Sandra Oh, Andy Samberg to host the 2019 Golden Globes next month

It was recently announced that 2019 Golden Globes will be hosted by Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg, with the news eliciting excitement among social media users. Oh top-lined the stellar spy-thriller Killing Eve over on BBC America, which saw the actress play an MI5 officer caught in the crosshairs of a deadly assassin named Villanelle (Jodie Comer). The Golden Globes led NBC to the nightlong win in total viewers despite National Football League playoff competition. "It's sure to be another unforgettable fun-filled night", co-chairmen of NBC Entertainment Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks said in a statement.

The Golden Globes, chosen by members of the small Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), are the first major ceremony in Hollywood's long awards season culminating with the Oscars on February 24.

"I am exclusively going to be watching the Golden Globes for Sandra Oh and when she's not on screen I will be looking at Instagram send tweet", one fan commented. And in 2015, Samberg hosted the Emmy awards to generally positive reviews.

The Golden Globes had aired without a host for decades until NBC in 2010 tapped Ricky Gervais for the job.

The "Killing Eve" star and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" comedian stole the show earlier this year while presenting an award at the Emmys together, leaving fans wanting more. Previous year the show was helmed by Seth Meyers. Nominations for the awards will be announced on Thursday, and the ceremony will take place in Beverly Hills, Calif., on January 6.

Meher Tatna is President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Previously, Oh starred as Dr. Cristina Yang on ABC's "Grey's Anatomy", for which she also received five Emmy nominations. "Brooklyn Nine-Nine", on which he stars as Detective Jake Peralta, was canceled by Fox in May after five seasons.
