Sandra Oh, Andy Samberg to co-host Globes

Sandra Oh, Andy Samberg to co-host Globes

Earlier this year, NBC closed a deal with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and Dick Clark Productions to keep the annual Golden Globe Awards at the network for at least another eight years.

Oh's latest leading role, in BBC America's critically acclaimed drama series "Killing Eve", for which she also serves as an executive producer, might just put her in the running for a second Golden Globe.

Awards shows have increasingly suffered from waning audiences, but the Globes has an edge on several fronts: it's considered to have a less formal, more freewheeling spirit (since it's staged as a banquet with an open bar), and it's also typically the first out of the gate in the new year.

Producers on Wednesday announced the co-hosts for the January 6 ceremony.

And that run of odd bedfellows is set to continue in 2019, thanks to newly tapped hosting pair Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh.

Facebook accused of giving access to users’ data
The engineer suggested shutting down Vine's access to the friends feature, to which Zuckerberg replied, "Yup, go for it". It deliberately made it harder for users to be aware of this happening in order to avoid bad PR, the MP stressed.

He was the 2015 Emmy Awards host, while Oh is a newcomer to handling emcee duties for a major ceremony.

Samberg is a former Saturday Night Live, cast member and a previous Golden Globe victor for television comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

The HFPA changed the title of the honorary position previous year from Miss Golden Globe to Golden Globe Ambassador, seeking to make the position more gender-neutral. Last year's host was comedian and late-night star Seth Meyers. That was down slightly from the 2017 show to a six-year demo low, but still ranked as the most watched awards show since the Oscars. The show will air live coast to coast starting at 8 p.m. ET/PT from the Beverly Hilton.

"We're excited to welcome Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg as co-hosts of Hollywood's Party of the Year", HFPA president Meher Tatna said in a statement.
