Sandra Oh continues to make history.
The star and executive producer of BBC America's acclaimed spy drama, Killing Eve, earned her third straight Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series on Tuesday for her performance as Eve Polastri. Oh continues her hot streak at the Emmys with her latest nomination. (Her co-star Jodie Comer also landed an Emmy nomination, following up last year's win.)
In 2018, Oh became the first woman of Asian descent to be recognized in a lead actress category -- for either comedy or drama -- in the history of the Primetime Emmy Awards. And last year, she became one of a handful of actors who earned multiple nominations, two for Killing Eve (one as a producer), another for guest hosting Saturday Night Live and a fourth for co-hosting the Golden Globes alongside Andy Samberg.
