Oh and Samberg will "bring wit, charm and style to a room filled with the very best of film and television", Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks, co-chairmen of NBC Entertainment, said in a statement. "It's sure to be another unforgettable fun-filled night".

While the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, a collection of 88 mostly lesser-known freelance film journalists, is known for its quirkier selections and categorizations ("Get Out" past year slotted in as a comedy), few saw the resounding success of "Vice" coming.

The film's Golden Globe nominations include: Best Motion Picture - Drama; Best Original Song (All The Stars) by Kendrick Lamar, Mark Spears, Anthony Tiffith, Solana Rowe and Al Shuckburgh; and also Best Original Score by Ludwig Goransson.

The pair had presented the Emmy for Best Direction of a Comedy Series in September, and had a crackling comedic spark.

Jim Carrey: No stranger to the Golden Globes - he's has won two - some may have been surprised to hear Carrey's name called in the best comedic actors category for his role in the Showtime series "Kidding". And Samberg is no stranger to hosting award ceremonies: He also emceed the Emmys back in 2015.

The ratings for last January's broadcast, hosted by Seth Meyers and graced with an impassioned speech by Oprah Winfrey, dipped 5 per cent with approximately 19 million viewers.

Marvel has made a heroic push for the film in recent months by hiring Oscar strategist Cynthia Swartz to lead the campaign for awards season with the support of Marvel President Kevin Feige and a "significant awards season budget".

The other movies nominated for a Golden Globe in the best musical or comedy category are Crazy Rich Asians, Green Book, The Favourite and Disney's Mary Poppins Returns. Then again, the HFPA also snubbed him for the first "Creed" as well (Stallone won that year for the film). This year, not only did she earn a nomination in the comedic best actress category, so did Candice Bergen, whose series, "Murphy Brown", returned to TV this year.

The three-hour Golden Globes ceremony will air live on NBC from Beverly Hills. The Golden Globes led NBC to the nightlong win in total viewers despite National Football League playoff competition.
