Yay Tatiana Maslany won, and Andre Braugher-yes. Billy Bob Thornton was so good in Fargo so he deserved that too. Also Fargo's Alison Tollman was a worthy winner.
Why is Orange in the comedy category? It's a drama with some comedic touches. When I first saw it advertised as a comedy that put me off watching, cause I couldn't see a comedy series set in a prison. But I'm glad I learned what it really is.

Tatiana Maslany! Uzo Aduba! And it isn't just them. I'm happy with nearly all of the winners.
