Sandra Oh has landed her third straight Emmy Awards nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.
The Killing Eve star made history in 2018 when she became the first woman of Asian descent to be recognised in a lead actress category at the annual awards ceremony, and after bagging a second nomination in 2019, she is now continuing her historic run with a third consecutive nomination this year.
From 2005 to 2009, Sandra received five consecutive Supporting Actress in a Drama Series nominations for her role as Cristina Yang on Grey's Anatomy. Last year, she was nominated for guest hosting Saturday Night Live and co-hosting the Golden Globes alongside Andy Samberg.
Sandra's latest nomination for her work as Eve Polastri in the BBC drama — announced during a livestream show on Tuesday (July 28) — makes her the most nominated Asian performer in the Emmy's 70-year history.
The 49-year-old actress will battle it out against her co-star Jodie Comer, as well as Zendaya (Euphoria'), Olivia Colman (The Crown), Jennifer Aniston (The Morning Show), and Laura Linney (Ozark).
Elsewhere, Killing Eve also landed a nomination for Drama Series alongside shows including Disney+'s The Mandalorian, cult hit Stranger Things, and Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul.
Lead Actor in a Drama Series nominees include Billy Porter for Pose, Steve Carell for The Morning Show, and Sterling K. Brown for This Is Us.
Killing Eve also earned a nomination for Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, where Fiona Shaw will face the likes of Laura Dern and Meryl Streep (Big Little Lies), Thandie Newton (Westworld), and Helena Bonham Carter (The Crown).
The 2020 Emmy Awards are set to take place on Sept 20 (Singapore time Sept 21, 8am) at Los Angeles' Microsoft Theatre and is pressing ahead despite concerns amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Jimmy Kimmel will be returning to emcee the ceremony for the third time.
