Loser - Tatiana Maslany, again
Your guess is as good as mine. Last year, I thought BBC America began its push just a little bit too late and Emmy voters could pretend that they just weren't aware that Tatiana Maslany and "Orphan Black" existed. A year later, Maslany has won multiple critics awards, picked up a Golden Globe nomination and had yet another season of the sort of rapturous reviews we normally reserve for Matthew McConaughey. No, "Orphan Black" isn't a real hit. But it's a show with a growing presence and you really can't exist within our media bubble and not know it's out there. And once you know it's out there, how can you possibly pretend it's Maslany's performance isn't Emmy worthy? Bah.
