“Killing Eve” Star Jodie Comer Earns Emmy Award For Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series

Jodie Comer scores her first Emmy Award.

Both Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer have received raves for their work on “Killing Eve.” Oh, however, was the betting favorite for the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series Emmy.

The award instead went to Comer.

A clearly surprised and gracious Comer just accepted the award, beating out a myriad of talented actresses. In addition to her co-star, other nominees included Emilia Clarke (Game Of Thrones), Robin Wright (House Of Cards), Laura Linney (Ozark), Viola Davis (How To Get Away With Murder) and Mandy Moore (This Is Us).

“Killing Eve” is also up for Outstanding Drama Series; the winner will be announced shortly.
