Oh! What a feeling
SANDRA Oh’s (pic) parents were still beaming as the champagne started flowing moments after the Golden Globes host won a trophy of her own for her acclaimed work on Killing Eve.
“We are so pleased,” said Oh’s father, Joon-soo Oh, joining his wife Young-nam Oh in a celebratory toast, seated at a table inside the awards show with the best view in the house of Oh onstage. “We are so proud of her.”
In September, the Ohs attended the Emmys with their daughter, where they walked the carpet singing her praises.
“Finally! Finally she got it,” beamed her father. “She really worked hard, and I’m so happy to see she made it through to this stage.”
Of course, he says, they always knew their daughter deserved the acclaim.
“When she starred in her Grade Five school show, she really surprised everybody as a performer,” he grinned.
Ahead of Jan 6’s show, mum and dad made guest-starring appearances on Sandra Oh’s social media wearing shirts that read, “It’s an honor just to be Asian. – Sandra Oh.”
In addition to winning the Golden Globe for Best Actress In A Drama TV Series, Oh has been onstage all evening trading quips with co-host Andy Samberg at the glitzy awards dinner, which is held at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.
