If you haven’t watched “Killing Eve,” now’s the time to start.
The 2018 Emmy nominations were announced Thursday morning and Sandra Oh just made history with her nod for the BBC America drama.
The 46-year-old actress is the first Asian woman to be nominated for lead actress in a drama series in the show’s 70-year history.
Oh plays the titular role of Eve Polastri, an MI5 security officer who is on the trail of a female serial killer.
The actress isn’t a stranger to the Emmys though. She was previously nominated five consecutive years in the supporting actress category for her role as the sharp-witted, tell-it-like-it-is Dr. Cristina Yang.
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.” In 2017, Riz Ahmed became the first man of Asian descent to win lead actor in a limited series for his work on HBO’s “The Night Of.”
Representatives for Oh didn’t immediately respond to INSIDER’s request for comment.
