With a month before the Golden Globes telecast and a day before nominations are announced, BROOKLYN NINE-NINE and KILLING EVE’s Sandra Oh have been named co-hosts for the upcoming January 6 ceremony.
More from Deadline Hollywood:
“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.”
NBC, the TV home of the Golden Globe Awards for the past 23 years, did not officially become the network for the 2019 awards until September, when it closed a new eight-year deal with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and dick clark productions to keep the show.
“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.”
Added Mike Mahan, Executive Producer and CEO, dick clark productions. “This innovative pairing sets the perfect tone for the most entertaining awards celebration of the year.”
Oh and Sandberg had a “test run” of sorts, when they appeared on stage at the Emmys in September to announce an award and performed a comedy bit that caught the eye of Golden Globe producers. You can see the clip below:
