Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg to Co-Host 2019 Golden Globe Awards

NBC announced on Wednesday that "Killing Eve" star Sandra Oh and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" star Andy Samberg will co-host the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards. So NBC, which airs the ceremony January 6, will reap no official recognition, just ad dollars, cementing the impression that the only events worth watching on network TV are those that are broadcast live (the Super Bowl, the Oscars, the Thanksgiving Day parade, musicals such as "Jesus Christ Superstar").

Ever since the news was reported, fans have been expressing their excitement on Twitter. Golden Globes-nominated movies now available on FandangoNow are "Black Panther", "BlacKkKlansman", "Crazy Rich Asians", "Isle of Dogs", "Incredibles 2", "Eighth Grade" (for actress Elsie Fisher), "Tully" (for actress Charlize Theron) and "A Quiet Place" (for music score). Canadian actress Sandra Oh and USA comedian Andy Samberg will co-host the awards show.

The HFPA displayed their preference for global fare with nominations for the sleek and witty BBC America series "Killing Eve".

The Ryan Coogler-directed film has become the first superhero movie to be nominated for best picture in the drama category at the Golden Globes. She didn't win but made a big splash by bringing her parents to the awards show.

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.

Movies about race, politics and music dominated nominations for the Golden Globe awards on Thursday, setting the stage for the long Hollywood awards season leading up to the Oscars in February. So they didn't forget Atlanta, one of the absolute best shows on television, they just...didn't nominate it. Look, I love The Good Place, but this was not their best year. Samberg, meanwhile, is a two-time Golden Globe victor for his work on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, taking home statuettes in both the acting and producing categories. "It's sure to be another unforgettable fun-filled night".

Samberg has previously hosted the Primetime Emmy Awards in 2015 and the Film Independent Spirit Awards in 2013.

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

The deal means, for example, that Disney/Marvel's "Black Panther" - nominated in three Golden Globes categories - will be available to rent in HD for $2 (normally $3.99) and to buy in HD for $10 (normally $19.99). The veteran character actor delivered a powerful performance as Jackson Maine's brother in "A Star Is Born", which many still think will earn the 74-year-old his first ever Oscar nomination.
