Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh to Host the 2019 Golden Globes. It's official: Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh have been tapped to host the 2019 Golden Globes! "Sandra and Andy are the perfect choices to host this world-class event," said Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks, the co-chairmen of NBC Entertainment, in a statement. "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." The duo follows previous hosts Seth Meyers (2018), Jimmy Fallon (2017) and Ricky Gervais (2016, 2012, 2011, 2010), as well as co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler (2015, 2014, 2013). Samberg is a two-time Golden Globe Award winner for Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Oh won a Golden Globe in 2006 for her performance on Grey's Anatomy. Nominations across all film and television categories will be announced Dec. 6. On Nov. 14, Isan Elba, daughter of actor Idris Elba and businesswoman/makeup artist Kim Elba, was named the 2019 Golden Globe Ambassador. "My dad just sent me a text telling me I was the Golden Globe Ambassador. I was like, 'Are you sure?' Because I didn't even know how that process works. Is there a process?" the 16-year-old scion told E! News moments after the news was shared. "I'm really honored that they picked me, to say the least. It was literally awesome!" Next year's ceremony will also include a new trophy, measuring 11.5 inches tall, 3.75 inches wide and 3.75 inches deep. The statuette weighs 7.8 lbs. and is made of brass, bronze and zinc. NBC will broadcast the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards live at 8 p.m. ET on Jan. 6, 2019. "We look forward to airing the Golden Globe Awards on NBC for the next eight years at least," Robert Greenblatt, Chairman of NBC Entertainment, previously said. "We've been the proud home of the Globes since 1996, and over those decades we're honored to have been part of its transformation into Hollywood's most joyous awards ceremony...This year will be no different."

Scott Eastwood had a very up close and personal run-in with a couple killer whales while paddle boarding down in Mexico -- and while it's incredible to see ... it's also kinda scary. Clint Eastwood's son posted a video of himself out in the waters of Baja California Sur, where he says he and a pal stopped for lunch before paddling out to sea after hearing some orcas in the water. Scott says they thought the wild beasts had disappeared by the time they got out there -- but, apparently, some whale noises and splashing around made 2 orcas circle back ... and, boy, did they get close. Check out the clip -- Scott and co. could've touched 'em if they wanted. It's a majestic scene for sure, but ya gotta wonder how risky the dip with the whales really was. While orcas aren't known to attack humans ... it's always a possibility they could. Worth it? Scott sure seems to think so. (TMZ)

Model Stella Maxwell gets massaged by snakes. Stella Maxwell is incorporating serpents into her self-care routine. The 28-year-old model, who has been linked to Kristen Stewart for the last two years, posted a series of Instagram images on Wednesday of herself posing with a boa constrictor with a python draped across her body. This isn't, however, an outtake from her latest fashion editorial -- but rather a snap from the Victoria's Secret Angel's recent trip to Serpentessa, a snake-based spa located in New York City whose celebrity fans include Whoopi Goldberg. "Entwine in Interspecies Love to Remember your Wild Divine Nature Get present, embrace Power and embody Pleasure [sic]," the model captioned the image, adding, "Thank you Serpentessa for the amazing experience." The spa's website explains that, "the boa constrictors' soothing undulations dispel any fears or concerns by toning and stimulating your body's vagus nerve, releasing endorphins and oxytocin. These feel-good hormones relieve stress, create pleasure and increase your emotional, physical and cognitive resiliencies in today's stressful world." A standard single-snake massage lasts an hour and 15 minutes and will set you back $297, while the two-snake massage that Maxwell appears to have gotten costs $535. And for the truly diehard cobra enthusiast, the company even offers a VIP Snake Immersion Retreat in upstate NY. (PageSix)

Kim Kardashian is trying like hell to justify Kanye West's slavery comment -- the problem is she's fully misquoting her husband, and clearly does NOT remember what he actually said. On the next episode of 'KUWTK,' she has a convo with Jonathan Cheban and Simon Huck about Kanye's May 1 appearance on "TMZ Live" ... and the convo is rife with falsehoods. First, Huck says "the way they edited that clip." It was not edited. Then there's Kim saying this, "If you listen to what he said, he said, 'Slavery was 400 years? If it's gonna be another 400 years, that sounds like a choice to me.' He didn't say, 'Slavery is a choice.'" Here's the clip, so you can listen to what Kanye actually said. There is clearly NO reference to a future 400 years. The actual quote -- "When you hear about slavery for 400 years, for 400 years??? That sounds like a choice. Like, you was there for 400 years and it's all of y'all?" Kim can have whatever interpretation she wants of Kanye's words. We get that. But, to say we edited him or misquoted him ... is a lie. On the 'KUWTK' episode she adds, "Kanye's slavery comment ... he never said that. That was just the headline." Okay. (TMZ)

