Sandra Oh brought her parents as her dates to the Emmy Awards tonight, and they couldn't be cuter. The Killing Eve star, who is nominated for lead actress in a drama, proudly introduced her mom and dad as Mrs. and Mr. Oh as they made a cameo in one of her red carpet interviews.

"I'm so proud of her," Mrs. Oh gushed to Variety, before giving her daughter a kiss on the cheek.

Sandra joked, "Oh my God, that happened on film!"

Fans couldn't handle how adorable they were.

Their encounter with This Is Us heartthrob Milo Ventimiglia was especially cute.

While Sandra wore a plunging ruby red dress with jeweled cutouts on the waist and sleeves, her mother opted for a pink and white hanbok, a traditional Korean dress. Oh's fans loved it.

Oh made history as the first Asian woman to receive an Emmy nomination for lead actress in a drama. (She's previously been nominated for supporting actress during her time on Grey's Anatomy.)

The Killing Eve star is up against Claire Foy (The Crown), Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black), Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale), Keri Russell (The Americans), and Evan Rachel Wood (Westworld) for the award tonight.

On the red carpet, Oh explained that Killing Eve's showrunner Phoebe Waller-Bridge was the main reason why she wanted to be a part of the show.

"I think it's the creator of the show, and when I read that script, immediately I felt like I understood her voice and the fact that she's taking the show which really delves into psychology all the way, unabashedly," she told E! News.

"So it makes it so interesting I thought it was something I had never read before, and I knew it was special," she added. "Again, you don't know what's going to happen with it. But I knew I wanted to be a part of it."
