Sandra Oh's latest Emmy nomination is a historic one: Her nod for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for Killing Eve makes her the first actress of Asian descent to ever be nominated in that category in the Emmys' 70-year history. In the past, she has been recognized for her supporting role on "Grey's Anatomy".

It's not often that an Asian woman has the leading role in a TV show in the USA, and it's even more rare for one to snag an Emmy nomination, but Sandra Oh has done just that. Oh plays Eve Polastri, a MI5 officer who is tailing an assassin played by Jodie Comer.

"I feel tremendous gratitude and joy with this nomination", Oh told press in a statement Thursday.

The actress received the nomination for the critically acclaimed BBC America thriller "Killing Eve". "I think my mother at this moment may actually be satisfied".

The Korean-Canadian star has been in the spotlight since her role as Dr. Cristina Yang in "Grey's Anatomy, and was nominated for an Emmy for best supporting actress in that role five times".

In the earlier interview, Oh also said that she hopes her role on "Killing Eve" opens doors for other Asian artists, especially storytellers and people behind the scenes.

We'll learn if she wins when the 70th annual Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by "SNL's" Colin Jost and Michael Che, air live September 17 on NBC at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT) from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
