Michelle Yeoh is carving her name in history for being the first Asian to getting an Academy Award nomination in the Best Actress category. The good news was revealed on Tuesday morning, January 24.

According to Daily Mail, the Last Christmas star said, "It's overwhelming and you are like thank you for seeing us, seeing people that look like me, so it's about time."
