Killing Eve wins big at The Emmys with a win by Jodie Comer!
In one of the toughest categories of the night, Jodie Comer took home the Emmy Award for Best Actress in a Drama Series. The actress had a lot of competition, including her Killing Eve co-star, Sandra Oh.
Comer plays the character of Villanelle on BBC America’s hit series, Killing Eve. She quickly became a fan favorite despite being a serial killer and an antagonist of sorts. In season one, it was often brought up how tough it could be to root for her to go to jail because of how likable Comer had made the character despite the fact that she had murdered plenty of people.
In the category, Comer went up against Oh, Emilia Clarke (Game of Throne), Laura Linney (Ozarks), Robin Wright (House of Cards), Mandy Moore (This is Us), and Viola Davis (How to Get Away With Murder).
During her speech, she was sure to thank Sandra Oh for her own spectacular performance. The two actresses are what makes Killing Eve so fantastic and it’s nice to see the camaraderie offscreen. Funnily enough, Comer also revealed she hadn’t brought her parents on the assumption she wouldn’t win but apparently, she was wrong.
Killing Eve revolves around the cat-and-mouse chase between Villanelle and Oh’s Eve. The series has already been renewed for a third season with Suzanne Heathcote taking over as showrunner.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge created the series and serves as an executive producer now. She won big at the Emmys for her show, Fleabag.
