Sandra Oh, Andy Samberg named as Golden Globe hosts

Golden Globes

They were announced as hosts to the January 6 (January 7 NZT) ceremony, to be broadcast live on U.S. network NBC. The trendy "Twilight Zone"-inspired drama "Homecoming" scored 3 nominations, for best drama series and for lead actors Julia Roberts (who missed a drama film actress nod for "Ben Is Back") and up-and-comer Stephan James as therapist and patient in a spooky Florida rehab facility".

Let's not forget Donald Glover: He was nominated for Best Television Performance by an Actor - Musical/Comedy for his work on Atlanta.

Oh is coming off a surprise hit in BBC America's Killing Eve, for which she serves as executive producer and star.

The show will be up against queer favourite Killing Eve for best TV drama, which also saw Sandra Oh get a nomination for best actress in a TV drama.

"We are thrilled to have Sandra and Andy co-hosting the Golden Globes", said Mike Mahan, Executive Producer, and CEO, dick clark productions. "This innovative pairing sets the ideal tone for the most entertaining awards celebration of the year".

The Golden Globes, chosen by the small Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), the first major ceremony in Hollywood's long awards season, will be handed out at a ceremony in Beverly Hills on Jan 6.

Actor, Limited Series or Movie Made for Television: Antonio Banderas, "Genius: Picasso"; Daniel Bruhl, "The Alienist"; Darren Criss, "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story"; Benedict Cumberbatch, "Patrick Melrose"; Hugh Grant, "A Very English Scandal". But when nominations come out and one of the best shows, let alone best comedies, on TV isn't nominated, I'm not sure what to call that.

FX continued its streak as the premium basic cable channel with expected nominations for the "Versace" limited series and its stars, Emmy victor Darren Criss, Penelope Cruz and Edgar Ramirez.

While some critics have taken issue with Green Book for relying on outdated racial tropes, its once flagging Oscar campaign has lately received a boost with both better ticket sales and accruing awards love.

Film and television are audiovisual mediums, so naturally, the music world has an impact on the biggest movies and TV shows.

With the Golden Globes promo, Fandango is hoping to turn first-time FandangoNow users into repeat visitors. And I know you are dying to tweet about it. The news comes just a little over a month before the actual award show. Its own Golden Age has passed and now seems quaintly irrelevant.

We've compiled a list of some of the snubs that we were shocked by this morning!
