Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg Will Host the 2019 Golden Globes

Sandra Oh, Andy Samberg to co-host Globes

This year, she became the first actress of Asian ethnicity to receive an Emmy nomination for drama series lead, for Killing Eve.

Limited Series or Movie: The Alienist, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, Escape at Dannemora, Sharp Objects, and A Very English Scandal.

Benedict Cumberbatch was also shortlisted for playing Patrick Melrose in the Sky Atlantic drama of the same name based on Edward St Aubyn's novels, as was Thandie Newton, for Westworld.

Myriad factors are likely responsible for the Oscars' dwindling audience, but it's widely believed in industry circles that having more popular films in contention would help, providing casual viewers with a greater rooting interest that would theoretically boost tune-in.

Hollywood awards season kicked off on Thursday with the announcement of this year's Golden Globe nominations. They were announced Wednesday as hosts to the January 6 ceremony, to be broadcast live on NBC.

Sandra Oh, Andy Samberg to co-host Globes

Actor, TV Series, Musical or Comedy: Sacha Baron Cohen, "Who Is America"; Jim Carrey, "Kidding"; Michael Douglas, "The Kominsky Method"; Donald Glover, "Atlanta"; Bill Hader, "Barry". The benefits of having a show that's now airing helped Showtime's "Escape at Dannemora" win nominations for best limited series and for its gutsy star Patricia Arquette.

The nominations for the 2019 Golden Globes Awards were announced Thursday morning, and while a few films with local ties came out well, others underperformed expectations. It was still nominated for best screenplay, best director and best foreign language film.

Interested in Golden Globes? Both have taken home trophies at the ceremony in the past. Then again, the HFPA also snubbed him for the first "Creed" as well (Stallone won that year for the film).

And it also made room for one old favourite: Robert Redford, in what he has said may (or may not) be his final acting performance, received his 10th Globe nomination for The Old Man & the Gun.

Samberg and Oh had a memorable back-and-forth during the Primetime Emmys back in September, recreating the infamous 2017 Oscars flub in which Warren Beatty incorrectly announced that "La La Land" won for Best Picture, when the victor was, in fact, "Moonlight". Last year's host was comedian and late-night star Seth Meyers. While Oh does not appear to have any past award show hosting credits, Samberg has hosted both the Independent Spirit Awards and the Emmys.
