Clone Club, rejoice! At long last, Tatiana Maslany has finally won the Emmy she always deserved, for the fourth season of Orphan Black.

Maslany has been critically acclaimed for her performance as several different clones ever since the show started, but due to its genre niche and relatively low viewership, she received relatively little awards attention, especially from mainstream awards shows like the Golden Globes and the Emmys. But as her performance just got richer and more challenging every year, they finally started paying her attention, giving her a Golden Globe nom in 2014, two Critics Choice Award nominations, an Emmy nom last year, and now finally a win for Best Actress at the most prestigious TV awards show of the year. 

Although I love Keri Russell on The Americans, this award is still well-deserved. Maslany is not only a talented actress, she has a harder job than anyone else on TV, and manages to make all of the different clones she portrays feel like genuinely different people. And after four years of pulling off this amazing feat, it's finally time for a Clone Club dance party celebration.