The house that posed as Kris Jenner's home in "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" finally has a new real-life owner. The 7,843 sq. foot Studio City mansion recently sold for $5.25 million after being on and off the market for the past 11 years. Our real estate sources tell us it was originally put up for sale back in 2007. It passed through the hands of 19 agents and 9 brokerages before finally selling. Matt Altman, Josh Altman and Jacob Greene of The Altman Brothers Team and Brandon Assanti of Rodeo Realty most recently had the listing, and got the job done. If the pad looks familiar, it's probably because you've seen it on E!'s hit show a ton over the years ... which was always presented as the "Jenner House." As we've told you before, they just used it for exterior shots -- they don't use Kris' real home for security reasons. Either way, it's a good thing it finally sold, even at a $2 million loss. It was put back on the market last year for $7.895 million and has been featured on ton of shows like "Chelsea Lately," "True Blood," "American Horror Story" and in Victoria's Secret ads. (TMZ)

Jimmy Connors wants in on Tiger Woods-Phil Mickelson rematch. Tennis legend Jimmy Connors read my story about Tiger Woods wanting a rematch with Phil Mickelson and had a suggestion. Connors was at the Tiger-Phil match with his friend and former protege Andy Roddick, and tweeted "good fun and conversation -- if another match with Tiger & Phil -- I'd say -- maybe I should play Borg in a 3 of 5 set match for the warm-up -- your thoughts????" Jimbo was referring to his nemesis Bjrn Borg, who dominated tennis between 1974 and 1981, winning 11 Grand Slam titles and beating Connors twice in the Wimbledon finals. One fan replied, "Jimmy, you have to do it! In 1974, you said that you would follow Borg to the end of the Earth and beat him." Another said, "I would go to the end of the world to see that match." Maybe they aren't aware that Connors is 66 and Borg is 62. (PageSix)

Ice Cube is jacked up for Lamar Odom's dreams of a pro basketball comeback ... but he says there is a catch if the ex-Laker wants to make it in the BIG3 ... "He's still gotta try out like everybody else." Yup ... Ice Cube ain't doing the 2-time NBA champ any favors -- telling TMZ Sports, L.O.'s gotta work out just like the rest of the ballers who want in on his 3-on-3 league. But ... Cube tells us video he saw recently of Odom on the court and in the gym was promising -- and he's hopeful Lamar can make a squad. That said, Cube notes that Odom was training in a gym without elite players trying to shut him down -- and the game is A LOT different when there's a defense on the court. Cube's advice on the next steps Odom needs to take to make it? "Get healthy, get in shape and get to the combine!" Seems Lamar's already on it ... (TMZ)

Lance Armstrong is still pissed that fellow admitted cheater Alex Rodriguez has essentially been forgiven by society while he's still considered a villain -- since Lance says he's done WAY more to help people. "A-Rod didn't raise half a BILLION dollars and try to save people's lives," Armstrong said on the "Today" show ... obviously referring to the work he did with the Livestrong foundation. Armstrong then threw even more shade at the baseball player ... sarcastically saying, "Look, it's great when somebody hits home runs and maybe does an event here and there for the Boys & Girls Club." Armstrong has previously griped about A-Rod ... telling "Freakonomics Radio" back in July, "The one key thing is that Alex Rodriguez was allowed to come back and play. And, Alex Rodriguez was part of a team sport. And thirdly, Alex Rodriguez never stood for anything else other than baseball." "So, I was never allowed to come back to my sport at any level, and most people viewed it as an individual sport. And, I stood for much more than just cycling." (TMZ)

The woman with whom Offset allegedly cheated -- not long before Cardi B gave birth -- says she's remorseful, and tells TMZ ... she never wanted to be a homewrecker. Summer Bunni cried openly while telling us how guilty she feels after word got out her hooking up with Cardi's husband might have been a catalyst in the couple's split. SB is the woman Offset allegedly asked to arrange a threesome that would include rapper Cuban Doll. Summer tells us she hasn't messed with Offset since Cardi had their baby, Kulture, but still feels ashamed for playing any role in breaking up their marriage. She insists she didn't know how serious Offset and Cardi were -- which seems absurd. They were married! Bunni hasn't spoken directly to Cardi, but she tried to deliver an apology through us, and says she hopes the estranged couple will reconcile. As we reported, Cardi says she and her "baby daddy" are still friends, but the love is gone. (TMZ)

The Thousand Oaks bar where 12 people were killed in a shooting rampage nearly a month ago is making a valiant effort to return to normalcy. First order of business -- hosting country night again. The Borderline Bar & Grill's management is bringing back their popular Country Night ... but because they're not yet ready to open doors, the event will be held at The Canyon Club in Agoura Hills. It's just a 9-minute drive away from Borderline. The owners say The Canyon Club "graciously allowed us to set up shop and take over Thursday." The first country night is slated for December 20 with doors opening at 6 PM, dance lessons at 6:30 PM ... then line dancing, drinks and food until closing. As we first reported ... Borderline plans to open again, but the owners don't have a timetable yet. It's been closed since an ex-Marine stormed the bar last month and opened fire on tons of college students attending Country Night. Tamera Mowry's niece and a Ventura County Sheriff's sergeant were among the victims. Responding cops eventually found the gunman dead by apparent suicide. (TMZ)
