Sandra Oh was onstage a lot on Sunday. Not only was she one of the hosts, she also won her second Golden Globe — this time for best actress in a television drama as the star of the BBC series, “Killing Eve.”
Her first win was in 2006: best supporting actress for her role as Dr. Yang on the television series “Grey’s Anatomy.” Other stars have won Globes even as they served as host, most recently Amy Poehler for best actress for “Parks and Recreation” in 2014.
On Sunday Oh’s acceptance speech was one of the most spirited of the night, in keeping with her approach to her hosting duties: an endearing combination of earnestness and jubilation.
When she took the stage, the camera cut to the audience, where her father was giving her a standing ovation, to which Oh yelled, “Oh, Daddy!”
She also thanked “Killing Eve’s” creator, Phoebe Waller-Bridge; Luke Jennings, author of the “Villanelle” novels on which the show is based; and the cast. “I’m so grateful, I’m so grateful to my family,” she said, and concluded later, “But 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 and my father. Thank you, everyone.
When she finished her speech, Oh bowed toward her parents.
