​Sandra Oh Wins Best Actress Golden Globe For Killing Eve

Sandra Oh has had quite the night at the 76th Golden Globe Awards - having not only been given the coveted co-hosting slot alongside Andy Samberg, but also winning herself the Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Drama award for her turn as the titular character in BBC drama Killing Eve.

In her acceptance speech, Oh thanked her family - but gave a particularly special shout-out to her mother and father, who were in the audience as she accepted the award.

For those of you who haven't seen the first season yet (get on the case, it's ACE), the show is based on the Codename Villanelle novella series from author Luke Jennings and follows bored MI5 officer, Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh), as she hunts down the elusive assassin.

There's also a second season on the way, which was commissioned before it even hit UK screens thanks to its celebrated success over in America.

At the time, BBC America president Sarah Barnett said: "The early response to Killing Eve has been incredible - for that reason, as well as the fact that we wholeheartedly love this original, funny, thrillingly entertaining series, we are delighted to move ahead with a second season before we even premiere."

Congrats, Sandra! We can't wait to see you and Jodie Comer in action again soon.
