For many, Tatiana Maslany’s Emmy award was long overdue, and Facebook reacted in a big way!
Over nine million people had 14 millions interactions on Facebook during the television awards ceremony on Sunday, September 18. The number one most popular topic on Facebook that evening was the “Orphan Black” star’s award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.
“Game of Thrones” was the social media site’s second most popular topic, as viewers were firing off on their phones after the show’s big night. The popular television series took home three awards, including Outstanding Drama Series for the second year in a row — shattering Emmy records with 38 total wins.
And rounding out the top three was Sterling K. Brown, who won Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series for his role as lawyer Christopher Darden in “The People v. O.J. Simpson.”
