Sandra Oh Becomes A Moment Of Change At The Golden Globes
Yang owned Sunday night at the Golden Globes. Oh, I mean Sandra Oh. She is Yang to most, because of her great portrayal of Cristina Yang on Grey’s Anatomy from 2005 to 2014. The same role that helped her gain her first Golden Globe in 2006. On January 6th Oh made history for women of Asian descent in the acting world.
Sandra made her first historical moment co-hosting the Golden Globes with Andy Samberg. In their opening monologue Oh explained,
“If I could take a moment here in all honesty, I said ‘Yes’ to the fear of being on this stage tonight because I wanted to be here to look out into this audience and witness this moment of change.”
The KillingEve star moved on from being the first Asian woman to host to being the first Asian woman to win multiple awards at the Golden Globes. Sandra won the award for Best Leading Actress in a TV Drama. This is the second in Asian history for a woman to win this award; the first was Yoko Shimada for her role in Shogun in 1980. Killing Eve will be back this year for season two April 7th on BBC America.
