Emmy Nominations Recap

It's Emmy Nominations Day and that means some highs and lows for our favorite shows. The biggest news of the day is twofold: Tatiana Maslany gets her first Emmy nomination for her work on Orphan Black and Outlander gets all but shut out from the nominations.

Orphan Black

Update: Tatiana Maslany spoke with Variety about her nomination and had this to say:
“I didn’t even expect it at all,” Maslany admitted, momentarily lost for words when Variety spoke to her on Thursday morning. “It’s super nice, and it feels like a nice thing for the show to get that kind of recognition, and for the fans — they’ve been so supportive and protective of us; it feels like a communal thing.”
Maslany was nominated for Best Actress in a Drama for her roles on Orphan Black (and they are many). She was bombared with good wishes on Twitter including congrats from Amy Schumer who was also nominated for her role on "Inside Amy."

The rest of Tatiana's co-stars all chimed in as well with congratulations.

You can see the rest of their responses over at our tumblr blog. The other nominees for Best Actress in a Drama are:

Claire Danes, Homeland
Viola Davis, How to Get Away With Murder
Taraji P. Henson, Empire
Elisabeth Moss, Mad Men
Robin Wright, House of Cards
Tatiana Maslany, Orphan Black

Maslany's nomination was the only nomination for the show.


Also receiving a nomination was Starz' Outlander. It was nominated for "Outstanding Music Composition For a Series (Original Dramatic Score) for Bear McCreary's opening titles.

Unfortunately, that was the only nomination for "Outlander." The show's fans waged an all out campaign leading up to the voting for Emmy nominations trying to get the hashtag #EmmysForOutlander trending. However, it was not mean to be despite some terrific performances from the entire cast and crew. Needless to say, fans were fairly upset.

E! News also believed Sam Hueghan was snubbed for his work on Outlander, listing him among their top Emmy snubs.
