Golden Globes Co-Host Sandra Oh 'Not Interested' in Trump Bashing

Golden Globes Co-Host Sandra Oh 'Not Interested' in Trump Bashing

Harrison Ford, Lupita Nyong'o, Gary Oldman, Sam Rockwell, and Halle Berry are among the stars set to present awards at the 76th annual Golden Globes Awards telecast on January 6.

The "Killing Eve" star, who made history a year ago as the first Asian woman nominated for the Emmy award for best actress in a drama series, has long spoken out about the importance of diversity and representation in Hollywood, and the paucity of roles for Asian actors.

"How many gazillions of people have seen 'Black Panther' and 'Crazy Rich Asians'?" she continued, referring to the massive box office success of the two movies, both featuring ensemble casts consisting primarily of actors of color.

"After Trump's election and #MeToo, people felt like they had to speak up", said Tim Gray, awards editor at Hollywood publication Variety.

Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg will host the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards, which airs 8 p.m. -11 p.m. ET Sunday on NBC.

"I think everybody is exhausted of politics and maybe for one night we can have fun and not worry about the state of the world", Tatna said. "I think people are ready and could use a little smile".

Last year's Golden Globes were marked by celebrities turning out en masse in black in solidarity with the #MeToo sexual harassment scandal that was roiling Hollywood.

"I'm not interested in [talking about Trump] at all", the Killing Eve star told the Hollywood Reporter.

Oh later noted that she doesn't have any interest in talking about President Trump at all.

He said, "It's going to be great". And then there's Disney's big, heartwarming Mary Poppins Returns, which has grossed $119 million domestically so far and has four Golden Globe nominations, including Best Motion Picture (Musical/Comedy), and was named in AFI's 2018 top films of the year. "Not to ignore anything, but we spend so much time every day wallowing in a lot of things that are happening in our world that are really depressing, and with good reason - that stuff needs to be paid attention to", Samberg added.

While they have never worked together before, the pair showcased their potential for award show chemistry as they presented together at the 2018 Emmy Awards.

The 24-year-old joins fellow actors Chadwick Boseman, Jessica Chastain, Taraji P Henson, Allison Janney, Gary Oldman, Sam Rockwell and Octavia Spencer on the list of award presenters for Sunday night's ceremony at the Beverly Hilton.
