The hosts of the 2019 Golden Globes have been made official. Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh have been chosen to host the 76th edition of the awards show, according to a report by E! News.

In a statement released announcing the news, Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks, co-chairmen of NBC Entertainment, said Samberg and Oh are the "perfect choices to host this world-class event."

"They bring wit, charm, and style to a room filled with the very best of film and television. It's sure to be another unforgettable, fun-filled night."

Nominations for all of the categories including film and television will be announced on December 6.

The hosting announcement is among others that have come in the lead up to the release of the full nomination list. On November 14, Isan Elba, who is the daughter of actor Idris Elba and businesswoman and makeup artist Kim Elba, was tapped to be the Golden Globe Ambassador for 2019. Upon receiving the news, the 16-year-old Elba expressed how glad she was to receive the honor.

"My dad just sent me a text telling me I was the Golden Globe Ambassador. I was like, 'Are you sure?' Because I didn't even know how that process works. Is there a process? I'm really honored that they picked me, to say the least. It was literally awesome!"

The Golden Globe Awards will be airing at 8 p.m. ET on Jan. 6, 2019, on NBC.

In the announcement of the commencement of a relationship between NBC and the Golden Globes that will mean the ceremony will air on the network for the next eight years, Robert Greenblatt, Chairman of NBC Entertainment, said, "We look forward to airing the Golden Globe Awards on NBC for the next eight years at least. We've been the proud home of the Globes since 1996, and over those decades we're honored to have been part of its transformation into Hollywood's most joyous awards ceremony...This year will be no different."
