Sandra Oh Makes History At The 2019 Golden Globes, And She Thanks Her Parents In Korean

  • Published on Jan 7, 2019
  • At the 2019 Golden Globe Awards, Sandra Oh became the first actress of Asian descent to win multiple Golden Globes, the first person of Asian descent to host the ceremony, and the first woman of Asian descent in 39 years to win the Globe for best actress in a television drama. During her acceptance speech, we witnessed one of the most heartwarming moments of the night when the Killing Eve actress told her parents she loves them in Korean.

    These people are super wealthy liars- the widely replicated, scientific
    data proves it. What they say are widely held, 'diverse' opinions are
    actually morally puritan, socially un-diverse beliefs held by a single
    digit percentage of people- just check/google The Hidden Tribes Report

    Beautiful, so beautiful, she is so gorgeous and she deserve this win, she a talented actress and I'm so happy that she won with so much grace and acceptance, she didn't forget her heritage, she honor them by telling her parents how much she love them in their own language, that is beautiful. I'm so happy for her, she deserve this win and I wish her the best, can't wait to see more of her acting and talents on screen. Thank you so much Sandra Oh for inspiring all of us to believe that one day we will be able to stand on that stage where you are as a proud Asian with so much of our heritage to share and equality for all, thank you and congratulation, much love.

    As a women of color I am just sitting her so proud and happy!!! Sandra Oh is a Boss! When I took a job promotion and I needed to up grade my laptop that was going to be glued to me. I named her Lady Yang after Sandra Oh's Character on Grey's anatomy 😍. I kicked butt at that job. I was the only black person and black women on that management team. I still have Lady Yang with me today. And I smile when I think about that character because Christina didn't let anything get in her way. Seeing Sandra Oh doing these amazing things in real life brings so much joy! Thank you so much

    Why do we care so much about a person's race, skin color at the end aren't we all humans? If a person is good at something, that's all that matters.
    "First person of Asian descent"😕
    They make it look like if you're not European/American, have white skin you're inferior.
    Humans though😔

    So she made history in the entertainment industry? Yawn....strange when people here say they are proud to be Asian because of this and that is sad but yeah Killing Eve is a great show and Sandra Oh has been slaying it in the industry for a long long time.

      The ethnicity or gender of awards host never had any meaningful impact to me nor does the ethnicity of the winner of awards but if this means that much to you then good, I won't be mean about it.

    • Candy Too
      Candy Too 11 days ago +1

      This is a special moment for us though. Yes, she has been in the industry for a long time, but this time, it's different because they finally had an Asian to host the show and she won a huge award. So yes, she made history. One of the only Asians to win a Golden Globes and to host one too.

      It's not just an 'American show' it was adapted from a book written by a British author, screenplay by a British writer, with a British supporting lead in Jodie Comer, for a BBC (also, British) export in BBC America. So as arrogant as American's seem to be, Sandra's success wasn't solely due to America or the opportunities Hollywood has to offer. Without that list of international influence, the show wouldn't exist or be as good. I think we can agree that a whole host of incredible content, talent and success has been experienced due to America embracing outside influences. In a nutshell, it's not all about America, the industry is international regardless of the award ceremony location.

    I respect the fact that she's not ashamed of being Asian and embraces her Korean heritage as well. I've seen too many westernized Asians who pretend like they can't speak even the basics of their own native language despite having traditional Asian parents who immigrated from Asia and can't speak much English. Which obviously means that they speak in their native language at home majority of the time.
