Add one more honor to Sandra Oh’s list. The “Killing Eve” actress, who was recently named to the Time 100, has landed on another list of 100 esteemed people: Gold House’s A100.
On Wednesday, Gold House – a collective of pioneering Asian founders, creative voices, and leaders – released its second annual A100 List celebrating Asians and Asian American & Pacific Islanders (AAPI) who’ve made transformative contributions to society. The list honors impactful Asians in a number of fields ranging from media and entertainment to social activism and politics.
Oh has become the face of much of the increased representation for Asian Americans (the Korean Canadian actress acquired U.S. citizenship last year.) Not only is she one of the handful of Asian lead actors in a TV series, but she’s also the first actress of Asian descent to be nominated for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series and the first Asian woman to win two Golden Globes. She also became the first Asian woman to host the Golden Globe Awards this year.
Oh is in good company. Among the most familiar names on the list fall into the Creative Voices and Athletes category; besides Oh, the list includes:
The full list can be found at the Gold House site.
This year also marks the first time that Gold House will launch the A1, a vote among the A100 for the single most impactful Asian in culture from the last year. Votes may be submitted at goldhouse.org/a1 until May 15.
