Sandra Oh Is the First Asian Actress Nominated for Lead in a Drama Series

History was made with the 2018 Emmy Awards nominations, which included recognition for Sandra Oh. Oh, who had been nomimated five times before in the supporting category for her work on “Grey’s Anatomy,” is now the first actress of Asian decent to be nominated for an Emmy for lead actress in a drama series for the critically acclaimed BBC America thriller “Killing Eve.”

Oh was born in Canada to Korean immigrant parents and has appeared in movies including “The Princess Diaries,” “Under the Tuscan Sun,” “Big Fat Liar” and her feature debut, “Double Happiness.” In addition to her extensive voice work for animation, she starred on the series “Arliss” in the late 1990s.

Oh’s nomination drove fans crazy with several hoping that this nomination might lead to a win she “deserved” for “Grey’s Anatomy,” after her decade-long run as Dr. Cristina Yang on the ABC drama.
