Sandra Oh Makes History with Emmy Nomination! | 2018 Emmy Awards, Sandra Oh

Sandra Oh's first headlining TV role in BBC America's "Killing Eve" has yielded her first lead actress in a drama Emmy nomination - and a place in history. The other women nominated in her category include Elisabeth Moss for The Handmaid's Tale, Keri Russell for The Americans, Evan Rachel Wood for Westworld, Claire Foy for The Crown, and Tatiana Maslany for Orphan Black.

Oh also addressed her surprise at even being offered a lead role as an Asian actress during our recent TVLine Podcast with her.

If you haven't watched "Killing Eve", now's the time to start.

"Killing Eve" is Oh's big comeback after leaving "Grey's Anatomy" in 2014.

"I'm struggling to find the right words for it", Oh told The Hollywood Reporter after her nomination was announced on Thursday morning. Oh plays Eve Polastri, an MI5 officer who is tailing an assassin played by Jodie Comer. "I am thrilled for Phoebe Waller Bridge's nomination and for the entire cast/crew of 'Killing Eve.' I share this moment with my community. PS".

"P.S. I think my mother at this moment may actually be satisfied", the 46-year-old actress added.

The actress isn't a stranger to the Emmys though.

Oh's nomination spurred fans to celebrate online, 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.

Archie Panjabi became the first woman of Asian descent to win an Emmy in the outstanding supporting actress category in 2010 for her role on CBS' "The Good Wife".

The 70th Emmy Awards, co-hosted by Saturday Night Live's Colin Jost and Michael Che, will air live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Monday, Sept. 17, starting at 5 p.m. PT on NBC.
