Tatiana Maslany finally wins in Alexander Wang at the Emmys: adorable or meh?


People are still freaking out on Twitter that Tatiana Maslany actually won the Emmy for Best Actress in a Drama. After so many years of simply being snubbed for a nomination, Tatiana got her second nomination this year and she WON! She wasn’t expecting it either. I don’t think she’s used to this whole rigmarole anyway – she seemed incredibly uncomfortable on the red carpet, talking to Giuliana Rancic. Tatiana chose a relatively simple gown for this year’s Emmys: this is Alexander Wang. I’m not sure what to say here? I don’t have strong feelings for or against this gown. It’s simple and pretty and she makes sheer paneling look elegant. I did get some major Daisy Ridley vibes from her too! Oh, and that’s her boyfriend, Tom Cullen.



Michelle Dockery was there to shill her new show, and she gave the best “bitchface” of the carpet. Speaking as someone who watched every episode of Downton Abbey, I have to say: no one does haughty and aristocratic like Michelle. Her haughty game is so strong, I’m inclined to like her ruffled Oscar de la Renta gown just because I know she could cut me down with a few words. I could have devoted an entire post to Dockery’s elegant bitchface. God, I love her so much!!!



Laura Carmichael still dresses like Lady Edith! As in, she always dresses like an also-ran and it’s not fair to her. This Delpozo gown is unique and I get what she wanted to do, but no. Just no.

    I’d take a boring McCartney gown anytime. Most of her creations are actual disasters.

  2. Crox says:

    The colours on Laura’s dress, ugh.

    I prefer these “boring” gowns like the one Joanne is wearing.

  3. Moxie Remon says:

    Delpozo is so delicate, though. She’s a beautiful lady, but some clothes need the right personalities to stand out.

    • msd says:

      Like Joanne, I think it’s the styling that’s the problem. The dress needed sleek and confident styling – and posture. She looks like she doesn’t like what she’s wearing and it shows.

  4. prissa says:

    I am SO HAPPY for Tatiana!!! She totally deserved to win (should have won sooner). Watching her play the clones is like watching different people act. She is totally believable and makes each character unique.


    • Val says:

      YES!!! I always forget that it’s the same person playing all the clones.

      She looked gorgeous.

      • sunnydaze says:

        I remember seeing a cast pic of OB and getting kind of bummed it was just Sarah and no one else…Like I wish they really were all different actresses, but that’s how good she is, you completely forget the cast is really just a small handful of people. I would love to see more of Felix though, apparently he’s Canadian too – another one I can’t imagine not being who they are on the show. It’s really THAT good!

      • Val says:

        Haha, I know exactly what you mean! I binge-watched the first two seasons and then I started reading recaps and realised it’s just one actress… and I thought wow, it must get really lonely on set? !

    • rosalee says:

      Tatiana Maslany has a terrific smile..love Orphan Black, she is such a terrific actor and I agree wholeheartedly each of her characters are distinct..I don’t have favorites but love it when Allison or Helena show up to add their special brand of comedic levity to the mix. Tatiana richly deserved the Emmy, I was bitterly complaining the Oscars and Emmy’s are a popularity contest a few moments before Rami Malek won for Mr. Robot and when Tatiana won it may have changed my mind just a tad. But as much as I liked O.J. I felt Fargo was robbed.

      • ichsi says:

        +1 to everything you said! Couldn’t agree more. I wish both her and Rami long and successful careers. Also yes, those are some amazingly classy sheer panels. Simple but beautiful.

    • Naya says:

      She is amazing! I dont remember being this happy to see a stranger win an award.

    • Ronaldinhio says:

      agreed, love her and actually like this dress

    • PrincessMe says:

      +1 to this thread. Love her and so happy she won.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I love her too! So glad she won, I was shocked!

      Her dress is beautiful. I like the simple lines, but the floating bodice keeps it interesting.

    • Blue says:

      This! Love Tatiana!

    • Chewbacca says:

      First time I saw Tatiana act it was in the second Ginger Snaps movie. She made me terrified of her, she was eleven. She pulled off that creepy little sociopath so well it’s not funny. I’ve been a fan ever since.

