The Hulu series based on Margaret Atwood's novel has been an awards darling since the beginning, and even became the first streaming series to win the Golden Globe for best television series in its first year. He is a Golden Globe victor for "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" and the series, also a Golden Globe recipient for best comedy-musical, launches on NBC Jan. 10, four days after the Globes.
Samberg has previously hosted the Primetime Emmy Awards in 2015 and the Film Independent Spirit Awards in 2013.
Of course, Samberg and Oh already proved their chops back in September, when they co-presented an award at the Emmys and nailed their scripted banter - a moment that landed on our list of the broadcast's highlights. Oh is the first person of color to emcee the show.More news: British MP becomes first to reveal to parliament that he has HIV
The Golden Globe Awards, like many shows of its kind, is caught up in a downward spiral of viewer indifference.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association will unveil their nominations beginning at 8:15 a.m. EST.
The Americans, Bodyguard, Homecoming, Killing Eve, and Pose received nominees for Best Television Series - Drama, while Barry, The Good Place, Kidding, The Kominsky Method, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel were nominated for Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy. Yet for an industry still grappling with issues pertaining to inclusion, and an award-show apparatus wrestling with a movie business increasingly reliant on superheroes and science fiction, an Oscar nod to "Black Panther" would, indeed, represent a noteworthy gesture, in more ways than one, toward Hollywood's new realities.
The original push centered on "The Dark Knight", Christopher Nolan's sequel to "Batman Begins", which failed to receive a best-picture nomination (although Heath Ledger was honored, posthumously, for his role as the Joker).
The Golden Globes will be held in Beverly Hills on January 6. NBC picked it up a few days later.
