Orphan Black's Tatiana Maslany up for Critics' Choice Television Award

Broadcast Television Journalists Association and Television Critics Association reveal nominees for annual awards


Canada’s Tatiana Maslany has another shot at awards glory when the Critics’ Choice Television Awards are handed out June 19.

Regina-born Maslany is up for Best Actress in a Drama Series for playing multiple clones in the Space show Orphan Black. Maslany won Best Actress at the Canadian Screen Awards in March and was nominated for a Golden Globe for the role (or rather roles).

The series also won the Best Drama CSA and a Peabody Award in April, although it was left off the Broadcast Television Journalists Association’s list of Best Drama nominees.

FX led the pack with 19 nominations, followed by HBO with 18. The most nominated shows were The Big Bang Theory, Fargo, The Good Wife, Masters of Sex and The Normal Heart.

Masters and Good Wife are competing for Best Drama alongside The Americans, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones and True Detective. Best Comedy nominees are Big Bang, Broad City, Louie, Orange Is the New Black, Silicon Valley and Veep.

Meanwhile, the Television Critics Association also announced nominees for its annual awards, to be handed out July 19.

The Americans, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, The Good Wife and House of Cards are contenders for Best Drama. Comedy nominees are The Big Bang Theory, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Mindy Project, Louie and Veep.

Bad, Thrones and Good Wife will also compete in the “Program of the Year” category against Orange Is the New Black and True Detective.
