Orphan Black's Tatiana Maslany Reacts to First Emmy Nom!

Orphan Black's Tatiana Maslany Reacts to First Emmy Nom!

Tatiana Maslany was nominated for her first ever Emmy Award on Thursday morning and she is reacting to the honor.

The 29-year-old actress, who was snubbed for the last two years for her critically-acclaimed performance on Orphan Black, finally received a nod in the Lead Actress in a Drama category.

“I didn’t even expect it at all,” Tatiana told Variety. “It’s super nice, and it feels like a nice thing for the show to get that kind of recognition, and for the fans — they’ve been so supportive and protective of us; it feels like a communal thing.”

“It’s crazy,” Tatiana added of the online support. “That’s why I feel it’s not for me this nomination happened; it’s for our fans, because they’re the ones who are fighting for people to watch the show and have championed it in such a huge way. I feel so supported and so loved. It’s totally crazy to me that anyone cares if I get a nomination — it’s pretty wild.”
