Sandra Oh to Host Canada's Genie Awards

at . Comments

The amazing Grey's Anatomy star Sandra Oh, who we see far too little of on our homepage, will be hosting the biggest night in Canadian film.

The Canadian actress of Korean descent will grace the stage at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre Monday, March 3, to host the 28th annual Genie Awards.

No stranger to the Genies, Sandra Oh has previously won two awards for her roles in "Double Happiness" and "Last Night."

The talented Oh, who we know as Dr. Cristina Yang, has also won a Golden Globe, a Screen Actors Guild award, and a Cannes FIPA d'Or.

In her native Canada, Grey's Anatomy airs on CTV.

"It is an absolute honour to have Sandra Oh as the host for the Genie Awards," said Sara Morton, CEO for the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television.

The press release continued: "Her award-winning accomplishments as an actor in film, TV and theatre, both at home and abroad, are a testament to the kind of talent that Canada has become famous for around the world."

Oh and the rest of the Grey's Anatomy cast will soon be back in production with the writers strike over. New episodes will air in April.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
