Sandra Oh has been taking the 2019 awards season by storm, sending social media into a tizzy with her most recent antics at the 24th annual Critics’ Choice Awards.
On Sunday, the “Killing Eve” actress took home the award for Best Actress in a Drama Series with an impassioned speech singling out co-star Jodie Comer, calling her “my obsession, my other half.”
But perhaps the most tweetable moment of the night happened when she ran over to the cast of “Crazy Rich Asians” and a love-fest ensued:
The moment has gone viral several times over, with many people remarking how lovely a moment it was for the Asian community ― including actress Ming Na Wen, aka the voice of Fa Mulan in Disney’s “Mulan.”
another day, another win for QUEEN SANDRA OH for lead actress at the critics choice awards, where the crazy rich asians cast also won.
SANDRA OH stays a legend and stays breaking barriers for poc.

Oh previously hit the awards show circuit alongside “SNL”alum Andy Samberg as a co-host of the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards. Oh and Samberg delivered a cutesy opening monologue where they intentionally failed at roasting audience members like Spike Lee, Jeff Bridges, Amy Adams and Michael B. Jordan.
That same night, Oh took home the award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series — Drama.
“There are two people here tonight that I’m so grateful that they’re here with me. I’d like to thank my mother and my father,” she said during her acceptance speech before addressing her parents in Korean.
Oh has long been an advocate for better representation in Hollywood and earlier in the night talked about what hosting meant for her as an Asian woman.
“I wanted to be here and look out onto this audience and witness this moment of change,” said the actress. “It may change next year … but right now, this moment is real. Trust me, it is real, because I see you, all these faces of change.”
