Orphan Black‘s Tatiana Maslany is officially nominated for outstanding lead actress in a drama series again this year — and this time, we want to see her win it!
Playing multiple clones on the Canadian sci-fi series, Maslany’s brilliant nuanced performance on Orphan Black redefines outstanding. While folks missing out on the show may be unfamiliar with her multi-character work on the BBC show, television viewers may know her from her roles on Being Erica, Heartland and The Nativity.
After the full Emmy nominations list was announced on July 14, the only thing we knew for sure was that the actress behind memorable and inspiring characters Sarah Manning (Maslany), Helena (Maslany), Cosima Niehaus (Maslany), Alison Hendrix (Maslany), Krystal Goderich (Maslany), MK (Maslany) and more — deserves acknowledgement and the big win.
Since Orphan Black‘s debut back in 2013, Maslany has been receiving more attention and widespread critical acclaim. Anyone who has watched even five minutes of the show would get why the actress has earned three Canadian Screen Awards as well as Golden Globe, Sag and multiple Emmy nominations.
But let’s get real, Tatiana is a queen on the screen and her talent seems endless. Let’s skip all the media talk and get right down to why Maslany deserves to take home the prize in 10 Reasons Tatiana Maslany should take home that Emmy win!
