"We're excited to welcome Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg as co-hosts of Hollywood's party of the year", said the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) president, Meher Tatna.

A year after winning the Delightful AF category in a landslide at this year's Emmy Awards, Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg have been announced as the hosts of the 2019 Golden Globe Awards. "It's sure to be another unforgettable fun-filled night". He's a two-time Golden Globe victor, one for performance by an actor and one as a producer on "Brooklyn Nine-Nine", which won for best television series, musical or comedy.

Oh is best known for her role in the long-running television hospital drama Grey's Anatomy and is now starring in BBC America's acclaimed Killing Eve. The Golden Globes led NBC to the nightlong win in total viewers despite National Football League playoff competition. Oh, meanwhile, now stars (and serves as co-executive producer) on BBC America's "Killing Eve", for which she was nominated for Best Actress in a Drama at this year's Emmys.

In most cases when a ceremony has two hosts, they are longtime friends or an onscreen duo - or both - 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.
