Our TV critic’s notebook on NBC’s 2019 Golden Globe Awards: 

From the hosts to the presenters to the winners, our take on the best, the worst, the exciting (and boring) moments of the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards. 

A couple of hosts “Killing” it

When NBC announced that “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star Andy Samberg and “Killing Eve” nominee Sandra Oh were co-hosting the show, it was one of those moments where I first said “huh,” and then I quickly said, “of course!” And the adorable odd couple did not disappoint. From the moment they debuted on the red carpet, they set a chic and goofy tone for the night. Their shared opening monologue had a great barb about the Oscar hosting drama, and some adorable self-deprecating jokes about how they’re the nicest people in Hollywood.

Niceness was the theme of the night, as they “slammed” celebs in the audience with jabs about how “hot” and “talented” they are. It’s a sweet and refreshing way to kick off the new year, especially after many less-than stellar Globes hosted by Ricky Gervais. It may have been a bit awkward in parts, but when you’re nice and awkward, it’s easier to forgive.
