Constance Wu First Asian Woman Nominated for Best Actress Comedy or Musical Golden Globe


Prior to Wu, Yvonne Elliman was just the third Asian woman to score a nod in the category for her work in Jesus Christ Superstar in 1974. Miyoshi Umeki came before her, getting a nomination in the category for her role in Flower Drum Song at the 1962 ceremony. The 1956 awards show marked the first nomination for an Asian woman in the category, when Machiko Kyo was recognized for starring in The Teahouse of the August Moon.If Wu winds up with the Globe this year — she's facing off against Emily Blunt, Charlize Theron, Elsie Fisher and Olivia Colman — she'll be the first Asian woman to win the category.
