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

[narrating] "At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, it's usually a load of bull. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we've chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them. The people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need."

MEREDITH

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."
