Eve is tasked with hunting down an assassin named Villanelle (Jodie Comer), and Villanelle, a psychopathic killer, naturally becomes obsessed with Eve. The show has gained critical acclaim for its stellar writing, acting, and unique approach to the spy genre.

In an industry where rivalry and competition have taken over almost everything, Ellen Pompeo still congratulating Sandra Oh is worth applauding. Their friendship has gone remarkably well despite them not sharing a screen anymore.
Everyone in Hollywood should practice this supporting and encouraging behavior.
The Whole Grey’s Anatomy Crew Is Happy For Sandra Oh
Even when Pompeo and Oh go a long way, other people from Grey’s team are happy at Sandra’s success. Shondaland, the production company behind the TV series, expresses excitement:
Our hearts are bursting with pride and excitement for Sandra Oh, making history as the first woman on Asian descent to be nominated for Lead Actress in a drama series.
For those who don’t know, Grey’s Anatomy is a long-running medical drama television series that premiered on ABC in 2005. The show follows the exciting lives of surgical residents, attending physicians, and their mentors as they move through their medical education while balancing their personal and professional relationships.
The show is named after the original series protagonist, Dr. Meredith Grey, played by Ellen Pompeo. Dr. Grey’s best friend was Dr. Christina Yang, played by Sandra Oh. In the show, these two characters become close friends who would do everything for one another. Unfortunately, Oh left Grey’s Anatomy in season 10 to pursue other projects. Fans were sad to see Dr. Christina Yang go, but the show still found a way to keep its audience hooked.
Grey’s Anatomy is known for its diverse cast and depiction of complex medical cases and personal relationships. So, of course, they were happy to hear the news of Sandra Oh’s Emmy nomination.
Let’s see and hope that Sandra Oh can win the Emmy award because she did a remarkable job in ‘Killing Eve.’ Fans all over the world were in awe of her performance. The Emmy award show will take place in June and May of 2018. Oh is competing against Claire Foy for ‘The Crown,’ Evan Rachel Wood for ‘Westworld,’ Tatiana Masley for ‘Orphan Black,’ Keri Russell for ‘The Americans,’ and Elisabeth Moss for ‘The Handmaid’s Tale.’
Who do you think will win the award?
