Woop, woop! The 2016 Emmy Nominations were announced this morning and so many wonderful nods for those of us nerds out there!

First of all, congrats to our girl, Tatiana Maslany, for her second Emmy nomination for her performance(s) in Orphan Black, and dammit does she deserve it. Also, 23 nominations for Game Of Thrones, including Lena Heady, Maise Williams and Emilia Clarke going toe to toe for Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Drama Series. My vote’s for Lena, but I don’t have a vote so I’ll save it for my viewing night party in which I’ll stride around my living room and proclaim “shame, shame!” every time someone gets a pick wrong.
