Just hours before the Golden Globes nominations are announced on Dec. 6, the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. confirmed that past champs Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh will host the Jan. 6 ceremony. Both have emceed televised awards shows in the past. Samberg presided over the Emmys in 2015 while Oh oversaw the 2008 Genies (the Canadian version of the Oscars.) If their pairing at the recent Emmy Awards is anything to go by, viewers are in for a treat. Take a look at their riff as they make merry with the envelope mix-up at the 2017 Oscars.
Oh, who won the catch-all supporting category at the Globes in 2006, is all but certain to be a nominee this year for her starring role in the BBC America break-out hit “Killing Eve.” She lost the Emmy to Claire Foy (“The Crown) who is not eligible at the Globes. Oh’s strongest competition for Best TV Drama Actress is Oscar winner Julia Roberts, who made her series debut with Amazon’s intense psychological thriller “Homecoming.”
Samberg won his Golden Globe for “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” back in 2014, just a few months after the show started on FOX. When it was cancelled after five seasons, NBC picked it up for a sixth, which is scheduled to start on Jan. 10. That should make for some nice corporate synergy as Samberg uses the highest-rated awards show to tout his return to the peacock network where he got his start on “Saturday Night Live.”
