Tatiana Maslany: Robbed? Or The Most Robbed EVAR?

Tatiana Maslany comiccon 2013
NOW… Tatiana Maslany on the Orphan Black panel at last summer’s San Diego ComicCon

As everyone knows, Regina’s Tatiana Maslany, star (or stars?) of BBC’s science fiction clone drama Orphan Black, was nominated for Best Actress In A Television Series-Drama in this year’s Golden Globe Awards. As everyone also knows, she didn’t win. But perhaps some people haven’t yet seen this amusing squeal of outrage from Buzzfeed. You must watch it! It’s got gifs!

In any case, there’s got to be worse things than being an award runner-up to the freaking Princess Bride. Maslany’s insanely talented. Her time will come.

…AND THEN 10 years ago, one of the biggest stars to come out of Saskatchewan was on the cover of a very silly local paper.

A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog's unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
