To the collective thrill of the Internet, Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany has finally been nominated for an Emmy in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama series category. The long-awaited and well-deserved nomination is her first.
In celebration, we honor her for this week’s Instant Follow Friday.
Maslany was snubbed at the Emmy’s two years in a row (she was ROBBED!), despite being nominated for a Golden Globe last year, and despite playing clones on clones on clones on Orphan Black (and they’re all amazing).
Finally, Orphan Black fans can celebrate, and celebrate they did.

Now I’m worried that every Best Actress Emmy nominee is Tatiana Maslany. — Louis Virtel (@louisvirtel) July 16, 2015
Is Tatiana Maslany trending with Tweets of Joy yet? — Brian Moylan (@BrianJMoylan) July 16, 2015
Maslany also tweeted her excitement and gratitude:
While she does keep current on Twitter, as of today, Maslany hasn’t uploaded to Instagram in 44 weeks (sadness). And so, here are 6 reasons why Tatiana Maslany should return to Instagram.
1. Her past Instagram photos are a good indication of how excellent her future photos would be.
Can’t wait for the GLAAD awards!!! @tom_cullen @tatmas A photo posted by @tatmas on

2. Her cute tweets are a good indication that her photo captions would be equally amazing.
3. She shows Amy Schumer a lot of love on Twitter, and it would be great to see their relationship “Instagram-official.” (Is that a thing? Like making something “Facebook-official”? Well, it should be.)
4. We’re all for some Tatiana Maslany selfies. I mean…in character(s), out of character(s), we are all for it.
5. Many actors use Instagram to post set photos or cast selfies from their movies or television shows. Who wouldn’t enjoy some behind-the-scenes Orphan Black posts? Though, we do get some from time to time from Orphan Black’s official Twitter account, we wouldn’t saying “no” to some official Maslany branded content.

6. She slays. Period.
That all being said, Maslany is probably too cool for Instagram, so no harm, no foul. (But she’s there @tatmas)
If you’re not already following her on Twitter @TatianaMaslany, go ahead and do so. Not on Twitter? Join today, and make Tatiana be the first person you follow.
HUGE congratulations to Tatiana Maslany on her first Emmy nod. Orphan Black season 4 will air in 2016.
