(Newser) – The Hollywood Foreign Correspondents Association has picked a new duo to host next year's Golden Globes. Killing Eve star Sandra Oh and Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Andy Samberg will present the Jan. 6 award show, reports Variety. NBC co-chairmen George Cheeks and Paul Telegdy released a statement calling the pair the "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," the co-chairmen said. The AV Club notes that Oh and Samberg —the first duo to host the show since Tina Fey and Amy Poehler finished their three-year run in 2015—won praise earlier this year with their charming presentation of the Emmy for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series.
