2015 Emmy noms are out…Game Of Thrones leads all, while Orphan Black‘s Tatiana Maslany finally gets hers
Orphan Black fans rejoice!
The 2015 Emmy nominations list was released today, and Game Of Thrones is king of the hill at 24 nominations (out of HBO’s 126 total…the next closest network was FX Networks at 38.) American Horror Story: Freak Show followed in second at 19. Gotham and The Walking Dead weighed in at 4 a piece.
Among the Marvel series, Marvel’s Daredevil managed 3 nominations, while Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. only managed one.
But the big story is that Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany has finally received a Outstanding Lead Actress, which fans have been clamoring for especially given that she’s a one woman ensemble cast, playing many very different characters in every episode. She’s up against Taraji P. Henson (Empire), Claire Danes (Homeland), Robin Wright (House Of Cards), Viola Davis (How To Get Away With Murder) and Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men), so it’s pretty crowded with talent, but it’s a step closer…
At its Television Critics Association presentation today, BBC America announced that it has renewed its successful original series Orphan Black, along with acquired Kudos/ITV series Broadchurch which stars former Doctor David Tennant. No other details are available at the moment.
BBC America is two for two…its second original scripted series, the clone conspiracy drama Orphan Black, has received an order for a second season of 10 episodes. The show stars Tatiana Maslany in multiple roles, starting off as an orphaned street hustler who sees another woman who looks identical to herself commit suicide, and takes over her identity hoping to get money in the process. But instead she learns that she (and the victim) are not the only ones…and someone wants them all dead.
BBC America’s first scripted series, Copper, starts its second season in June.
