Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg to host 76th Golden Globe Awards

A year after winning the Delightful AF category in a landslide at this year's Emmy Awards, Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg have been announced as the hosts of the 2019 Golden Globe Awards.

Oh is now riding high on the critical and ratings success of her new series, BBC America's "Killing Eve". Samberg is a former Saturday Night Live cast member and a Golden Globe victor for television comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

'Sandra and Andy are the flawless choices to host this world-class event, ' Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks, co-chairmen, NBC Entertainment, said in a statement. The Golden Globes led NBC to the nightlong win in total viewers despite National Football League playoff competition. "It's sure to be another unforgettable, fun-filled night". The Golden Globes serve as the official kickoff to the 2019 awards season. While Oh does not appear to have any past award show hosting credits, Samberg has hosted both the Independent Spirit Awards and the Emmys.

Meher Tatna, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which hosts the annual Golden Globes show, said he was looking forward to seeing the duo's "undeniable chemistry" onstage.
