CNN: "Sandra Oh's Emmy nomination represents a new wave in Hollywood" — "It's 2018, and Sandra Oh has just become the very first woman of Asian descent in the 69-year-history of the awards to be nominated for a lead-actress Emmy Award. Oh deserves every laudatory word being thrown her way; her performance in "Killing Eve" is smart, luminous, nuanced and bold, displaying both her deft comic timing and her ability to bring complicated characters to vivid life."
