'I am thrilled for Phoebe Waller Bridge's nomination and for the entire cast/crew of Killing Eve, ' she said in a statement. "Oh f**k yes", she wrote to Oh. The star of breakout hit "Killing Eve" became the first Asian actress to be nominated for a leading role Emmy in either comedy or drama.

She was previously nominated five consecutive years in the supporting actress category for her role as the sharp-witted, tell-it-like-it-is Dr. Cristina Yang. She has never won. Oh also addressed her surprise at even being offered a lead role as an Asian actress during our recent TVLine Podcast with her.

Oh is also the only woman of color nominated in the category this year.

Adding, "And I don't care to work with the people who don't get me". I want the movement to keep on going. "The lead characters are women", she continued. There is still a lot more work to do in diversity in front and behind the camera, but to be actively involved in creating something.

Isaiah Thomas agrees to veteran’s minimum deal with Nuggets
Entering his eighth National Basketball Association season, Isaiah Thomas apparently will be joining a sixth team. In two-and-a-half seasons with Boston, the 5-foot-9 guard averaged 24.7 points and 6.0 assists per game.

Oh said she hopes the Asian community continues to be proactive about getting their voices and stories out into the world (a la the upcoming big-screen Crazy Rich Asians adaptation and TV's Fresh Off the Boat).

Oh plays the titular role of Eve Polastri, an MI5 security officer who is on the trail of a female serial killer. "Hopefully, my community can feel like they have representation as well". "I feel quite serious about it. Any other way just isn't right for me".

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.
