But will she get a trophy for every clone?

It’s official: Orphan Black‘s Tatiana Maslany finally has an Emmy! The actress, who has been praised by critics and fans for years for her work as all of the Leda clones on Orphan Black — and was nominated for the first time in this category last year — took home the award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama during Sunday’s 68th annual Emmy Awards.

“I should have written this down,” she said, trying to think of what to say. “Thank you so much. There are so many people I’m indebted to.”

Maslany went on to thank her team and her show’s cast and crew, saying, “Thank you for this incredible dream job.”

Maslany beat out fellow nominees Viola Davis (How to Get Away With Murder), Taraji P. Henson (Empire), Robin Wright (House of Cards), Claire Danes (Homeland), and Keri Russell (The Americans).
