Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg Will Host the 2019 Golden Globes

Canadian Sandra Oh will also host the 76th annual Golden Globes, along with Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Andy Samberg, from Beverly Hills, Calif., on January 6. Last year's host was comedian and late-night star Seth Meyers.

Curiously, the Hollywood Foreign Press doesn't consider foreign-language films for best film, so Alfonso Cuaron's acclaimed Netflix drama Roma was left out of the Globes' top category. Oh won a best actress Golden Globe in 2006 for her performance on Grey's Anatomy. They were announced as hosts to the January 6 (January 7 NZT) ceremony, to be broadcast live on USA network NBC. The film also earned nominations for Best Picture (Musical or Comedy), Best Actor (Musical or Comedy) for Mortensen, and Best Supporting Actor (Ali).

Samberg hosted the Emmy Awards in 2015, but it will be Oh's first time hosting a major awards show. And, of course, last year's comedy victor, "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", whose second season premiered Wednesday, scored expected nods for series, star Rachel Brosnahan and supporting actress Alex Borstein.

The Golden Globe Awards, like many shows of its kind, is caught up in a downward spiral of viewer indifference.

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.

For even the often-quirky selections of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, a collection of 88 mostly less-known freelance film journalists, the strong support for Vice (which arrives in theatres on December 25) was a surprise. Allen Shapiro, Executive Chairman of dick clark productions, Mike Mahan, CEO of dick clark productions and Barry Adelman, Executive VP of Television at dick clark productions, will serve as executive producers.

This was among four nominations received by The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. The pair presented an award together at the Emmy Awards in September. "Brooklyn Nine-Nine", on which he stars as Detective Jake Peralta, was canceled by Fox in May after five seasons. The real thrill for FX was that its transgender drama "Pose" won nominations for best drama series and its sensational star, Billy Porter, who had more quotable lines of dialogue than any actor in any TV show this year. NBC picked it up a few days later.
