    Anita Bennet writes, “The 2018 Emmy nominations were announced Thursday morning, and while Netflix garnered more nods than any other outlet with 112, diversity was the big winner among the acting talent.

    Sandra Oh, who plays a spy on the BBC America drama Killing Eve, made history as the first actress of Asian descent to receive a nomination for lead actress in a drama series.

    Oh — who is Korean-Canadian — was previously nominated five times in the supporting actress category for her role on ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy.

    Guy Aoki, founding president of the Media Action Network for Asian Americans applauded Oh’s nomination.”
