Crowen fans should brace for immediate emotional impact, because after she co-hosted the 76th Golden Globe Awards, Sandra Oh — who played surgeon Cristina Yang on Grey's Anatomy from 2005 to 2014 — managed to sneak in some quality time with Kevin McKidd, who played her (ex)husband Owen Hunt, and it was exactly as gushy and great as you'd hope for from these Grey's all-timers.
He was, of course, one of the Grey's stars who took time to cheer Oh on as she made history at the Globes by becoming first woman of Asian descent to win for Best Actress in the TV Drama for her leading role in Killing Eve and the first actor of Asian descent to have multiple Globes.
Sandra!!!!! @IamSandraOh !!! I'm so proud today! Xxx— Kevin McKidd (@TheRealKMcKidd) January 7, 2019
But it was when the two got back together at her Globe after-party that the happy feels really started setting in, as the two celebrated her triumphs and their continued connection with an extended embrace. (Why weren't the cameras there for that?!)
McKidd told TVLine, "She invited me to her after-party. It was pretty amazing to see her get such props and be honored in that way. I was a bit tearful. She saw me across the room and she ran over and we hugged for a long, long time."
While Owen Hunt and Cristina Yang might've developed some deep divides over the course of their messy marriage, McKidd says his behind-the-scenes relationship with Oh was always solid.
"We really trust each other and know each other," he told TVLine. " he says. "During all of those hours working together [on Grey's] we watched each others' lives unfold... When she was going through a hard time, or I was, [we] leaned on each other."
Gulp, excuse us while we go dance it out, Yang and Grey style, over the fact that these two will probably never ever get back together on our TV screens.
