“Killing Eve” leading lady Sandra Oh and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star Andy Samberg will co-host the 76th Golden Globes Awards. The duo were named by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association as this year’s ceremony hosts.
“Sandra and Andy are the perfect choices to host this world-class event,” Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks, co-chairmen, NBC Entertainment, said in a statement. “They bring wit, charm and style to a room filled with the very best of film and television. It’s sure to be another unforgettable fun-filled night.”
The two stars won praise on social media for their chemistry presenting at this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards.
Sandra is fresh off a surprise hit in BBC America’s “Killing Eve,” for which she serves as executive producer and star. She won a Golden Globe in 2006 for actress in a supporting role in a series for “Grey’s Anatomy.”
Samberg is a former writer and player on “Saturday Night Live,” and a member of satire comedy group the Lonely Island. He’s a two-time Golden Globe winner, one for performance by an actor and one as a producer on “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” which won for best television series, musical or comedy.
