Orphan Black Fan Starts Crowdfunding Campaign For Tatiana Maslany Award

Because Tatiana Maslany is an amazing actress and did not win an Emmy or Golden Globe for her depiction of EIGHT FREAKING CLONES on BBC America’s Orphan Black, one fan has decided to do something about it. Sarah Evans sent me a link to the Indiegogo campaign she started to get the actress her own special award – a Clone Club Award! “I want Maslany to have an award specifically from her fans,” she writes. “I am commissioning an artist to create a unique awards statue specifically for the fans of Orphan Black to give to her.” Evans is looking to raise just $2,000, which I think is an easily attainable goal for the series’ many dedicated fans. There will be one actual award statue for Maslany and up to three replicas for fans willing to shell out $500. Evans is also asking fans not directly send the actress info about the award, she’d like to surprise her with it. Check out more details and perks at the Indiegogo page.

    Well surprised ruined…

    She deserves it so much! The lack of awards recognition for her has been driving me crazy.

  • AverageDrafter

    I’m sure she’d rather have you donate money to charity.

    Do we really need to come up with some more BS awards to hand out to people we like? Its not like she hasn’t received a bunch of them already for Orphan Black.

    I was about to say! I mean, we know the internet gets everything to everyone, right?

    I know it is likely to get back to her, but a girl can try can’t she? – Sarah E.

  • Jill Pantozzi

    All she asked was for it not to be sent to Tatiana directly. She does need to spread the word if she wants to get it funded.

    This is a really nice idea but I can assure you that Tatiana would rather have you donate the money to charity than to spend it on a trophy.
    It’s a great idea, but think this through…

  • Erin Treat

    “BS award” Nice way to describe this fan’s gesture. Aren’t you a peach.

  • Stealthfire

    For folks saying “donate to charity instead”: there’s no reason Tatiana can’t raffle it off afterwards, and it would probably sell for much higher once it had been in her possession awhile.

    I just got a confirmation email. This campaign is now officially a part of International Women’s Day on IndieGoGo. What does that mean? Firstgiving, IndieGoGo’s nonprofit payment processor, will match $1 for every $25 donated on MARCH 3. IndieGoGo will match $1 for every $25 donated on MARCH 8. So please donate on these days!
