'Killing Eve' (2018)
Sandra Oh captivates fans and critics alike with her leading role in the drama series "Killing Eve". Oh, as MI5 officer Eve Polastri, proved she could carry a show to critical acclaim and numerous awards nominations.
'Mediation Park' (2017)
Meditation Park Film Ltd.
Sandra Oh and a talented cast, which includes Don McKeller, depict the important difficulties around immigration and minorities in "Meditation Park".
Dark Sky Films
The actress and "Catfight" co-star Anne Heche tickled funny bones in this 2017 action-comedy with Alicia Silverstone, Titus Burgess, and more.
'American Crime' (2017)
Sandra Oh appeared in season three of "American Crime" as Abby Tanaka. The role further established Oh as a hot commodity that can lend believably and depth to any project.
'Window Horses' (2016)
National Film Board of Canada
Sandra Oh starred in this beautiful animated Canadian movie. The film was built on the foundation of fandom with $80,000 raised in five days through an Indiegogo campaign.
'Sesame Street' (2011)
You know you've hit the big time when Sesame Street comes a-calling. Oh had a fun time in one episode as The Cookie Fairy, who described herself as 'sweet as a cookie and twice as smart'. The Cookie Fairy granted The Cookie Monster the ability to turn everything he touched into a cookie, much to the chagrin of his friends. Soon, everything and everybody has turned cookie. It all ended happily.
'Rabbit Hole' (2010)
The feature got a lot of critical attention, but not a lot of butts in theatre seats. Too bad. It's a sad story of a troubled couple (Nicole Kidman/Aaron Eckhart) dealing with the death of their young son. Oh played Gabby, a member of a self-help group who tempted Eckhart's character into a near-affair. Check it out if you get a chance, but be prepared. It can be depressing stuff.
An overlooked Canadian comedy/drama gem. Oh had a small part as a psychiatrist dealing with the delusions of the imprisoned, mentally-challenged Arthur (Woody Harrelson). Arthur thought himself a superhero, and had taken to acting out that belief with increasing violence. Shot in Toronto and Hamilton, the film also starred Kat Dennings (Two Broke Girls).
'3 Needles' (2005)
Thom Fitzgerald's anthology meditation on the AIDS epidemic featured Oh as a nun in Africa (along with Olympia Dukakis and Chloe Sevigny). They must make dramatic and desperate compromises in dealing with the spread of the deadly disease.

As the friendly wine server Stephanie, Oh's character hooked up with groom-to-be Thomas Haden Church in this acclaimed comedy. Written and directed by Alexander Payne -- who was married to Oh at the time -- the film received five Oscar nominations (winning one) and loads of other awards for its cast. At the very least, the role offered a chance for Oh's character to clobber a lying, cheating dirtbag with a bike helmet.
'Six Feet Under' (2001)
Although she was starring in a TV series at the time (Arli$$), Oh couldn't resist a small part in the critically-acclaimed Six Feet Under. The excellent 2001 episode found Oh looking blonde as a porn star mourner grieving the death of one of her colleagues. A very unique funeral, to say the least.
'Dancing At The Blue Iguana' (2000)
Lions Gate Entertainment
Another showy role for Oh, who played a sad, vulnerable exotic dancer in this hard-hitting, little-seen drama set at a strip club. Though acting opposite Daryl Hannah and Jennifer Tilly, it was Oh who received most of the critical attention.
Oh got to play flamboyant and glamorous in this short-lived WB high school drama. The actress had a recurring part as a smart-dressing humanities teacher who must deal with a bunch of spoiled students. Popular producer Ryan Murphy would go on to create another high school series: Glee. Though there have been repeated calls for Oh to appear on Glee, it hasn't happened yet.
'Last Night' (1998)
Oh won another Best Actress Genie for her role in this excellent apocalyptic ensemble tale. Set in Toronto on the last day on Earth, the film followed Sandra as she attempted to get home as time ran out. She ended up in a last-second suicide pact with a widower (McKellar). The film is often mentioned among the greatest Canadian films ever. It's certainly one of the best films made about Toronto.

Oh made her splash in America with this HBO series. The actress played Rita, personal assistant to a high-maintenance sports agent (Robert Wuhl). The comedy was popular with viewers, but hated by sports commentators and often cited as one of the worst sitcoms on TV. It wasn't that bad, and offered Oh a chance to show off her comedy chops on a weekly basis.
'Double Happiness' (1994)
Fine Line Features
Oh burst onto the Canadian acting scene with two wildly different works: 1993's hard-hitting TV drama The Diary of Evelyn Lau, and the feature comedy/drama Double Happiness. In that 1994 film, Oh played Jade, a Chinese/Canadian actress dealing with the expectations of her traditional parents. The film explored the Chinese/Canadian experience as Jade suffered through a series of 'arranged' dates, and auditions for awful stereotypical roles. Oh - who is actually of Korean lineage - won a Genie for Best Actress for Double Happiness.
