Gold Derby has exclusively learned that Tatiana Maslany will submit the “Orphan Black” episode “Certain Agony of the Battlefield” to the Emmys. This marks her first Best Drama Actress Emmys bid after previous nominations at the Golden Globes and SAG Awards. She won the Critics’ Choice TV Award in 2013 and 2014 as well as the TCA Award in 2013.
On the BBC America drama series, Maslany plays a variety of clones named Sarah, Alison, Cosima, Helena, Rachel, and Krystal. In this episode, which was number six in the third season, “Felix is desperate for information on Sarah’s whereabouts so he pressures the still-ailing Rachel for any shred of a lead. And, in order for Donnie and Alison to take their money-making endeavor to the next level, she must convince Jason Kellerman that her unique business plan will work.”
Below: Watch our recent video chat with Maslany where she discusses the most recent season of “Orphan Black” and her awards success so far.
We will continue to reveal all other Emmy submissions this year for the series and acting races as they are provided to us by networks, studios, or personal reps.
