Tom Cullen and Tatiana Maslany - A host of stars were photographed on the red carpet as they arrived at the 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards which were held at the Shrine auditorium in Los Angeles, California, United States - Sunday 25th January 2015
So it's not the nominees list we wanted. Here's how to make the best out of this year's Emmy Awards.
Few moments are more important in television than Emmy season. Like, how will we know which new shows are good, if the Academy doesn’t tell us? Alternatively, if your favorite show got snubbed this year, you’ll probably still be watching with your best ironic sneer, being all: “This got nominated over Orphan Black?” Hypothetically, of course.
So, whether your shows got nominated or not, here is the definitive guide to watching the Emmys this year. Works for beginners, as well as advanced TV maniacs.
We could have done with a couple more nods for Orange, tbh.
A renewal and a scheduling confirmation for 2015.
BBC America kicked off its Television Critics Association press tour panel on Wednesday (9th July) afternoon with a double whammy of announcements: Orphan Back has been renewed for a third season and the second season of Broadchurch will air on BBC America.
The broadcaster revealed that the second Orphan Black season "became the first ever ad-supported drama series to double its ratings from season one to season two in A25-54 and 18-49 in Live+7," according to HitFix.
The season two finale of the sci-fi drama last month drew 1.376 million viewers in Live+7; a high point for the entire series.
Do you hear that? It's the sweet sound of all your favorite shows coming back.
Orphan Black, aka one of the best shows on television at the moment, got renewed for a third season on Wednesday. It’s no surprise, either – the sci-fi series, which sees the excellent Tatiana Maslany play several different clones in each episode, is currently enjoying its biggest surge in popularity since its launch on BBC America.
The renewal means we'll see more of Tatiana Maslany's face next year. A lot more.
It will return for another ten-episode run (why are you so short, BBC shows?) in Spring 2015. So… Clone Club dance party anyone? If you don’t know what that means, you clearly have not seen enough of Orphan Black. Go back and fix that.

There was plenty of drama on the high seas of celebrity this week, but is one 'Game of Thrones' star about to ride the waves?
Critics' Choice Awards: Last night's Critics' Choice Awards saw the year's best and brightest in television honoured for outstanding performances and shows. Dark humoured crime series Fargo and prison drama Orange Is The New Black were the clear frontrunners with three awards each. Matthew Mcconaughey predictably took home the Best Actor honour for creepy crime thriller True Detective whilst Orphan Black's Tatiana Maslany repeated her 2013 victory with the corresponding female award. Read our run-down of the highlights here.
Tracy Morgan Improving: Comedian Tracy Morgan's condition in hospital has been upgraded by doctors to "fair" after he was left fighting for his life in the wake of a tragic crash that killed his friend, mentor and fellow comedian Jimmy McNair on June 7. Morgan, McNair, comedian Ardie Fuqua, Morgan's assistant Jeff Millea, and one other were all involved in the early hours crash that involved a Walmart truck and an allegedly sleep-deprived driver. Read the full story and find out why Louis C.K. launched a tirade against gossip site TMZ here.
The award show is something of a test run for the next Emmys.
Female driven drama finally had somewhat of a spotlight of the Critics’ Choice TVAwards, with Orange Is The New Black scoring three whole awards - Best Comedy Series, along with two more awards for Supporting Actress in a Comedy (Kate Mulgrew) and Guest Performer in a Comedy (Uzo Aduba). According to E! News Aduba thanked OITNB showrunner Jenji Kohan "for changing my life."
Uzo Aduba's glamorous ensemble matched her shiny new award.
Meanwhile, in other “actresses winning well-deserved awards” Tatiana Maslany of BBC America’s Orphan Black won for Best Actress in a Drama Series. On Orphan Black, she plays multiple, contrasting roles, centered around the show’s futuristic premise of a woman finding out that her life is the result of a cloning research project. Matthew Mcconaughey won the corresponding award for his work on True Detective.
