Female Directors Left Out of 2019 Golden Globe Nominations

Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg to Co Host 2019 Golden Globe Awards

Sandra Oh, Andy Samberg to co-host Globes

It's official: Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh have been tapped to host the 2019 Golden Globes!

Ever since the news was reported, fans have been expressing their excitement on Twitter.

The Golden Globes are handed out at an informal gala dinner where the champagne flows and celebrities roast each other with inside barbs and make topical and political jokes.

We're excited to welcome Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg as co-hosts of Hollywood's Party of the Year. Also, several nominated TV shows aren't available on FandangoNow, including Netflix's "The Kominsky Method" and "Bodyguard"; Amazon's "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" and "Homecoming"; and BBC America's "Killing Eve".

Samberg is most well-known for his time on Saturday Night Live, starring on Brooklyn Nine-Nine and for being part of the comedy-rap trio The Lonely Island.

There's no such thing as a sure thing when it comes to the mercurial Hollywood Foreign Press Association and its Golden Globe nominations, but this year saw a number of surprises, like the dominance of Adam McKay's Dick Cheney film "Vice", and a number of truly shocking exclusions. It will compete for best drama series; Sandra Oh will compete against Roberts, Elisabeth Moss of "The Handmaid's Tale", Keri Russell of "The Americans" and Caitriona Balfe of "Outlander" for best actress in that category.

Oh won a 2006 Golden Globe for Grey's Anatomy.

"Vice" scored six nominations, including Best Screenplay and Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy, while "Versace" scored four, including Best Television Limited Series and Best Actor for Darren Criss. So they didn't forget Atlanta, one of the absolute best shows on television, they just...didn't nominate it. Look, I love The Good Place, but this was not their best year. As the first major award show following the Harvey Weinstein revelations and subsequent launch of the #MeToo movement, the usually more frivolous ceremony had an atypical edge of seriousness.

The ratings for last January's broadcast, hosted by Seth Meyers and graced with an impassioned speech by Oprah Winfrey, dipped 5 per cent with approximately 19 million viewers.

In most cases when a ceremony has two hosts, they are longtime friends or an onscreen duo - or both - like Fey and Poehler at the Globes, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin at the Oscars and Colin Jost and Michael Che at the Primetime Emmys.

The 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards air Sunday, Jan. 9 at 8/7c on NBC. NBC picked it up a few days later.
