Canadian actress Sandra Oh and US comedian Andy Samberg will co-host the 2019 Golden Globe Awards in January, organizers said in a statement on Wednesday.

Oh and Samberg teamed up in September when they presented the Emmy Award for best director of a comedy, which went to Amy Sherman-Palladino of "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel".

With roughly a month to go until the Golden Globe Awards broadcast live from L.A.'s Beverly Hilton, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association have named this year's ceremony hosts.

Oh is now riding high on the critical and ratings success of her new series, BBC America's "Killing Eve". She won a Golden Globe in 2006 for actress in a supporting role in a series for Grey's Anatomy.

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.

The announcement that the Killing Eve star and Brooklyn Nine-Nine amusing man would host the evening was made Wednesday afternoon.

'Both Golden Globe Award recipients have continually showcased their talents in film and television, and we can't wait to see what their undeniable chemistry will bring to the Golden Globes stage'. The new deal will extend the association through 2026, beginning with next year's 76th annual awards. Oh is the first person of color to emcee the show. NBC has hosted the Globes broadcast for the last 23 years. Dick Clark Productions executive chairman Allen Shapiro, CEO Mike Mahan and EVP of television Barry Adelman will serve as executive producers. His cop comedy "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" makes its NBC premiere - after five seasons on Fox - on January 10, just four days after the Globes.
