Canadian actress Sandra Oh and US comedian Andy Samberg will co-host the awards show.

He added: 'They bring wit, charm and style to a room filled with the very best of film and television.

"Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg were unexpectedly fun together presenting at the Emmys and now I am even more excited for the #GoldenGlobes", another person said.

The two celebrities will be first-time hosts for the Golden Globes, which honour both television and film.

Samberg and Oh did a test run as co-presenters at the Primetime Emmy Awards in September, which aired on NBC.

This is only the second time the Golden Globes has been hosted by a duo, following the three-year stint of Samberg's former "Saturday Night Live" colleagues Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Oh won a Golden Globe in 2006 for best supporting actress in series, limited series or motion picture made for television. And in 2015, Samberg hosted the Emmy awards to generally positive reviews.

Curiously, the Hollywood Foreign Press doesn't consider foreign-language films eligible for best film, so Alfonso Cuaron's Netflix drama "Roma" will be left out of the Globes' top category. The new deal will extend the association through 2026, beginning with next year's 76th annual awards.

This announcement comes just one day before the nominees for next year's Globes will be announced, with both Samberg and Oh likely contenders for their work on Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Killing Eve, respectively.

According to E! the 2019 show will debut a new award 'measuring 11.5 inches tall, 3.75 inches wide and 3.75 inches deep.

Oh spent 10 seasons on Grey's Anatomy as Dr. Cristina Yang, but more recently she has been starring in the hit BBC series Killing Eve. NBC picked it up a few days later.
