Sandra Oh, Andy Samberg to host the 2019 Golden Globes next month

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has announced that Sandra Oh, star of the critically acclaimed BBC America drama series Killing Eve and Andy Samberg, star of NBC's Golden Globe-winning comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine, will co-host the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards.

"Sandra and Andy are the flawless choices to host this world-class event", Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks, co-chairmen of Globes broadcaster NBC Entertainment, said in a statement on Wednesday, adding they would bring "wit, charm and style" to the ceremony.

While that may seem like a unusual coupling on paper, the duo were a highlight when presenting at the Emmy Awards together in September; an appearance which likely had a role in today's announcement. Samberg, meanwhile, is a two-time Golden Globe victor for his work on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, taking home statuettes in both the acting and producing categories.

"Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg were unexpectedly fun together presenting at the Emmys and now I am even more excited for the #GoldenGlobes", another person said. Oh is the first person of color to emcee the show. Last year's host was comedian and late-night star Seth Meyers.

Both Samberg and Oh have had a pretty fantastic year on television in 2018.

Meher Tatna is President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Allen Shapiro, Executive Chairman of dick clark productions, Mike Mahan, CEO of dick clark productions and Barry Adelman, Executive VP of Television at dick clark productions, will serve as executive producers. Previously, Oh starred as Dr. Cristina Yang on ABC's "Grey's Anatomy", for which she also received five Emmy nominations. His cop comedy "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" makes its NBC premiere - after five seasons on Fox - on January 10, just four days after the Globes.