    • Me Three says:

      Me three! I LOVE Orphan Black and she’s amazing in it. She’s so good that when I watched Woman in Gold where she plays the younger version of the character Helen Mirren plays I didn’t realize it was her. Yay!

  5. Ollie says:

    Don’t know who she is but she looks like Alyssa Milano. Very pretty.

  6. Nicole says:

    Love Tatiana and it’s about time she won an Emmy. She played 12 distinct characters on one show.

  7. Tash says:

    Tatiana look lovely! She and Tom look great together.

  8. lucy2 says:

    I was so happy for Tatiana! I wasn’t expecting it, I thought she’d forever be underrated for her amazing work on Orphan Black, so what a thrill to see her win. And I loved the dress for her – simple but interesting, great lines, modern.
    I don’t mind Michelle’s dress, but Laura, why???
    Joanne’s may be boring but for a Stella, it’s actually good.

  9. Kitten says:

    Tatiana’s boyfriend is so hot….

    Also, I need to watch Orphan Black, apparently.

    • I Choose Me says:

      Seasons one and two are the best. And her acting will make you wonder how she went un-nominated all those years.

      • msd says:

        fyi, Tatiana’s boyfriend was one of Lady Mary’s suitors on Downton Abbey, although the film I would recommend is Weekend, a British, indie gay romantic drama.

        Tatiana winning for a weaker season of OB is such an Emmy thing. They don’t exactly have their finger on the pulse TV-wise, which is why I was surprised Malek won.

  10. CornyBlue says:

    Awh look at that. All the ladies I adore in a post. Tatiana Maslany finally winning was so so good I cried for her. She has been the most underrated actress on TV for so damn long .
    Michelle Dockery is always a fave but i feel she looks better in the flapper dresses and such .

  11. I Choose Me says:

    Yay! For Tatiana. Orphan Black has declined in recent years plotwise but her acting is still stellar. Oh and I love her dress. Simple and elegant and the two piece look makes it stand out.

  12. Nev says:

    Michelle was my fave look of the night. Amazingly chic.

    • mee says:

      very pretty and natural and love her simple red dress
      I also like Michelle Dockery’s dress. Normally I wouldn’t like all the ruffles but these are clean and she carries it off well w/her attitude

  13. AgeofBellendia says:

    I don;t care what anyone was wearing, TAT GOT THE EMMY!!!!!!!!! So happy right now! (And Daisy Ridley? Really? I don’t see it) Tatiana’s body is killer – athletic but not scrawny and that dress is all class. Love her! (Can you tell? :P)

  14. yuck says:

    I often liked Edith’s DA clothes more than Mary’s. And I have seen Laura Carmichael in some nice things out of character. But I don’t now what to say about what she had on last night. Is any designer copping to that mess?

    • Chrissy says:

      Maybe she lost a bet. That dress looks like a reject from the Goodwill. She really looks unhappy too. Her posture says it all.

  15. Eden75 says:

    I think all of Canada when apesh*t when Tatiana won. Yay! So happy for her. The arm candy isn’t too bad either 😀

  16. QQ says:

    HURRAY!! I love tatiana, Her bae, Her Dress and Orphan Black

    BUDDY!!!! 3rd Lady!??!?! the definition of Scrolldown Fug!!

    ALSO re: – she seemed incredibly uncomfortable on the red carpet, talking to Giuliana Rancic… NO ONE topped with Joy and Comfort into Giuliana, except Sarah Hyland, I mean It

  17. Pants says:

    Tatiana’s a great actress and she totally deserved to win. She looked great too! I was a little sad for a moment that Keri Russell didn’t win (because she’s amazing on The Americans), but this award was rightly deserved.

  18. Lexie says:

    When I think of Laura’s dress on Cate Blanchett, hair swept up and shoulders back, I have a different feeling about it.

  19. Kilo Tango says:

    I love Tatiana’s dress but I’m HONKING for Tom Cullen.

  20. Littlematchstickgirl says:

    You wanna talk about a horrible dress. Did you see what Sarah Hyland wore ? What made her decide that is beyond me. Horrible, horrible dress.

  21. Kri says:


  22. minime says:

    yey!!! much deserved win! she’s amazing in orphan black! I hope this gives her some more visibility so that she can get more and more roles 🙂

  23. Umm says:

    Why hasnt the US worked out that Downton is a soap opera yet?
