Sandra Oh, Andy Samberg want lighter tone at Golden Globes
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Actress Sandra Oh says she wants to bring a lighter tone to the Golden Globes after last year’s awards show took a much more serious approach centered on the “MeToo” movement.
Oh said Wednesday that she and fellow host Andy Samberg will provide a “moment of joy” at the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California, on Sunday night. She and Samberg were first paired as award presenters during a comical set at the Emmys last year.
Last year, many dressed in black at the Golden Globes in solidarity with the victims of sexual harassment.
Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Meher Tatna says Sunday’s awards show might not be as politically charged as the previous year, but it will use its platform to honor Carol Burnett and Jeff Bridges with lifetime achievement awards.
