i talked to sandra oh about her emmy nomination and only cried A LITTLE BIT OKAY https://t.co/FDaOZ8jxno— E. Alex Jung (@e_alexjung) July 12, 2018
- In case you missed it, today Sandra Oh was the first woman of Asian descent to receive a lead actress in a drama nomination, for her role as Eve Polastri in the BBC show Killing Eve.
- She's been nominated for Emmys several times in the supporting category for her role on Grey's Anatomy.
- Oh was helping a friend prepare for an audition when the nominations were announced. She's currently in London, so she didn't realize she'd been nominated until she looked at her phone.
- Celebrated on her patio in London with a glass of chablis.
- Says some people don't care about awards, and she understands that mentality, but she is not one of those people right now.
- On what her nomination means to other people: "I’ve always felt like it’s not just me. Let me tell you, I’m not thinking of other people when I’m doing my work. But I know that I’m part of my community. I really hold that, maybe not so much as a forefront of what moves me through my work, but I know it. So I am exceptionally honored that I am able to hold this moment, not only for myself, but what it may mean for our community."
- When asked how she will handle her historic nomination: "I’ve got to tell you: joyously. I understand that people are going, Oh my God, it’s 2018 why is taking the world so long? I understand that. But I am not there. I am just like, yay. Let’s be happy that we have this moment. And let us build and have confidence and see ourselves in this moment."
- Feels terror, excitement and hunger about starting work on the next season of Killing Eve.
SANDRA OH MAKING HISTORY FIRST ASIAN AMERICAN WOMAN TO BE NOMINATED FOR AN EMMY 🙏🙏🙏🙏🚨🚨🚨🚨👑👑👑👑❤️❤️❤️❤️🔥🔥🔥🔥— AWKWAFINA (@awkwafina) July 12, 2018
Congrats to @IamSandraOh! She's always been an idol to me. I remember the 1st time I saw her...I was a kid & I watched the movie Guinivere "now that is a real actress w/ chops," I thought. I'd never seen an AsAm Actress own a role like that. She's the real deal <3 #Inspiration— Constance Wu (@ConstanceWu) July 12, 2018
