It”s been a long road, but we finally did it! Tatiana Maslany, star of the hit BBC show “Orphan Black,” received her first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.

See the complete list of 2015 nominations! 

If you”re new to this particular fandom drama, a quick and dirty primer. On “Orphan Black,” Tatiana Maslany plays five main characters in the first season, and six in later seasons. This on top of one-off characters that come and go from the plot. Each one is a clone conceived via in vitro fertilization and comes with their own background, personality, and quirks.

So it”s been a bit of a sticking point that Maslany has been overlooked year after year by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. Fans had braced themselves for another year of disappointed this morning.

But then a miracle happened. Tatiana was nominated.

Of course, the Internet promptly lost it. Like proud parents whose kid just came from behind to score the winning point in a game of sportsball, celebrations were fierce and sincere.
