Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg hosted the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 6, taking the reins following Seth Meyers‘ turn in the spotlight last year. As shown during a brief montage during the ceremony, both Oh and Samberg have had success at previous Globes ceremonies: Oh won a prize in 2006 for her performance as Cristina Yang on Grey’s Anatomy, and Samberg took home a trophy in 2014 for his work in the series Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

And on Sunday night, Oh won a Golden Globe for her role in the critically-acclaimed TV show Killing Eve, in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series: Drama category.

When Oh won, she joined a starry but small lineup of entertainers who have snagged prizes during the same evening that they’re responsible for hosting the event itself. At the Golden Globes, bagging trophies as a host is a very rare occurrence: the Globes only made a practice of having hosts at all in the last decade, and only one of those has managed a same-evening win. It’s similarly unusual for Academy Awards hosts. The Emmys, meanwhile, has a better track record for nominated hosts. From Amy Poehler to Candice Bergen, here are the awards show hosts who won awards during the ceremony they hosted.

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey co-hosted the Golden Globes in 2013, 2014 and 2015. Poehler was nominated in 2012, 2013 and 2014 for her work in the beloved series Parks and Recreation — and finally won in 2014, taking home the trophy for Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Series: Musical or Comedy. (Fey was also nominated for 30 Rock when she was hosting, and although she won three Golden Globes for the show, none of them were awarded during her hosting years.)
