They were announced Wednesday as hosts to the January 6 ceremony, to be broadcast live on NBC.
Leslie Mann ("This Is 40"), and Christian Slater ("Mr. Robot") announced the nominations for the awards, which will air Sunday, Jan. 6 at 8 p.m. on NBC and will be hosted by Sandra Oh ("Grey's Anatomy") and Andy Samberg ("Brooklyn 99"). And since the Golden Globes span both TV and film, there's double the potential for outrage over perceived snubs or the inclusion of seeming outliers. Well, they did nominate Donald Glover for Best Actor in a comedy series, so they do remember that Atlanta exists.
Oh is coming off a surprise hit in BBC America's Killing Eve, for which she serves as executive producer and star.
"Sandra and Andy are the flawless choices to host this world-class event", said Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks, co-chairmen of NBC Entertainment. However, they both feature dark and tragic subject matter, so they're not entirely comedic, even if they're filled with, say, flashes of Freddie Mercury's brilliantly flippant and sarcastic wit and life-affirming moments within both films. "It's sure to be another unforgettable fun-filled night".
We are pleased to confirm that Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh will be co-hosting this year's 76th #GoldenGlobes! "This innovative pairing sets the ideal tone for the most entertaining awards celebration of the year".
Even though she's been there and done that with the Globes, she's still positioned to make history if she wins again.
The Golden Globe Awards, like many shows of its kind, is caught up in a downward spiral of viewer indifference.
Damien Chazelle's Neil Armstrong drama "First Man" remains a big awards season question mark, and the Golden Globes didn't really help to shine a light on which way it might go.
Once again, female directors didn't get any nominations this year, despite star Natalie Portman's criticizing the HFPA for ignoring women behind the camera when she announced the 2017 nominees.
TNT received surprise nominations for the tiresome "The Alienist" - for limited series and for its star, the German actor Daniel Brühl. The pair presented an award together at the Emmy Awards in September.
