Sandra Oh just made history as the first Asian woman to be nominated for an Emmy for lead actor in a drama series. She didn't win the award, but she absolutely won the night with a little help from some adorably proud parents and Twitter.
The fun-fest got started on the red carpet, where Sandra was stopped and interviewed by Variety. They asked her about her "dates" for the historic night and Sandra proudly introduced her parents, "Mr. and Mrs. Oh." Sandra's mom wore a beautifully crafted traditional hanbok, her dad looked handsome in a classic tux, and she was gorgeous in red.
Sandra making history was already amazing enough but then her mom did something many Korean parents normally don't: She planted a loving smooch on Sandra's cheek. Apparently it startled Sandra, who said, "Oh my God, that happened on film!"
The cute was kind of overwhelming.
