Sandra Oh, Andy Samberg to co-host Globes

The Golden Globes nominees are announced

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 is now riding high on the critical and ratings success of her new series, BBC America's "Killing Eve".

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.

'Sandra and Andy are the ideal choices to host this world-class event, ' Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks, co-chairmen, NBC Entertainment, said in a statement.

The actors are both Golden Globe winners themselves.

Robben: I will leave Bayern at end of the season
Robben also scored an 89th-minute victor in 2013 Champions League final against Dortmund to finish the season with the treble. Dutch Bayern forward Arjen Robben said that leaving the club where he played for nearly ten years, according to Omnisport .

"Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg were unexpectedly fun together presenting at the Emmys and now I am even more excited for the #GoldenGlobes", another person said. Samberg has been starring in the ever-wonderful Brooklyn Nine-Nine since 2013, but this year saw the sitcom canceled by Fox, only to be brought back to life for a sixth season by NBC, which also airs the Golden Globes.

NBC has named the hosts of the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards. And in 2015, Samberg hosted the Emmy awards to generally positive reviews. Oh is the first person of color to emcee the show.

"Assembling" a hosting team is a riskier proposition as evident by the much-maligned team-up of Anne Hathaway and James Franco at the Oscars though Jenna Elfman and David Hyde Pierce received good marks for their Emmy emceeing stint. A year ago the show was helmed by Seth Meyers.

The ceremony, conducted by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, will be held on January 6. NBC picked it up a few days later.
