Sandra Oh Makes Emmy Awards History

Sandra Oh

Killing Eve star Sandra Oh has made history as the first woman of Asian descent nominated for an Emmy as lead actress in a drama series. As the actress has been nominated for 5 supporting actress Emmy’s for Grey’s Anatomy in the past, this is her first as a lead.

Sandra told The Hollywood Reporter, “I’m absolutely thrilled. I feel my community at all times; I am my community at all times. I have joy not only for the show and myself and family, but also for my community. Hopefully my community can feel like they have representation as well.”

This nomination is a big step for women and all minorities in Hollywood as the fight for inclusion continues. You can catch Sandra in Killing Eve every Sunday on BBC America.
