Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg to host 76th Golden Globe Awards

Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg to host 76th Golden Globe Awards

While hosting the Academy Awards may be the job that virtually no one except for Kevin Hart wants this year, the Golden Globes tends to be more of an openly accept gig.

Nominees for the 76th annual Golden Globes Awards will be announced Thursday morning, and both "A Star Is Born" and "Mary Poppins Returns" could be in for a big morning. And in 2015, Samberg hosted the Emmy awards to generally positive reviews.

"We're excited to welcome Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg as co-hosts of Hollywood's Party of the Year", Hollywood Foreign Press Association President, Meher Tatna, said in press release Wednesday.

Oh is now riding high on the critical and ratings success of her new series, BBC America's "Killing Eve".

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.

Samberg won two Golden Globes in 2014 for Brooklyn Nine-Nine, for best comedy actor and as a producer.

Samberg is a two-time Golden Globe Award victor for Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Oh won a Golden Globe in 2006 for her performance on Grey's Anatomy.

Produced by dick clark productions in association with the HFPA, the Golden Globe Awards are viewed in more than 210 territories worldwide. The Golden Globes led NBC to the nightlong win in total viewers despite National Football League playoff competition. 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. The show will air live coast to coast starting at 8 p.m. ET/PT from the Beverly Hilton.

For his work on "SNL", Samberg earned an Emmy Award and six additional nominations.
