Can Rachel Brosnahan win back-to-back Golden Globes for Best TV Comedy Actress? No one’s done it in 10 years

Can Rachel Brosnahan win back-to-back Golden Globes for Best TV Comedy Actress? No one’s done it in 10 years
Rachel Brosnahan is the early favorite to claim her second straight Best TV Comedy/Musical Actress Golden Globe for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” according to our combined odds. And a win would be notable in more ways than one: Brosnahan would be the first person to defend her title in the category in 10 years.

The last person to go back to back was Tina Fey (“30 Rock”) in 2009. Since then, it’s been single wins, usually for stars in first-year shows: Toni Collette (“United States of Tara”), Laura Linney (“The Big C”), Laura Dern (“Enlightened”), Lena Dunham(“Girls”), Amy Poehler (“Parks and Recreation”), Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin”), Rachel Bloom (“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”), Tracee Ellis Ross (“Black-ish”) and Brosnahan.

2019 Oscars May Go Without a Host

2019 Oscars May Go Without a Host
The Academy is scrambling to find a host for the Oscars next year in the wake of Kevin Hart's abrupt departure. The comedian and actor was hired and, within a day, departed the gig after some previous anti-gay tweets of his resurfaced. The Academy asked Hart to apologize, he refused and instead, walked away, even though he then issued an apology anyway. Whatever the case could have been, as it stands, Hollywood's biggest night is without a host. And it may stay that way.

According to a new report, the Oscars may go without a host at all. Instead, according to an anonymous source close to the situation, The Academy Awards will go with "a bunch of huge celebs, something 'SNL' style, and buzzy people" sharing duties throughout the night. At this point, they may not have many other options. Going without a host would be a virtually unprecedented move,

Who Should Host the Oscars Now? Hollywood Offers Suggestions
Kevin Hart has stepped down as the host of the Oscars. And it’s hard to imagine who right away would want to jump in and take this often thankless job. But someone has to do it.

Short of getting a reliable former host like Billy Crystal, Ellen DeGeneres or Jimmy Kimmel, many film critics and Oscars fans online have thrown out suggestions, which includes Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who have hosted the Golden Globes to great success for several years in a row. Key & Peele, were also a popular suggestion. Hannah Gadsby is another name that has popped up as well.

He announced, “I told MTV I was going to need a little security. I think they took it a little literally.” This was the opening joke. Of his monologue. Hosting an award show.

Golden Globes: If Sandra Oh Wins for ‘Killing Eve’ She’ll Be the First Asian Actor to Snag Multiple Awards

Golden Globes: If Sandra Oh Wins for ‘Killing Eve’ She’ll Be the First Asian Actor to Snag Multiple Awards
It’s a good day to be Sandra Oh, and it could get so much better come January 6. On Friday, the day after she was announced as the Golden Globes co-host alongside “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star Andy Samberg, Oh received a nomination in the Best TV Drama Actress category for her lead role on “Killing Eve.”

The timing of the two back-to-back announcements feels particularly fortuitous, and Oh is currently the odds-on favorite to win in that category, just edging out Julia Roberts in Amazon’s “Homecoming.” Oh has received acclaim for playing the dogged and quirky MI5 agent Eve Polastri in the BBC America series from “Fleabag” creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and even received a groundbreaking Emmy nomination this year. She ultimately lost out to Claire Foy for “The Crown.”

A win this time around would make up for that Emmys disappointment and would make Oh — who is Korean-Canadian — the first

Never have we been more excited for the Golden Globes.  Yes, we nearly died when Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted three years in a row (2013 through 2015), and it's always fun to watch Ricky Gervais skewer Hollywood in that giggly way only he can, and Seth Meyers and Jimmy Fallon are masters at their hosting craft, but this year honestly and unexpectedly takes the cake.  NBC just announced that the hosts for the 2019 ceremony, taking place on January 6, will be Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg, a duo best known for their brief but memorable presentation of Best TV Comedy Director at the 2018 Emmys. You might recall Oh tearing up the envelope with the winner inside and nervously shouting that the winner was both...

Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg Announced as 2019 Golden Globes Hosts

With just a few weeks until one of the big award shows of the year, the Golden Globes cut their host search pretty close, but still ended up with one of the year’s most pleasant surprises.

On the eve of the announcements of who the 2019 ceremony would be honoring, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced that that Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg would be presiding over the January festivities.

IndieWire’s Ben Travers predicts that Oh had a very strong chance of being at the Globes anyway, after her acclaimed role as Eve Polastri on the BBC America surprise hit “Killing Eve.” Former “SNL” star Samberg has recently returned to the NBC family, with “Brooklyn Nine Nine” joining the network’s lineup earlier this year. While his role as Jake Peralta on the former Fox sitcom likely won’t be in contention this year, he did win for the role back in 2014. Most recently,
