Emmy 2018: Sandra Oh is the first Asian woman nominated for a lead actress award

Sandra Oh got an Emmy nomination for the best actress in a drama series, making her the first Asian woman to ever get a nod in that category. 

The actress received the nomination for her role as an MI6 agent, Eve Polastri, on BBC America’s Killing Eve.

Earlier this year, Oh spoke to TIME about discrimination against Asian actors in Hollywood. She said that Producers often offer her roles as the friend or the sidekick and that there are very few Asian actors with lead roles on television or in a film.

Oh will have a face-off against Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale), Claire Foy (The Crown), Keri Russell (The Americans), Evan Rachel Wood (Westworld) and Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black).
