Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg to host the Golden Globe Awards
With the Golden Globes nominations announcement Thursday morning, the Killing Eve star and the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star have been announced as co-hosts of the Jan. 6 ceremony on NBC. Both Oh and Samberg have something in common: they both won Golden Globes during the first year of their shows, Oh in 2006 for Grey's Anatomy and Samberg in 2014 for Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The pair also co-presented an Emmy award in September. “Sandra and Andy are the perfect choices to host this world-class event,” said Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks, NBC Entertainment co-chairmen. “They bring wit, charm and style to a room filled with the very best of film and television. It’s sure to be another unforgettable fun-filled night.”
Film Academy president lauds choice of Kevin Hart, defends against naysayers who consider hosting the Oscars a thankless job
“First of all, he’s a very kind of warm and loving and lovable person,” Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences president John Bailey told Variety. “He’s also wanted to do this for many years. He’s been very clear how he felt about it and that’s very heartening to us.” As for those who believe the job is thankless, Bailey said: “I’m sorry, but there are a lot of people like Kevin who have dreamed of doing this. Life is a risk. You go out on that stage and you don’t know whether you’re going to bomb or be a smash. It’s like the opening night of a Broadway play except we only play for one night.”
Louis CK's heckler: "He looked shell shocked" when I told him "get your d*ck out"
Source: The Cut
Klaire Randall just happened to be sitting in the audience with her boyfriend Sunday night at the Comedy Cellar when Louis CK took the stage. "The first thing I thought when they announced Louis’s name was was that it had to be a joke," Randall tells The Cut. "I was pissed off. I looked at my boyfriend and we had this moment of can we get up and leave right now, or do we sit through it and give this guy a chance? I had read the articles about C.K. and I’d read his apology but I hadn’t done a deep dive on it. I just knew it generally all seemed skeezy, and that it’s wrong for anyone who uses their power to make women feel uncomfortable." Randall says when she shouted at CK, "he looked shell-shocked. He looked directly at me, full eye contact and said ‘WHAT!?’ I repeat myself like, 'get your f*cking d*ck out.' At that point, the crowd was jeering, there were a few boos coming from a few people. And before I knew it, a Cellar staff member came over at our table and put a hand on my boyfriend’s shoulder. He said 'you can’t heckle the comedians,' and motioned toward the door. We already wanted to leave, so were happy to stand up and walk out on our own." Randall says she doesn't regret calling him out: "All I could think at the time was that I wouldn’t be able to forgive myself if I had this opportunity to publicly call out an abuser to his face and I just quietly sat there," she says. "I was just thinking about every woman I know who has been sexually assaulted, sexually harassed or bullied in some way or another." ALSO: Randall says her Comedy Cellar exit "was not a forceful getting-kicked-out, but it was heavily implied."
