Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Andy Samberg, Grey’s Anatomy’s Sandra Oh to host 2019 Golden Globes
Oh will be the first actress of Asian ethnicity to host the awards.
If next year’s Oscars will be hosted by Kevin Hart, the Golden Globes will have Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh.
Producers on Wednesday (Dec 5) announced the two actors from Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Grey’s Anatomy, respectively, will be sharing hosting duties for the Jan 6 ceremony.
"Sandra and Andy are the perfect choices to host this world-class event," said Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks, the co-chairmen of NBC Entertainment, in a statement. "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."
Oh is the first actress of Asian ethnicity to host the Golden Globes, which she won for Grey’s Anatomy in 2006. This year, she became the first to also receive an Emmy nomination for drama series lead for Killing Eve.
Saturday Night Live alum Samberg, meanwhile, is a two-time winner for the hit comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine. He also hosted the Emmy Awards in 2016.
It will be the first time a duo has hosted the awards since Tina Fey and Amy Poehler did thrice in a row, from 2013 to 2015. Previous hosts have included Seth Meyers, Jimmy Fallon and Ricky Gervais.
