Ottawa’s Sandra Oh Is Up For A History Making Emmy Award Tonight

Ottawa-born Sandra Oh will become the first performer of Asian descent to land a lead drama actress Emmy if she wins for her role on the thriller series Killing Eve. In fact, she already made history with the nomination alone. A local Reddit user has suggested “If Sandra Oh wins an Emmy tonight, may I propose that the City of Ottawa change the ‘Avenue O’ in Eastway Gardens to ‘Avenue Oh.'” I second that motion!

Sandra Oh is one of two Canadians in the same category — Regina-born Tatiana Maslany is also in the running for playing multiple roles on the clone series Orphan Black. She won in 2016.

Toronto-born Lorne Michaels, who heads up SNL, will be producing the three-hour awards extravaganza. He might even keep it running on time. The most Emmy-nominated individual of all time is Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels, with a whopping total of 87 nominations. He’ll compete this year for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series for SNL. The 70th annual Emmy Awards will be broadcast live from Los Angeles tonight at 8 p.m. ET.
