The Golden Globes kick off the showbusiness awards season on Sunday with Hollywood apparently in the mood for a party, and with plenty to celebrate.
Oh will be the first Asian woman to host the award show and this accomplishment comes just months after she became the first Asian actress nominated for an Emmy as Best Actress in a Drama. Leading the way is the hit movie: 'Crazy Rich Asians.' CGTN's May Lee reports.
"After Trump's election and #MeToo, people felt like they had to speak up", said Tim Gray, awards editor at Hollywood publication Variety.
In 2018, it was impossible to tune into a major award show without hearing some political jabs and comedy from the sitting host of the event. "I don't think it's shallow to have fun and be honestly celebratory", said Oh, who now stars on the television series "Killing Eve".
Last year's Golden Globes were marked by celebrities turning out en masse in black in solidarity with the #MeToo sexual harassment scandal that was roiling Hollywood.
The actress added that she was "not interested in [mentioning President Donald Trump] at all". "Sometimes he goes too far, and some people love it and some people are having a hard time with it", said Gray.
Make sure to tune in for the Golden Globes on Sunday. "That changes things. Just speaking for my own community, people cried a lot in ['Crazy Rich Asians'], and it's not only because it's a great story and a classic romantic comedy - it is because seeing yourself reflected onscreen is really emotional when you don't even know that you're carrying so much grief of never being seen".
