Sandra Oh Becomes First Asian Woman to Earn Best Actress Emmy Nomination

Sandra Oh has broken a new record.

Today, the Grey’s Anatomoy actress has become the first actress of Asian descent to receive an Emmy nomination for Best Actress in a Drama Series on Thursday for her role as MI5 security officer Eve Polastri in the BBC America thriller Killing Eve.

The actress now competes with The Crown‘s Claire Foy, The Handmaid’s Tale‘s Elisabeth Moss, The Americans’ Keri Russell, Westworld‘s Evan Rachel Wood and Orphan Black‘s Tatiana Maslany for the award.

Oh, who was born in Canada to Korean parents, has now been nominated for the Emmys six times, although those were for other categories, like when she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her role as Cristina Yang in Grey’s Anatomy.

We can’t wait to see her win!
