Sep 20 2016 - 12:50pm

In case you somehow missed it, Tatiana Maslany won the best actress Emmy [1] for her work on Orphan Black [2]. Before the triumphant night, she was long overdue for an actual win, and we're giving a brief overview explaining why. It goes without saying that we're still as mystified and obsessed as ever with Sarah Manning and her seemingly endless circle of clones. If you're a fan of the show, you're familiar with the confusion of constantly trying to keep up with Tatiana Maslany's chameleon-like performance. Let's talk about all the layers of brilliance.

First, there's Beth Childs.

And Sarah Manning.

Sarah's kind of edgy.

And here's Rachel Duncan.

And Helena.

She's special.

And Cosima.

She's supersmart and doesn't take any nonsense from anyone.

And Alison.

There's also Katja Obinger, Jennifer Fitzsimmons, and three additional clones we never even meet.

And we haven't even gotten to Tony yet.

Yeah, Tony.

The fun doesn't stop there, though. There are levels.
