Golden Globes 2018 was special for Sam as he won the statuette for best supporting role in ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’. The fine actor has again been nominated in the same category for his role as former US President George W Bush in ‘Vice’. Jessica has also won the statuette in 2013 for her role in ‘Zero Dark Thirty’.

Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg are set to co-host the event. While Samberg has previously hosted the MTV Movie Awards, the Spirit Awards and the Emmys, the 2019 Golden Globes will mark Oh's first time hosting an awards show.

Among other stars, Kaley Cuoco, Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Lupita Nyong’o, William H Macy, Justin Hartley and Sterling K Brown have been confirmed to present.

Meanwhile, Sandra Oh on her hosting gig said, "The job of being a host, it's really to be there to support all the nominees and those who take that platform to say whatever they want. I don't really think that [getting political] is for the hosts necessarily. You make it an open and safe place for whoever wants to use that platform to speak."

She continued, "I'm not interested in [talking about Trump] at all. What I'm interested in is pointing to actual real change."

Golden Globes will go live from the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, on Sunday, January 6 (January 7 morning in India).
