Sandra Oh isn’t just co-hosting the 2019 Golden Globes with Andy Samberg, she’s also a nominee. Though many people are aware of Sandra Oh’s award-winning performance as Dr. Cristina Yang, a role she held from 2005-2017 on the hit series Grey’s Anatomy, it is her newest role as Killing Eve’s Eve Polastri, that has captured praise from fans and media critics.
Tonight, Sandra Oh joins fellow nominees Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaids Tale), Caitriona Balfe (Outlander), Julia Roberts (Homecoming), and Keri Russell (The Americans) in the Golden Globe category Best Performance by an Actress In A Television Series Drama.
