"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," said NBC co-chairmen Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks in a statement on Wednesday.

The party-like ceremony, hosted by the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. at the Beverly Hilton hotel, will honor the best in film and television and marks the official kickoff of the 2019 awards-show season.

The nominees will be announced early Thursday across 25 categories -- 14 in film and 11 in television -- and the winners are voted on by members of the HFPA.

"We're excited to welcome Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg as co-hosts of Hollywood's Party of the Year," said HFPA President Meher Tatna in a statement. "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."

Oh, who famously starred as Dr. Cristina Yang on ABC's "Grey's Anatomy," won a 2006 Golden Globe for performance by an actress in a supporting role in a series, limited series or motion picture made for television; a Screen Actors Guild Award for the role and five Emmy nominations for supporting actress in a drama.
