Less than 24 hours before nominations are announced, NBC has revealed the co-hosts of the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards.
Sandra Oh (BBC America's "Killing Eve") and Andy Samberg (NBC's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine") will emcee the 2019 TV and film awards, which will be broadcast live from Los Angeles' Beverly Hilton hotel on Jan. 6 (8 EST/5 PST).
It's the first time hosting a major awards show for Oh, an Emmy Award nominee for Lead Actress in a Drama this year for "Eve" and past Golden Globe winner for playing Dr. Cristina Yang on ABC's "Grey's Anatomy."
Samberg, also a Golden Globe winner for his comedic role in cop comedy "Brooklyn," previously hosted the Emmys in 2015, earning mixed reviews. He won Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy and as a producer for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy.
The new season of Samberg’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” will begin the week of the awards show on Thursday, January 10.
NBC Entertainment Co-Chairmen Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks say that the co-hosts selection will be sure to bring “another unforgettable fun-filled night,” and Twitter seems to agree.
Nominations for the 2019 Golden Globes will be announced Thursday morning, with "A Star is Born," "The Favourite" and "Mary Poppins Returns" predicted to lead the film races.
Unlike other awards shows, the Globes has posted mostly steady ratings over the last several years, averaging 19 million last January. But it had its closest finish yet to the Oscars, the perennial awards leader, which drew a record-low 26.5 million in February and Tuesday named Kevin Hart to host its 2019 show.
