Sandra Oh, left, and Andy Samberg have been declared as co-hosts for the Golden Globes in 2019.
A thirty day period right before the 2019 Golden Globes and a working day just before nominations are declared, “Brooklyn 9-Nine” star Andy Samberg and “Killing Eve”’s Sandra Oh have been named co-hosts for the Jan. six ceremony.
This is only the second time the Golden Globes has been hosted by a duo, following the three-year stint of Samberg’s former “Saturday Evening Reside” colleagues Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
Samberg was the clear option to host the awards. He is a Golden World winner for “Brooklyn 9-Nine” and the sequence, also a Golden World receiver for best comedy-musical, launches on NBC Jan. 10, four days right after the Globes. Moreover, Samberg, who has plenty of dwell Tv experience from his several years on “Saturday Night time Dwell,” has hosted key awards exhibits before — he emceed the 2015 Primetime Emmys for Fox, where by “Brooklyn 9-Nine” aired for 5 seasons., as very well as the 2013 Impartial Spirit Awards.
Samberg and Oh did a examination run as co-presenters at the Primetime Emmy Awards in September, which aired on NBC. They did a bit jointly that drew laughs.
Samberg and Oh have some thing in typical — they equally won Golden Globes in the initial year their primetime collection were qualified — Samberg in 2014 when then-freshman “Brooklyn Nine-9” was named best comedy-musical sequence, and Oh in 2006 for ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy.”
Oh is now riding high on the essential and ratings achievements of her new series, BBC America’s “Killing Eve.”
“Sandra and Andy are the perfect choices to host this world-class event,” claimed Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks, Co-Chairmen, NBC Entertainment. “They deliver wit, attraction and style to a home filled with the incredibly very best of film and tv. It is guaranteed to be an additional unforgettable entertaining-filled evening.”
NBC, the Tv residence of the Golden Globe Awards for the past 23 a long time, did not formally become the community for the 2019 awards right until September when it closed a new 8-yr offer with the Hollywood Overseas Push Affiliation and dick clark productions to retain the exhibit.
“We’re psyched to welcome Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg as co-hosts of Hollywood’s Social gathering of the Yr,” said HFPA President Meher Tatna. “Both Golden World Award recipients have continually showcased their skills in film and television, and we simply cannot wait around see what their simple chemistry will carry to the Golden Globes stage.”
Added Mike Mahan, Govt Producer and CEO, dick clark productions. “This impressive pairing sets the perfect tone for the most entertaining awards celebration of the calendar year.”
The Golden Globes had aired without a host for a long time until eventually NBC in 2010 tapped Ricky Gervais for the position. Considering the fact that then, he has hosted 4 situations, Fey and Poehler three situations, with NBC’s late-evening stars Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers getting turns the last two several years. Oh is the 1st person of shade to emcee the show.
In most conditions when a ceremony has two hosts, they are longtime close friends or an onscreen duo — or both equally — like Fey and Poehler at the Globes, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin at the Oscars and Colin Jost and Michael Che at the Primetime Emmys.
“Assembling” a hosting staff is a riskier proposition as evident by the a great deal-maligned crew-up of Anne Hathaway and James Franco at the Oscars although Jenna Elfman and David Hyde Pierce obtained good marks for their Emmy emceeing stint.
The 75th Golden Globes in January drew 19 million viewers and a five. score in the older people 18-49 demographic (Dwell+Similar Day). That was down a bit from the 2017 show to a six-year demo small, but nonetheless ranked as the most viewed awards exhibit considering the fact that the Oscars.
The a few-hour 76th Golden Gloves ceremony will air dwell coast to coastline on NBC from the Beverly Hills Lodge at 8 PM.
Meher Tatna is President of the Hollywood Overseas Push Affiliation. Allen Shapiro, Govt Chairman of dick clark productions, Mike Mahan, CEO of dick clark productions and Barry Adelman, Executive VP of Tv at dick clark productions, will serve as govt producers.
Oh co-executive produces “Killing Eve” and stars as Eve Polastri, an MI5 officer who hunts down and gets to be entangled with a chilly-blooded female assassin, earning a direct actress in a drama series nomination this 12 months. Earlier, Oh starred as Dr. Cristina Yang on ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy,” for which she also gained 5 Emmy nominations.
For his operate on “SNL,” Samberg gained an Emmy Award and 6 further nominations. “Brooklyn 9-Nine,” on which he stars as Detective Jake Peralta, was canceled by Fox in May perhaps after 5 seasons. NBC picked it up a handful of times afterwards.
