Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh to co-host 2019 Golden Globe Awards

And like every year, there is a slew of snubs and surprises when the Golden Globe Awards announced nominations in TV and film excellence.

Samberg is a two-time Golden Globe Award victor for Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Oh won a Golden Globe in 2006 for her performance on Grey's Anatomy.

"Honorees [will be] selected based on outstanding accomplishments as well as their impact and influence that their television career has had on industry and audiences", Tatna continued, adding that the honor will be the HFPA's first special achievement award since the inauguration of the DeMille award in 1952. It earned six nominations, including best comedy or musical, best actor and best director.

In most cases when a ceremony has two hosts, they are longtime friends or an onscreen duo - or both - like Fey and Poehler at the Globes, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin at the Oscars and Colin Jost and Michael Che at the Primetime Emmys.

The deal means, for example, that Disney/Marvel's "Black Panther" - nominated in three Golden Globes categories - will be available to rent in HD for $2 (normally $3.99) and to buy in HD for $10 (normally $19.99).

Screenplay, Motion Picture: Alfonso Cuaron, "Roma"; Deborah Davis and Tony McNamara, "The Favourite"; Barry Jenkins, "If Beale Street Could Talk"; Adam McKay, "Vice"; Nick Vallelonga, Brian Currie, Peter Farrelly, "Green Book". Back in 2016, Deadpool earned a nomination in the Best Musical or Comedy category.

Several well-regarded movies failed to get any recognition from the HFPA, including Steve McQueen's Widows, Paul Schrader's First Reformed, and Chloe Zhao's The Rider.

Bob Odenkirk: For the first time in four years, the "Better Call Saul" actor was not nominated in the best dramatic actor category.

Indeed, during the 2018 show, actress Natalie Portman took the group to task for ignoring female directors pointedly saying from the dais, "And here are all the male nominees". Only five women have ever been nominated for best director in the 76-year history of the Golden Globes - Barbra Streisand, Jane Campion, Sofia Coppola, Ava DuVernay, and Kathryn Bigelow.

Showbusiness awards organisers have been under pressure in recent years to diversify hosts and nominees to include more women and people of colour. Streisand is the only one to win, for Yentl in 1984.
