The 2019 Golden Globes seems to have finally found a host — or, rather, hosts. With only 32 days to go before NBC’s marquee awards telecast, Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh are set to take the Beverly Hilton stage on Jan. 6.

Globes partners The Hollywood Foreign Press, producers Dick Clark Productions and broadcaster NBC took quite a while to nail down the duo. Samberg, next seen in Brooklyn Nine-Nine when it relaunches on NBC after five seasons on Fox, comes to the film-and-television kudos with a hosting resume that includes a well-received go at the 2015 Emmy Awards.  As for Oh, she may seem like an unexpected choice, but the Grey’s Anatomy alum gave one of the most-talked about performances of 2018 on BBC America dramedy Killing Eve.

 

Oh and Samberg presented together at the 2018 Emmys.

“Sandra and Andy are the perfect choices to host this world-class event,” said Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks, co-chairmen, NBC Entertainment. “They bring wit, charm and style to a room filled with the very best of film and television. It’s sure to be another unforgettable fun-filled night.”

“We’re excited to welcome Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg as co-hosts of Hollywood’s Party of the Year,” said HFPA president Meher Tatna. “Both Golden Globe Award recipients have continually showcased their talents in film and television, and we can’t wait see what their undeniable chemistry will bring to the Golden Globes stage.”

 

Samberg is a longtime part of the NBC family. After launching his career at Saturday Night Live in 2005 and staying with the show through 2012, Samberg almost immediately segued to the Universal Television-produced Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
