Sandra Oh Brings Her Parents to Emmys Red Carpet: 'I'm So Proud of Her'

It’s Oh. Mr. and Mrs. Oh.

A nominee for her performance as MI5 officer Eve Polastri in BBC America hit “Killing Eve,” Sandra Oh hit the red carpet with her parents in tow at the Primetime Emmys on Monday night.

Both clad in red, Sandra Oh’s mother shared how proud she was of her, whose nomination is historic as the first actress of Asian descent to receive an Emmy nomination for lead actress in a drama series.

Mrs. Oh reached over to bestow a hug and a kiss on her daughter. Her face lighting up, Sandra Oh exclaimed: “Oh, my God. That happened on film.”

Sandra Oh was previously nominated five times in the supporting actress category for her role as Cristina Yang on “Grey’s Anatomy.”

Before heading in for the evening, Oh reflected on what “little Sandra” would be thinking right now. “That it happened. It happens. It happens,” she said.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who developed “Killing Eve” from Luke Jennings’ “Codename Villanelle” novel series, also received a nomination for outstanding writing for a drama series.

“Killing Eve” received the go-ahead for a second season before the series premiered. Waller-Bridge will return to produce the series, while Emerald Fennell will take over as lead writer.
