Sandra Oh Makes History At Golden Globes With ‘Killing Eve’ Win And Co-Hosting Gig

Sandra Oh is killing it at the 2019 Golden Globes.

Sunday’s co-host, 47, just made history at the awards show following her big win for her work on her TV series “Killing Eve”.

The Canadian-born actress has clearly made waves with her role as an MI5 officer on the hunt for a female assassin on “Killing Eve”.

Back in 2006, Oh won her first Globe for Best Supporting Actress for “Grey’s Anatomy”, but with her second win she is now the first performer of Asian heritage to win more than one Golden Globe trophy.

“Oh my god! Phoebe Waller-Bridge, thank you so much!” she said about the showrunner during her acceptance speech. “I’m so grateful to my family… oh my god!”

“Mostly, I’d like to thank my mother and father,” she said to her parents, who were watching her co-host in the live audience at the Beverly Hilton. Her dad gave her a standing ovation after she won, with Oh adding off camera, “Mom, Dad, I love you.”

Oh is the second woman of Asian background to win in the Best Actress in a TV drama series category – in 1981, Yoko Shimada won for her role in “Shogun”.

She is also only the second person in history to win a Golden Globe while hosting the show. Amy Poehler won Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Comedy Series for “Parks and Recreation” in 2014.

And with her co-hosting gig, next to Andy Samberg, Oh is also the first-ever person of Asian descent – and first Canadian – to host the event for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Just before accepting her award, Oh made a quick outfit change backstage, switching from a stunning red, v-neck gown to a winter white frock with sequin silver sleeves.

“Grey’s Anatomy” creator Shonda Rhimes congratulated Oh on her win, along with several of her former “Grey’s” co-stars.

The rest of Twitter also went wild for her win:
