She Did It! Sandra Oh Makes History With Her Golden Globe Win For Best Actress in a TV Drama

Sandra Oh's big night at the Golden Globes just got even better! On Sunday, the actress won the coveted award for best actress in a TV drama for her portrayal of intelligence agent Eve Polastri in the show Killing Eve. Oh, who is Korean-Canadian, made history with the win as she became the first Asian to receive multiple Golden Globes. (She first won the gold trophy in 2006 for her performance as Cristina Yang on Grey's Anatomy.)

As soon as she was announced as the winner, Oh walked onto the stage crying. "There are two people here tonight that I'm so grateful that they're here with me," she said, fighting back tears. "I'd like to thank my mother and my father." She then concluded by honoring her parents, Joon-Soo and Young-Nam Oh — and her Korean heritage — in the sweetest way; watch the touching moment in the clip above!
