Sandra Oh already made Emmy Awards history before stepping a foot onto Monday's golden carpet, but that didn't stop her from bringing her A-game, anyway.

The actress, who is the first-ever woman of Asian descent to land a nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama, walked up to the event joined by her family, who wore shades of pink and red that matched Oh's own dress. How cool are they?

Oh was a vision in a red velvet and beaded gown with a deep V-neck. While on the carpet, E! red carpet host Giuliana Rancic asked her about choosing empowering narratives to portray in her work.

"Honestly it's not necessarily a conscious focus for me," Oh said. "I think that happens to me no matter what because I am a woman and I want to tell my own stories, but it really has to do with finding something that's interesting and truthful and that I resonate with."

If Oh takes home the Emmys trophy for her category tonight, she'll break even more records. The Korean-Canadian actress, who stars in BBC America’s beloved drama Killing Eve, would become only the third actor of Asian descent to ever earn an Emmy for their leading or supporting role.

Keep your fingers crossed for her (not that she needs the luck).
