IN A room full of Hollywood’s biggest celebrities, it was a couple whose name we’d never heard before who appear to have completely stolen the show.
While Outstanding Lead actor in a Drama Series nominee Sandra Oh — the first Asian woman in history to get a nod in that category — was always going to be one of the brightest stars at this year’s Emmy Awards, it was her proud mum and dad beaming alongside her that really captured the hearts of everyone at home.
Before entering LA’s Microsoft Theater, Mr and Mrs Oh were grabbed for a quick chat on the red carpet, where they gushed about being “so proud” of their famous daughter.
Inside, every time the camera swept past their row, the pair was seen smiling from ear to ear as they basked in the glow of their daughter’s big night — and look, the whole thing was just too pure for words.
Sandra Oh’s parents were the stars of the night and we all know it. #Emmys

This year’s Emmys nomination is the sixth of Oh’s career. She was nominated five times for Outstanding Supporting actor in a Drama for her role as the beloved Christina Yang on Grey’s Anatomy.
