Sandra Oh is ready to make history as the first person of Asian descent to co-host the 2019 Golden Globe Awards.
Speaking with ET Canada’s Carlos Bustamante at the preview day and red carpet rollout for the 2019 Golden Globe Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Thursday, the 47-year-old Canadian actress, who was joined by her co-host, 40-year-old comedian Andy Samberg, shared her excitement.
“I feel good,” Oh told Bustamante about breaking boundaries with the award show. “I have a lot of feelings about how new this is and what this means for me and potentially for other people. And so I’m just really happy to carry it right now.”
As this year’s Golden Globes co-host, Oh, who was born in Nepean, Ont., will also be the first Canadian to ever host the show.
Last year at the 2018 Emmy Awards, the former “Grey’s Anatomy” star also made history as the first woman of Asian descent to be nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her role in the drama series “Killing Eve”. Although she ultimately lost the award to Claire Foy in “The Crown”.
This year, Oh is nominated for Best Performance by an Actress In A Television Series – Drama for “Killing Eve” at the 2019 Golden Globes.
The 2019 Golden Globes will air on Sunday, January 6 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
