Sandra Oh Shared A Touching Message To Her Parents In Korean At The Golden Globes

It’s hard to believe that it has been 76 years since the Golden Globes got their start. Each year they seem to look for a new way to keep people interested and coming back for more when the new year arrives. The duties of hosting are always some of the most difficult to fulfill because you want to keep it respectful but you also want to have a little fun.

We’ve seen some rather awkward moments over the years where the crowds cringed, both in the audience and at home. Sometimes it was intentional but this year, it seems as if everything was a true success. Andy Samberg and Sandra oh were on the stage, giving speeches and doing a little bit of roasting for various Hollywood celebrities.

The 2019 Golden Globes were even opened up with a monologue of compliments instead of the critical humor that is typically seen.

People seem to love their wholesome attitude.

They did give some rather hilarious burns as well:

Sandra was there to do more than host. She also received the nomination for Best Actress in a TV Drama for her part in the BBC series, Killing Eve. She was the first woman of Asian descent that would walk away with the award. She began her emotional speech, thanking those who worked on the show and then she singled out her parents in the audience.

“Mostly, there are two people here tonight that I am so grateful that they are here with me. I’d like to thank my mother, my father,” said Oh before adding in Korean: “Mom, Dad, I love you.”

Her father bowed and she did the same and then her parents gave her a standing ovation. It is a moment that had people on Twitter smiling from ear to ear.

This was the second time that she won a Golden Globe. She received the best supporting actress award for Grey’s Anatomy in 2006. When she was younger, she thought that she had too much to live up to and she was the only child in her family without a Masters degree. She had the following to say to Ellen DeGeneres

“It was very, very tough because, like, you know, my parents at that time really looked down on the arts. It was hard. It’s like one step above, you know, prostitution.

“It’s a different thing. They’d go, what is the social purpose of what you’re doing? Because they really instilled in all of us, my sister, my brother, that whatever you have to do has to be good for society. What’s the good of being on camera? What are you helping society with?”

I would have to say that her parents are probably as proud as they could be.
