The news comes from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), which founded the awards ceremony in 1944. In 2017, Meryl Streep's powerful onstage criticism of Donald Trump's rhetoric helped set the tone for a tense relationship between the president and Hollywood, but co-host Sandra Oh has promised that this year will be different.

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.

Canadian Korean Actress Sandra Oh is one of the co-hosts of the program, and Asians are nominated in several categories.

"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. 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.

The hosts interviewed each other for The Hollywood Reporter; Oh said that "Trump bashing" will not be on the agenda for the evening.

Best Picture - Musical or Comedy is more of a toss-up, but Green Book is the slight favorite.

"It's going to be great".

Aside from the stars being presenters in the show, Black Panther is also receiving nominations in the categories of Best Original Score, Best Original Song, and Best Drama.

The top category of Best Picture - Drama is nearly universally expected to go to A Star Is Born, which was immediately considered the awards season movie to beat after a rapturous response at the Toronto International Film Festival. Both Oh and Samberg have won Golden Globes before, Oh for Grey's Anatomy, Samberg for Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
