Tatiana Maslany finally won an Emmy for Orphan Black!

The Primetime Emmys were on last night in the states, with a batch of winners dominated by the behemoth which is Game of Thrones.

That's hardly a surprise given the the quality of the show, and the sheer amount of cash HBO throws at it each year, but there were some pleasant surprises on the night like Rami Malek picking up a gong for Mr Robot and seeming like he had no clue what was going on.

But our favourite win of the night had to be for the wonderful Tatiana Maslany. She picked up an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her role in Orphan Black. The show has been running since 2013 and has always been a bit of an underdog but if you've managed to catch any of it you'll know why she deserved the award.

Basically Maslandy plays most of the cast, with this Emmy coming for her part as no less than six characters. Each feels like a different person which is down to a unique look but also incredibly disparate mannerisms, accents and personalities. It's an incredible feat and the only surprise is that it took the Emmy folks so long to give her the award.

Here's her speech.

Great stuff!

The only bad part about Orphan Black really is that it has kept the 30 year old so busy over the last number of years. Now the fifth season has been confirmed as the last, to air in 2017, so expect to see a lot more of her in the future.
