Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg to co-host 2019 Golden Globes

In addition to announcing which films and television shows will vie for its year-end awards, the HFPA has introduced a new lifetime achievement accolade aimed at recognizing "the highest level of achievement in the medium" of television, per HFPA president Meher Tatna during the nominations announcement.

Oh won a 2006 Golden Globe for Grey's Anatomy.

Nominations for the awards will be announced on Thursday and the televised ceremony on NBC will take place in Beverly Hills, California, on 6 January.

Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg are officially hosting the 2019 Golden Globes.

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

In an announcement on Wednesday, NBC Entertainment co-chairmen Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks called Oh and Samberg the "perfect choices" for the prestigious event. Add Golden Globes as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Golden Globes news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

"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.

The Golden Globes Awards honor the best of both worlds every year, with statuettes handed out to the cream of the crop in television and film. "This innovative pairing sets the ideal tone for the most entertaining awards celebration of the year". Oh, meanwhile, now stars (and serves as co-executive producer) on BBC America's "Killing Eve", for which she was nominated for Best Actress in a Drama at this year's Emmys. 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 on NBC at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
