Oh, the star of the critically acclaimed BBC America drama series “Killing Eve,” and Samberg, star of NBC’s Golden Globe-winning comedy “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” will emcee the ceremony, which will be broadcast live from Los Angeles' Beverly Hilton hotel Jan. 6 on NBC.
“Sandra and Andy are the perfect choices to host this world-class event,” Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks, co-chairmen of NBC Entertainment, said 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.”
The pairing may sound unlikely at first, until viewers recall the duo's terrific chemistry during a bit at the 2018 Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony in September. Together they poked fun at the 2017 Oscars best picture mixup before presenting the trophy for outstanding directing for a comedy series.
Also, both stars are past Golden Globe winners themselves. Oh, 47, won a Golden Globe in 2006 for playing Dr. Cristina Yang on "Grey's Anatomy." Samberg, 40, won a Golden Globe for his role as goofy cop Jake Peralta on "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," and another for producing the show.
Nominations for the 2019 Golden Globe Awards will be announced Thursday morning.
