Sandra Oh has steadily been killing it all award season — from her fashion to her tear-inducing speeches — and she continued her hot streak at the SAG Awards on Sunday night. The Killing Eve star nabbed the actor for outstanding female in a TV series for her portrayal of intelligence agent Eve Polastri, which is her fourth SAG Award win overall. Oh graciously began her speech by celebrating her fellow nominees, before thanking Killing Eve cast members and her mentor, actress Kim Gillingham, saying, "I am not the actor I am, without the work that we share."

Oh went on to thank her fellow actors for their support, notably other actors of colour. "In 1997 [Alfre Woodard] whispered in my ear, 'I'm so proud of you out there. We fight the same fight,'" the actress recalled, visibly getting choked up. "Jamie Foxx, in 2006, pulled me aside and he said, 'Keep going.' And in 2017, Lena Waithe just embraced me and said, 'You already won, it's in the work.' So thank you to my fellow actors." Watch the moving speech ahead!
