Jodie Comer Was So Sure She Wouldn't Win an Emmy That She Didn't Invite Her Parents

The Killing Eve star was more shocked than anybody that she won Best Actress in a Drama Series

Killing Eve star Jodie Comer pulled off a major upset at the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday when she took home the award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, beating out her own co-star Sandra Oh, as well as Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke, How to Get Away with Murder's Viola Davis, House of Cards's Robin Wright, This Is Us' Mandy Moore, and Ozark's Laura Linney.

"Was not expecting to go up on this stage tonight at all," Comer said before giving a shout-out to Killing Eve executive producer Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who also won big at this year's ceremony. "Oh my god, I cannot believe I'm in a category alongside these women -- one of them is my co-star Sandra Oh ... I feel so lucky to have shared the whole experience with you."

But there were two important people who weren't sharing the experience with Comer: her parents. The actress, a first-time nominee, was so convinced that her co-star, or perhaps Clarke, would win the award that she didn't bother inviting them.

"[Thanks to] my mum and dad, who are in Liverpool, who I didn't invite because I didn't believe this would be my time," she said. "One, I love you. Two, I'm gonna bring it home."

The first two seasons of Killing Eve are currently available to stream on Hulu.
