Call it Emmy season justice. After being overlooked for two seasons by TV Academy voters, Canadian thesp Tatiana Maslany finally notched an Emmy lead drama actress nomination for her turn as various clones on the dystopian future BBC America show Orphan Black. Prior to today, award pundits as well as TV Academy members continually smacked their foreheads over Maslany being left out of the race.
Maslany faces off this season in the category against Viola Davis (How To Get Away With Murder), Taraji P. Henson (Empire), Claire Danes (Homeland), Robin Wright (House of Cards) and Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men). In the last year, she has logged a TV drama actress nod at both the Golden Globes and SAG. The Critics Choice TV Awards have been ahead of the curve, giving her back-to-back best actress trophies in 2013 and 2014.
