As much as I pretty well know this is going to happen, it pisses me off. Ms. Maslaney deserves better than this.

Perhaps the Emmy brain trust (sic) couldn't figure out which of several excellent actresses on Orphan Black to give it to?

you said it!

while every actress is talented, they have to roll out the same old same old, like Julia Roberts?? c'mon. I really don't get why 1) she's always that highly thought of and 2) she's already had her time of glory. isn't it time to pass the torch? aren't there other talented actresses more deserving?

Game of Thrones, yes I can see it & actors deserving noms.

maybe the show isn't mainstream enough or she's not made the Hollywood rounds. or maybe the Emmy group couldn't spell her name

at least she knows she & the show have an avid fan base.

I don't bother watching Emmys & Oscars because it always seems to be a popularity contest as much as it is about raw talent.

Mental gears were stripped when the academy was considering whether to give her the "best actress" or "best supporting actress" award (seriously, though, that would have been a *hoot* for them to do just that!).

We feel your pain, Tatiana. The Academy knows not what it does.

Probably because they don't watch TV. Seriously, many of them don't. It's why you see "movie stars" getting automatic nominations when they appear on TV shows simply because it's a name the Academy voters recognize.

It's a pretty pathetic system for an industry awards show. The Peabody's and TCA awards shows are much more emblematic of the best the television industry has to offer. But for some strange reason, the Emmy's get all the pub and all the love.

This just proves that the Emmy awards are a joke. I definitely won't be watching. There is no way in hell that Tatiana Maslany doesn't deserve a nomination for best actress.

Do BBCA shows usually get nominated? I can't remember any of their shows getting nominations anytime recently. It's unfortunate as Tati deserves at least a nomination for her role.

It's been said that the surest way to get an Emmy nomination is to already have gotten one the year before. Or, as I said above, be a movie star.

Like Tim Goodwin said in a piece yesterday, it's a broken system and needs to be fixed. It's ridiculous Tats or Keri Russell (for her amazing work in 'The Americans', which also deserved a best series nod) weren't even nominated.

Only if they air on PBS - then they're considered "worthy".

Apparently, though, British shows can only get an Emmy if they're period costume dramas. For anything else, it's BAFTA or nothing.

Even worse that Eva Green wasn't nominated for her most outstanding performance(s) (IMO better than both Tats or Keri Russell- whom were both excellent) in Penny Dreadful. Although, there's some question as to if Penny Dreadful/cast were eligible for this years vote because of it's late air date?

Don't think they were eligible, look for that show next year.

I agree with what's being said here about Tatiana being robbed; to me there's simply no comparison between the work she's doing on this show and any other actress on TV. The highest compliment I can give her is that while watching you completely buy that they're all different people. Just the technical challenges must be enormous and to make it so absolutely real is an incredible achievement. Not to mention she's in every frame of every shot (and sometimes several times over!)

I also agree about the academy going for the big (read, movie star) names; they always seem to do that. I don't know if it's a prestige thing or just busy professionals who go with what they know. I was a voting member of NARAS (Grammys) for many years and I have to admit there were years when I hadn't had time to listen to everything, so I voted for who I knew.

there is one consolation prize for Tatiana in this - she's getting a whole lot of press about not being nominated. all the people who don't know anything about Orphan Black may discover how good she really is.

can't hurt her career just seeing her name mentioned in numerous Emmy headlines for the past 2 days.

And having people like Claires Danes, again! and Michelle Dockery? I'm bored with Danes' quivering chin and Dockery, while she is good I don't recall anything that would be considered "best of show" in her recent performances on Downton.

It would be nice to see Tatiana get some awards... but I think she's getting a lot of recognition and praise all over the place now. She is still probably underrated for her efforts on this show... but the awards shows are a different kind of popularity contest. They aren't so much awards for performance, as they are a performance show themselves... so they tend to nominate people that will give their show ratings... it's a "reality" show when you really boil it down.

I'm not insulting the people who accept awards... just saying their nomination, lack of nomination, winning, or losing is not a sign of their actual accomplishments or actual popularity/approval for their work.

Yeah baby!  It's Halloween!

It doesn't help that she is on a genre show, and one that people tend to look down their noses at. She can commiserate with Keri Russell and Emmy Rossum who has done some really good work on Shameless and has yet to be nominated. I wish all the buzz around her not getting a nom would lead to more people watching.

Emmy votes are audited. I'll bet if they they look at the raw data they'll find with the # of votes nearly evenly split between Sarah, Allison, Cosima and Helena with no character having enough in total to be nominated.
