Sandra Oh is a famous actress in the US and has made history three different times. Oh’s most recent milestone moment was being the first woman of Asian descent to host the Golden Globes.

Oh was born to Korean parents in Ontario, Canada. She can fluently speak four languages including English, French, Korean, and Spanish. Oh’s most popular work is her role in the show “Grey’s Anatomy.” She also acted in more than 30 movies such as “Killing Eve” and “Arli$$.”  

The Asian-Canadian actress made history by being the first woman of Asian descent to win multiple Golden Globes, and the first Asian woman to win a Golden Globe for best actress in a TV drama.

Oh and co-host Andy Samberg opened the Golden Globes by admiring the diversity in the nominated films such as Black Panther, BlaKkKlansman, If Beale Street Could Talk, and Crazy Rich Asians.

“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,” Oh said during her opening speech of the Golden Globes 2019.

Not only is Sandra Oh the first actress of Asian descent to ever host the Golden Globes, but she is also the only asian woman to host any of the major award shows, such as the Oscars, the Emmys, and the Grammys. Because the hosts of these major award shows are not usually a person of color, Oh accomplished a milestone

“Next year could be different and it probably will be,” Oh said, “But right now, this moment is real.”
