Actress Sandra Oh and comedian Andy Samberg will reunite onstage as hosts of the 2019 Golden Globe Awards, set to air January 6 on NBC.

"Sandra and Andy are the ideal choices to host this world-class event", said Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks, the co-chairmen of NBC Entertainment, in a statement.

She's expected to also get a nomination on Thursday when the list is released for her critically acclaimed role in the BBC show Killing Eve. The Golden Globes serve as the official kickoff to the 2019 awards season.

Samberg is a two-time Golden Globe victor for Brooklyn Nine-Nine, while Oh won a Globe in 2006 for her work on ABC's Grey's Anatomy. Oh, meanwhile, now stars (and serves as co-executive producer) on BBC America's "Killing Eve", for which she was nominated for Best Actress in a Drama at this year's Emmys.

"Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg were unexpectedly fun together presenting at the Emmys and now I am even more excited for the #GoldenGlobes", another person said.

This marks the second time a pair will host the show after a three year stint by Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. The new deal will extend the association through 2026, beginning with next year's 76th annual awards.

The Golden Globes had aired without a host for decades until NBC in 2010 tapped Ricky Gervais for the job.

The 2018 Golden Globe Awards telecast averaged a 5.0 rating in adults 18-49 and 19 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research, putting it ahead of every show on television from the previous 10 months in total viewers, since the prior year's Academy Awards.
