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

2018 Gotham Awards

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has finally found its Golden Globes hosts a month before the show, announcing Thursday that Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh will emcee the 76th edition of the awards.

While that may seem like a unusual coupling on paper, the duo were a highlight when presenting at the Emmy Awards together in September; an appearance which likely had a role in today's announcement.

The Golden Globes are given out by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and honor the best in television and movies.
