In most cases when a ceremony has two hosts, they are longtime friends or an onscreen duo - or both - like Fey and Poehler at the Globes, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin at the Oscars and Colin Jost and Michael Che at the Primetime Emmys.

Surprise: John C. Reilly for Stan & Ollie! On the TV front, This Is Us was completely ignored. Certainly not over The Sisters Brothers. But the film and Hawke were left out completely. If she takes home the trophy, she'll be the first singer to win Best Actress in a Drama, which is quite a feat.
