'Orphan Black's' Tatiana Maslany wins Critics' Choice Award: Is an Emmy coming?

Tuesday, June 11th, 2013 - The Examiner

Throughout "Orphan Black's" first season run, we said that Tatiana Maslany was giving an award-winning performance as each and every clone, and on Monday, June 10, she received some well-deserved recognition for that with a Critics' Choice Award win.

Yes, Maslany won the Critics' Choice Award for Best Actress in a Drama Series for her work on "Orphan Black," on which she plays Sarah, Beth, Katja, Alison, Cosima, Helena, and Rachel (so far), beating out her competition in Claire Danes from Showtime's "Homeland," Vera Farmiga from A&E's "Bates Motel," Julianna Margulies from CBS' "The Good Wife," Elisabeth Moss from AMC's "Mad Men," and Keri Russell from FX's "The Americans."

Maslany and "Orphan Black" were also just nominated for Television Critics Association Awards for Individual Achievement in Drama and New Program, respectively, and we have to admit, it's really good to see the show and its lead actress getting the recognition it deserves. Hopefully this is just the one of many wins for the actress—and the show—leading up to its second season. It's undeniable that she deserves an Emmy for her work as the lead and supporting clones, and we just hope that like she won this Critics' Choice Award, she comes out on top yet again. "Orphan Black" also deserves the recognition. It's rare to find a show that, from the first to the last episode of the season, was so consistently good and engaging, and with the first season's 10 episodes, it drew viewers in and didn't let them go. It's going to be a long wait until Spring 2014 for season 2.
