Oh went on to say that her focus will be "pointing to actual real change", in Hollywood, citing Black Panther and Crazy Rich Asians as examples of culturally-significant movies that helped shift perceptions of the portrayal of minorities onscreen.
One thing fans shouldn't expect when tuning in on Sunday is a politically-fueled show, with host Sandra Oh revealing she isn't interested in talking about President Trump.
Last year's awards shows - which championed smaller films such as The Shape of Water, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and Lady Bird (total gross: about $167 million) - all suffered from low ratings: the Golden Globes, for instance, drew 19 million viewers, a 5 percent drop from the previous year, and the Oscars telecast faced its lowest ratings ever in 2018 with 26.5 million viewers.
Oh echoed these sentiments saying that she feels her job as host is to give the winners the platform to say what they want, even if that's political.
'I don't think I could do that, ' Oh told her co-host when he brought up going down the political road as hosts. "You make it an open and safe place for whoever wants to use that platform to speak".
Chastain is a five-time Globes nominee who won for 2013 Zero Dark Thirty while Rockwell took home a prize a year ago for his supporting role in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

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 don't think it's shallow to have fun and be honestly celebratory", said Oh, who now stars on the television series "Killing Eve".
