The Only Emmy Nomination That Matters, According To Twitter

Today was a good day — no, a pretty freakin' fantastic day — for Orphan Black fans.

Throughout all the excitement surrounding this year's Emmy nominations announcement on July 16, which was full of snubs and surprises, social media was all over it and didn't hold back emotions. However, when it comes to Orphan Black's leading lady (or should we say ladies?) Tatiana Maslany, Twitter burst into a virtual happy dance.

Maslany is nominated for Best Actress In A Drama, and it's clearly long overdue. She plays a bazillion characters in the BBC America sci-fi show and has been since 2013. I'd say, it's about time. Her fans showed a lot of love, including Amy Schumer.

Take a look at what the #CloneClub had to say:

I mean, it's hard enough playing one character, am I right? If anyone deserves an acting award, it's this girl. Yes, Twitter, we know you told us so.
