The Hollywood Foreign Press Association made room for one more honoree as part of Thursday's Golden Globes nominations announcement.

Canadian actress Sandra Oh and United States comedian Andy Samberg will co-host the 2019 Golden Globe Awards in January, organisers said on Wednesday.

NBC confirmed Oh and Samberg would be hosting this year's awards earlier this morning via a statement credited to Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks, co-chairmen of NBC Entertainment, who extolled the virtues of their new hosts.

Samberg is a former Saturday Night Live, cast member and a previous Golden Globe victor for television comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

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". And in 2015, Samberg hosted the Emmy awards to generally positive reviews.

Samberg and Oh have something in common - they both won Golden Globes in the first year their primetime series were eligible - Samberg in 2014 when then-freshman "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" was named best comedy-musical series, and Oh in 2006 for ABC's "Grey's Anatomy". Samberg has been starring in the ever-wonderful Brooklyn Nine-Nine since 2013, but this year saw the sitcom canceled by Fox, only to be brought back to life for a sixth season by NBC, which also airs the Golden Globes. "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".

Showbusiness awards organisers have been under pressure in recent years to diversify hosts and nominees to include more women and people of colour.

For his work on "SNL", Samberg earned an Emmy Award and six additional nominations.
