The winners of the 7th Annual EWwy Awards for the Emmy-snubbed were announced live Aug. 18 on EW Radio, and for the second year, the best actress in a drama category boasted the largest margin of victory.

That’s ridiculous. That’s not right,” a grateful Maslany joked when she phoned in to accept the honor and was reminded that fellow nominees included Sons of Anarchy‘s Katey Sagal and Bates Motel‘s Vera Farmiga. “I’m just like, Katey Sagal, that’s crazy. That’s totally insane. Vera Farmiga—I mean, give me a break. That’s crazy.”
