Tatiana Maslany’s Emmy ‘Snub’ Referenced By ‘Billy On The Street’ (VIDEO, TWEETS)

It’s no secret that “Orphan Black’s” Tatiana Maslany was snubbed by the Emmys, and Billy Eichner wouldn’t let the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (ATAS) forget that on awards night.

The comedian hosted a special segment of his “Billy on the Street” show as part of the Emmys broadcast alongside awards host Seth Meyers. The pair walked up to people and gave them a dollar if they agreed with Eichner’s opinions on pop culture.

He told people one thing that no Orphan Black fan can deny: Canada’s own Maslany was notably overlooked by the awards.

Go to 3:15 on the video above to see how people reacted and tell us what you think in the comments below.

Just know it was wrong and that’s the only way to feel about it, in our humble opinion, and that of a number of Twitter users.

Interesting Fact: Tatiana Maslany could play all the characters these actors and actresses are nominated for. #EmmyForMaslany

#EmmyForMaslany cuz @tatianamaslany can play a con artist, soccer mom, geek scientist, a ruthless woman, an assassin, a dude, among others

I assume no one gives credence to the Emmys based on the Tatiana Maslany snub alone.

‘Orphan Black’ co-stars Tatiana Maslany, Jordan Gavaris accept EWwys

The winners of the 7th Annual EWwy Awards for the Emmy-snubbed were announced live Aug. 18 on EW Radio, and for the second year, the best actress in a drama category boasted the largest margin of victory. In 2013, Orphan Black‘s Tatiana Maslany won with 43 percent of the vote; this year, 61 percent of readers cast their ballots for her. “I think people have been bribed, or it’s been rigged somehow. That’s ridiculous. That’s not right,” a grateful Maslany joked when she phoned in to accept the honor and was reminded that fellow nominees included Sons of Anarchy‘s Katey Sagal and Bates Motel‘s Vera Farmiga. “I’m just like, Katey Sagal, that’s crazy. That’s totally insane. Vera Farmiga—I mean, give me a break. That’s crazy.”

Maslany also talked about Orphan Black‘s emotional panel at Comic-Con (“The Clone Club community is such a supportive one and so lovely and so accepting—it’s the greatest gift to know that the show allows for a community like that”) and getting the chance to drive her first golf cart at Comic-Con as well (“It was one of my favorites moments in my life—it was pretty amazing”). The full interview is below.

Her co-star Jordan Gavaris (Felix) picked up his first EWwy for best supporting actor in a drama and delivered the awards’ most earnest acceptance. “I’m stunned. This is a wild, wild honor to even be in a category with some of these actors: Norman Reedus, Peter Sarsgaard, my god. I don’t win anything in life, you know what I mean. I was, like, the awkward kid who didn’t go to prom, but I did—nobody noticed though,” he said, laughing.

‘Orphan Black’ Season 2 Details: What’s Ahead For Sarah And The Other Clones

“Orphan Black” Season 2 isn’t hitting airwaves until April 2014, but new details about the BBC America drama have emerged. The network announced production has started on the new season of “Orphan Black” with Tatiana Maslany, Jordan Gavaris, Dylan Bruce and Maria Doyle Kennedy returning for the new episodes.

“Season 1 of ‘Orphan Black’ delivered an action packed, edge-of-your-seat thrill ride featuring a critically-acclaimed star turn by Tatiana Maslany,” Perry Simon, general manager of BBC America, said in a statement. “The rabid fan base known as the ‘Clone Club’ is growing every day as audiences discover this unique show and gear up for an exciting second season that takes us further down the rabbit hole.”

Season 2 kicks off with Sarah (Maslany) on a desperate race to find her missing daughter, Kira. But her tactics spark a war with pro-clone Rachel (Maslany), which divides the clones. Look for Sarah to discover more about her past as mysterious newcomers arrive on the scene. To date, Maslany has played seven different characters on “Orphan Black.” Kevin Hanchard and Michael Mando will also reprise their roles for Season 2.

“We’re truly amazed at the incredible response we received from TV critics and fans alike since the beginning of this series,” David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg, executive producers and co-presidents at Temple Street Productions, said in a statement. “We’re delighted to have the opportunity with our supportive partners BBC America and Space to continue on this amazing journey and to answering some of the impending questions fans were left with from the end of last season.”

And if you just can’t wait until 2014 for another glimpse of your favorite “Orphan Black” stars, you can see Maslany during her upcoming guest arc on “Parks and Recreation,” and Bruce on both “Arrow” and Lifetime’s “Flowers in the Attic.”
