‘Killing Eve’ just ended a 17-year dry spell in drama actress with Emmy bids for Both Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer
Killing Eve” made a killing with Tuesday’s Primetime Emmy Awards nominations with nine total. Two of those are for Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer in Best Drama Actress, marking the first time since 2002 that a show produced double nominations in the category.

Oh, who last year became the first nominee of Asian descent in the category, and Comer are up against Emilia Clarke (“Game of Thrones”), Viola Davis (“How to Get Away with Murder”), Laura Linney (“Ozark”) and Mandy Moore (“This Is Us”).

The last duo to make the cut were Frances Conroy and Rachel Griffiths from “Six Feet Under.” They lost to Allison Janney, who upgraded to lead that year after back-to-back wins in supporting for “The West Wing.” For the three years before that, “The Sopranos” co-stars Edie Falco and Lorraine Bracco competed against each other in lead, with the former winning twice in 1999 and 2001.
