Lee Yoo-mi and Colman Domingo Win Creative Arts Emmys for Guest Acting in a Drama Series

The Korean actress was honoured for her work in Netflix’s ‘Squid Game,’ while Domingo was honoured for his work in HBO’s ‘Euphoria.’

Lee Yoo-mi has won the 2022 Emmy for outstanding guest actress in a drama series for her role in Netflix’s Squid Game, making her the first Korean actress to do so. Colman Domingo won the award for best guest actor in a drama series for his performance in Euphoria. It is both actors’ first Emmy nomination.

“Thank you so much for this tremendous honour,” Lee said through a translator as he accepted the award. “I’d like to express my gratitude to the TV academy, as well as my Netflix team.”

“I’m so happy, thank you!” the actress added in English.

Squid Game made history this year by becoming the first non-English language series to be nominated for best drama series. It was also nominated for best actor (Lee Jung-jae), best supporting actor (Park Hae-soo and Oh Young-soo), and best supporting actress (Park Hae-soo) (Jung Ho-yeon)

“Many people who love me and lift me up have brought me to this point.” “Thank you to those people,” Domingo said in his acceptance speech, referring to Euphoria creator Sam Levinson and his team as “the most creative artists.” “Thank you to my darling Ral, this is for you,” the actor said of his husband, Ral Domingo.

Other nominees in the drama guest actress category include Martha Kelly from Euphoria, Marcia Gay Harden from The Morning Show, and Hope Davis, Sanaa Lathan, and Harriet Walter from Succession (who was also nominated for her guest role in Ted Lasso).

Other nominees in the drama guest actor category include Tom Pelphrey from Ozark and Adrien Brody, James Cromwell, Arian Moayed, and Alexander Skarsgard from Succession.
