Tatiana Maslany finally won her Emmy for Orphan Black!

I'm honestly so proud of her, so incredibly proud. Not only does she rightfully deserve this award for all the hard work she has put into the show with her performance portraying the variety of the different clones, but Orphan Black as a whole deserves this kind of recognition. Genre television hardly ever gets acknowledged by the Academy and this was just a little Canadian science fiction show that aired on BBC America. While we all wanted and wished ever since the first season that Tatiana deserved all the awards for her impeccable talent and acting skills, just the fact that she was nominated last year was enough. And now she finally won an Emmy! I know that winning awards aren't everything (as evident that there are so many amazing shows out there, past and present, that hardly got any kind of consideration) and that the love and support of the fanbase is rewarding enough, but even so it still feels so good nonetheless. It's been a long time coming, that's for sure.

Orphan Black in general is a wonderful little science fiction show that has brilliant writing, amazing acting (and not just by Tatiana herself) and strong representation of telling women stories, the fact that the show finally got this recognition makes me very happy, indeed.

Other highlights from last night include Rami Malek winning for Mr. Robot, and the Stranger Things children being adorable little cupcakes. ♥ ♥ ♥

Like, I'm always hopeful that she wins but I know with the Emmys it's near impossible that she would win among the rest of the amazing women from other shows she was up against. Just the nomination nod alone is enough sometimes, since not many even get that. So when she actually won this year I was pleasantly surprised! It made me so happy to see her accepting that award and being so adorable. Bless.

Yeah, I suspect most of the journalist/interviewers there didn't know who she was or even seen Orphan Black, which is kind of a bummer and disappointing when you'd think they would at least ask something aside from those three people (since I don't think they know beforehand who the winners are going to be, so they should have done their research for all the shows nominated in preparation just in case). But at least those who did ask her questions gave her something substantial to talk about (so articulate and eloquently in her usual humble manner, too), so there's that.

I was so happy when I saw she won! No one deserved it more than her! I'm so happy for her!

The Kids from stranger things are just too adorable!

And considering the show is ending next year, I think it was appropriate for her to finally get rewarded for her extraordinary talent which goes overlooked so often during these kinds of award shows. ♥

I'm so happy for her too.

I was happy for Rami Malek too. I love how the first thing he said was, "Please, tell me that you're seeing this too?"
Renée: Kaylee. Giddy.rogueslayer452 on September 20th, 2016 03:58 am (UTC)
That was such a wonderful and appropriate opening line to say. I also loved his reaction when his name was announced. He is utterly amazing and I'm so happy for him. :D

I'm so excited that she won! She is an amazing actress. Sometimes I forget that she's one person portraying all of the clones vs. at least two people.
Renée: Orphan Black. Clone Club.rogueslayer452 on September 20th, 2016 03:56 am (UTC)
I'm the same. Every single time I watch Orphan Black I get lost in her performances and always forget that it's one actress playing all these different characters sharing the same scene together. Like. It's mesmerizing. She's such an extraordinary actress and she rightfully deserved this win. :)

I'm really behind on Orphan Black, but omg she absolutely deserves it. Playing all those different characters in the same episode has got to be a lot of work, but she does an amazing job.
Renéerogueslayer452 on September 20th, 2016 08:02 pm (UTC)
For real, though. She has, like, five clones she portrays regularly in almost every episode (Sarah, Alison, Cosima, Helena and Rachel) plus having more being introduced onto the screen almost every season. And every single time you're mesmerized by her acting that you honestly forget that it is one actress playing all these characters.

It's kind of a crime that it took this long for her to be recognized, but at the same time it's fitting since the show is ending next year.

I'm so super happy for her!! :D
Renée: Orphan Black. Clone Club.rogueslayer452 on September 20th, 2016 08:03 pm (UTC)
I'm so happy and proud for her. Even though she's received other awards for the show, the Emmy was such a nice icing on the cake. :)

I was so happy when I heard these news! It's SO deserved :D And I was happy to hear about Rami Malek's win too :)
Renée: Inara Serra. Smile.rogueslayer452 on September 20th, 2016 08:08 pm (UTC)
I honestly wasn't expecting it! Like, I was happy she was nominated again this year but with the lineup she was up against I thought there was no way, Viola would for sure win. But then she finally won! So happy. :)

And it only took four seasons to get to this point!

But seriously, talk about someone who deserved it :D Nominations are nice and all nods, but there's a league of difference between nominations and winning.
Renée: Kaylee. Giddy.rogueslayer452 on September 20th, 2016 08:20 pm (UTC)
I mean she's won other awards for the show prior to this, but there is definitely something about getting an Emmy for a little genre show that literally nobody knew about that is so rewarding and validating. And for someone like Tatiana who puts her heart and soul into her work and remains humble while doing so, she is more than deserving of finally being recognized by the Academy. :)

Tatiana deserved it I mean someone who played 20 characters? She should have won it a long time ago!

The Stranger Things Cast is so Cute! I can't wait to meet Millie Bobbi Brown in October X33.

It amazes me that so many people seem to overlook or dismiss her portraying different characters on the show, or even think she isn't worthy enough to get an award for that alone. Like, Tatiana has managed to make each clone an individual by having different mannerisms, accents, patterns of speech, and just overall physical presence. She even manages to play a character masquerading as another character who is pretending to be another character. I mean, that's on another level, man. That alone is Emmy-worthy.

Either way, I'm glad that she finally got that recognition she rightfully deserves.
Nadine: Orphan Black - Clonesmalicat on September 20th, 2016 03:51 pm (UTC)
I am always rooting for Queen Viola (even tho I don't watch HTGAWM) but Tatiana was long overdue and who knows if she will even be nominated next year so I am very happy about her winning :)

I kind of want to adopt the Stranger Things kids. And I don't even like or want kids lol
Renée: Orphan Black. Sarah Manning.rogueslayer452 on September 21st, 2016 03:58 am (UTC)
I actually speculated that Viola would've gotten it for sure, but I'm happy that Tatiana got the win instead! And I agree, there is no guarantee that she'll be nominated next year especially with the show ending and all. So while this is long overdue I think the timing is most appropriate.

Those kids are so adorable, every time I see them in interviews and such they're always so endearing. ♥

Those are the only wins that mattered that night, I think. ;) And well deserved, all of them.

I'm so happy for Tatiana! ♥ We've been waiting for this Emmy for 4 seasons already :D

I saw so many gifs and pictures of Rami and he was so adorable :)
Renéerogueslayer452 on September 21st, 2016 04:13 am (UTC)
Both she and the show are more than deserving of this award. It's about damn time for that recognition! :D

YASSSSSSSSSSSSSS TATIANA YASSSSS! SO well deserved! She's friggin amazing in the show. I hope this gives her all the exposure to do even more things because she's seriously talented.

Mr. Robot is on my to-watch list but I'm saving it for a rainy day when I know I have time to be totally obsessed with it because I feel like I'm going to REALLY love it.

Yay *throws confetti* Wonderful news all around!
Renée: Sarah Manning. One of a kind.rogueslayer452 on September 21st, 2016 04:40 am (UTC)
It's bittersweet that the show is ending next year, but at the same time it has given her this amount of exposure and I do sincerely hope that she gets amazing projects in the future because of that. She is incredibly talented and deserves to have the same amount of wonderful roles as OB offered to her.

I have yet to see Mr. Robot, myself, but I've heard amazing things about the show.

Well deserved! She amazes me all the time <3
Renéerogueslayer452 on September 21st, 2016 10:47 pm (UTC)
She never ceases to amaze me. While I'm sad that OB is ending next year, I'm excited and hopeful for what the future holds for her with her career. :)
