Sandra Oh's adorable family return to support her ahead of her Golden Globes gig

So much love!

She may be the star of Killing Eve, but Sandra Oh is well and truly killing this year's Golden Globes.
Not only is she hosting the Golden Globes with Andy Samberg, but the 47 year-old actress also won the coveted statue for Best Actress and no one could be more proud of her than her parents.
The former Grey's Anatomy star tweeted a snap of her adoring family wearing black T-shirts with the phrase, "It's an honour to be Asian," which Sandra said at the 2018 Emmy Awards when she was the first actor of Asian descent to be nominated for best actress.
"Thank you beloved family (ps—why are mom and dad not looking at camera?)" she captioned the snap.
Sandra's parents Junsu and Young-Namalso, who left their native country after the Korean War and raised their family in Canada, also accompanied her on the red carpet.
This isn't the first time, of course, that they've rubbed shoulders with Hollywood royalty. Sandra invited her parents to the 2018 Emmy Awards when she was nominated for her role as Eve Polastri in Killing Eve.
And though she lost out to Claire Foy, her mum was as proud as punch as she kissed her daughter on the red carpet.

But it was Sandra Oh's closing remarks during the opening monologue that had people really tearing up.
After congratulating the cast and crew of Crazy Rich Asians, the actress discussed the importance of Asian American representation in Hollywood.
"I said yes to the fear of being on this stage tonight, because I wanted to be here to look out onto this audience and witness this moment of change," Sandra told the audience.
"And I'm not fooling myself: next year could be different. It probably will be. But right now, this moment is real. Trust me, it is real. Because I see you. And I see you. All these faces of change. And now so will everyone else."
