globes, as Eighth Grade also missing out on a Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy nomination, while Hereditary's Toni Collette was similarly snubbed from best actress in a drama. NBC picked it up a few days later.
