Emmy AwardsBBC

"Orphan Black" fans were outraged Thursday morning when lead actress Tatiana Maslany, who plays nearly a dozen parts in the BBC America sci-fi series about cloning, was overlooked in the drama actress category for the second straight year.

In "Orphan Black," Maslany's character, Sarah Manning, is thrown into a world in which her face is not just her own. Human cloning, mystery ailments, religious fanatics and overzealous scientists all converge in this series, in which Sarah's allies and foes include her genetic identicals.

The Canadian actress has won much critical acclaim for her multifaceted performance on the show, as well as prizes such as the Critics' Choice Television Awards in June.
