Sandra took home a Golden Globe in 2006 for her role as Dr. Cristina Yang in the still running ABC drama, Grey's Anatomy.

Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg have been announced as hosts of the 2019 Golden Globes.

While it is unclear if Samberg may be nominated in the Best Actor - Television Series Musical or Comedy category, many have speculated that Oh could be nominated for her work on Killing Eve.

"We're excited to welcome Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg as co-hosts of Hollywood's Party of the Year", Hollywood Foreign Press Association President, Meher Tatna, said in press release Wednesday. "They bring wit, charm, and style to a room filled with the very best of film and television".

The nominations will stream on the Globes' website as well as its Facebook page, beginning at 8:05 a.m. ET. The Golden Globes led NBC to the nightlong win in total viewers despite National Football League playoff competition.
