Tatiana Maslany Wins Lead Actress 2016 Emmy For Orphan Black

2016 Emmy Win Orphan Black Tatiana Maslany

The winners of the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards have been announced. Owing to the fact that I watch a lot of the nominated content I found myself being quite happy with the 2016 Emmy results.

The first 2016 Emmy award win I want to talk about is Tatiana Maslany. She won an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. She took home the trophy for portraying Sarah Manning, Alison Hendrix, Cosima Niehaus, Beth Childs, Rachel Duncan, and MK on Orphan Black. I don’t know what took the Emmy’s so long to recognize her acting abilities. She should’ve won the award back during the first season. Regardless of you liking Orphan Black or not you can’t deny Tatiana’s talent.

Tatiana won against Claire Danes (Homeland), Viola Davis (How to Get Away With Murder), Taraji P. Henson (Empire), Keri Russell (The Americans), and Robin Wright (House of Cards). While I’m a fan of Viola and Taraji’s respective roles, Tatiana deserved the award.

Coming to other 2016 Emmy winners, Game of Thrones won in the Outstanding Drama Series category. I mean, okay fine, but I personally feel that House of Cards works far better as a series. The recent Game of Thrones season had a lot of filler in my opinion. As for Game of Thrones getting an award for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series, that I can get behind.

Maggie Smith won an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. She received it for portraying Violet Crawley on Downton Abbey. She was against Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Lena Headey (Game of Thrones), Maura Tierney (The Affair), Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones), and Constance Zimmer (UnREAL). Not to offend anyone but considering the competition Maggie Smith was bound to win. She is just so good.
