If, for some reason, you had any doubts about just how fun Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg would be as hosts of the 2019 Golden Globes then these promos will ease your mind.
Released by NBC, the two spots feature Samberg and Oh, who were first paired at the 2018 Emmys, the promos feature Samberg introducing himself and his “best friend Sandra Oh” before they fail miserably at a best friend secret handshake.
“Best friends!” Samberg says excitedly after the handshake bit. “We just met,” Oh deadpans.
Give her a Golden Globe for that line delivery!
Both Oh and Samberg have taken home Golden Globes before. Oh won for Grey’s Anatomy in 2006 and she’s nominated again for Killing Eve this year. Samberg took home the trophy in 2014 for Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The comedy makes its move from Fox to NBC on Thursday, Jan. 10.
In another spot, Samberg and Oh just say a bunch of words with an echo effect to really make them seem special. Those words include “celebrities,” “accolades,” “dogs,” “flightless birds” and our two favorites, which make no sense and that’s why they’re great: “dribblin'” and “drabblin’.”
Now, we’re not sure about you, but don’t you want to see Oh pop up on Brooklyn Nine-Nine? She could play her Killing Eve character, MI-5 officer Eve Polastri. A case brings her to New York, where she meets the detectives…hijinks ensue. No need to pay us for that idea, just make it happen!
“We’re excited to welcome Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg as co-hosts of Hollywood’s Party of the Year,” Meher Tatna, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, said in a statement when the hosts were announced. “Both Golden Globe Award recipients have continually showcased their talents in film and television, and we can’t wait see what their undeniable chemistry will bring to the Golden Globes stage.”
The Golden Globes air live Sunday, Jan. 6 on NBC.
