Sunday's Golden Globe Awards ceremony is a big night for actress Sandra Oh, and her family is cheering her on in the cheekiest way possible. Ahead of Oh making history as the first Asian person to host any of the major U.S. acting award shows, she shared a photo of her family wearing shirts that read "it's an honor just to be Asian," a reference to Oh's joke during the Emmy Awards' opening number last September:
But Oh has admitted that her family hasn't always been on board with her acting career. Her parents, Korean immigrants to Canada, were deeply religious and at the time she was launching her career, they "looked down on the arts," Oh told Ellen DeGeneres in 2007. "It's like one step above, you know, prostitution."
More than three decades into a career that has involved roles in The Princess Diaries, Sideways, Grey's Anatomy, and most recently Killing Eve, they've come around. Oh brought her parents as guests to the Emmy Awards, where they adorably gushed on the red carpet about how proud they are of their daughter.
In addition to making history as the Golden Globes co-host alongside Andy Samberg, Oh could become the first Asian woman to win multiple Golden Globes on Sunday if she wins Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series for her role in Killing Eve. Oh previously won in 2006 for portraying Dr. Christina Yang on Grey's Anatomy. Jeva Lange
