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.
"Sandra and Andy are the ideal choices to host this world-class event".
Oh and Samberg teamed up in September when they presented the Emmy Award for best director of a comedy, which went to Amy Sherman-Palladino of "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel".
The Golden Globes, chosen by members of the small Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), are the first major ceremony in Hollywood's long awards season culminating with the Oscars on February 24.
Oh is coming off a surprise hit in BBC America's "Killing Eve", for which she serves as executive producer and star. In recent years, the Golden Globes has repeatedly succeeded where the Oscars hasn't, largely because of a looser attitude towards the night, and a willingness to bet on the slightly left-of-centre with regards to hosting choices. Samberg won two Globes in 2014 for "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" as a producer for best television series - musical or comedy, and best actor in a television series - musical or comedy. NBC has hosted the Globes broadcast for the last 23 years.More news: Confirmed] Google Allo may be shutting down after development halted months ago

The 2018 Golden Globe Awards telecast averaged a 5.0 rating in adults 18-49 and 19 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research, putting it ahead of every show on television from the previous 10 months in total viewers, since the prior year's Academy Awards.
The show will air live on NBC at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
Meher Tatna is President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
Oh co-executive produces "Killing Eve" and stars as Eve Polastri, an MI5 officer who hunts down and becomes entangled with a cold-blooded female assassin, earning a lead actress in a drama series nomination this year. NBC picked it up a few days later.
