We are a month away from the Golden Globe, a very important Hollywood audiovisual award, and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has named Sandra Oh (Killing Eve, Grey’s Anatomy) and Andy Samberg (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) as the hosts of this year’s ceremony, marked to be broadcast on January 6, by NBC.
“Sandra and Andy are the perfect choices to host this world-class event,” Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks, co-chairs of NBC Entertainment, said in a statement. “They bring wit, charm and style to a room full of the best in cinema and television. It will surely be another fun and unforgettable night.”
The choice may have been directly influenced by the highly praised performance of his chemistry with presenters at this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards, as shown in the clip below:
Oh is the producer and star of BBC America’s Killing Eve, her first major production since Grey’s Anatomy, a series that brought her to fame for her supporting role that even earned her a Golden Globe in 2016. Samberg, in turn, is a former writer and member of Saturday Night Live, twice a Golden Globe winner, one per performance and the other as a Brooklyn Nine-Nine producer.
