Sandra Oh was an unexpected pick to co-host the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards alongside comedian Andy Samberg but the Killing Eve star and nominee explained why she chose to emcee the ceremony with an emotional speech at the end of their monologue.

"I said yes to the fear of being on this stage tonight because I wanted to be here to look out into this audience and witness this moment of change," Oh said. "I'm not fooling myself; next year could be different. It probably will be. But right now, this moment is real. Trust me; it is real. Because I see you. And I see you. All of these faces of change. And now, so will everyone else."

This year's roster of Golden Globes nominees is a diverse group, with movies such as Black Panther and Crazy Rich Asians and actors including Oh, Constance Wu, John David Washington, Rami Malek, Stephan James and Billy Porter up for major awards.

Later in the broadcast, Oh won best actress in a television drama for Killing Eve, becoming the first Asian performer to win more than one Golden Globe award in the history of the ceremony — and the first Asian actress to take home an award in that category in 40 years. (In 2006, Oh won a supporting actress Golden Globe for Grey's Anatomy.)
