Presenting the Winners of the First Annual Mary Sue Emmys

Spoiler: Tatiana Maslany won something.

cersei emmy

Friends, readers, lend me your eyeballs. (Not really. Take your eyeballs back. That’s gross. You need to use eyedrops.) Last week we asked who you thought should win at last night’s Emmys, the actual winners of which can be seen here. Now, with the glamor and excitement (or, as I’ve heard, complete and utter boredom) behind us, it’s time to reveal the TMS winners. We’ll also be sharing how many votes Tatiana Maslany got in each category, since I encouraged one and all to vote for her as a write-in however many times you saw fit. The Orphan Black fandom needs this small favor. It’s not like their show’s ever going to get recognized by the actual Emmys.

And the winners are!
