Maslany was also nominated for an Emmy last year but Viola Davis took that one home. Will we see a repeat this year? There’s some tough competition for sure in that category this year but I will never stop touting Maslany’s tremendous talent for playing 11 unique characters on BBC America’s Orphan Black.

  1. Yay for The Americans!
    Tom Cavanagh got snubbed again.

    I know it’s like, uh, my own opinion, man, but I think Maslany is the greatest actor of her generation. The many characters she plays on the show may all look alike, but they come across as completely different people.
