It's official! Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg will host the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards this January.
While that may seem like a odd coupling on paper, the duo were a highlight when presenting at the Emmy Awards together in September; an appearance which likely had a role in today's announcement.
"Sandra and Andy are the ideal choices to host this world-class event", said Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks, the co-chairmen of NBC Entertainment, in a statement. The Golden Globes led NBC to the nightlong win in total viewers despite National Football League playoff competition.
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. Oh is the first person of color to emcee the show. The three-hour live telecast will air Sunday, Jan. 6, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT from Beverly Hills.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association also teased that it plans to make a major announcement about the annual ceremony during the nominations press conference. Allen Shapiro, Executive Chairman of dick clark productions, Mike Mahan, CEO of dick clark productions and Barry Adelman, Executive VP of Television at dick clark productions, will serve as executive producers.
While it is unclear if Samberg may be nominated in the Best Actor - Television Series Musical or Comedy category, many have speculated that Oh could be nominated for her work on Killing Eve. NBC picked it up a few days later.
