  • Andy Samberg appeared on NBC’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and discussed co-hosting the 76th Golden Globes with “Killing Eve” star Sandra Oh, who he briefly met while presenting at the 2018 Emmys. The pair reconnected days before hosting the Golden Globes.
  • The “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star said that he cried backstage after Oh took home the award for best performance by an actress in a drama television series for her role as Eve Polastri.
  • In addition to her 2006 Globe for supporting actress for “Grey’s Anatomy,” this year’s win makes Oh the first woman of Asian descent to win multiple Golden Globes.
  • Samberg said that Oh is “so warm and magnetic and I fell so into her energy,” so he got emotional.
  • “I started crying,” Samberg said. “I was like, ‘She’s been working on this for the last four days I’ve known her!’ I gave her boyfriend a big hug and was like, ‘We did it!'”
