It's Tatiana Maslany's world and we're all just living in it!

On Sunday night, the Canadian actress won not one but three trophies at the Canadian Screen Awards at Toronto's Sony Centre.

The 31-year-old won for both her TV and movie work: Performance by an Actress in a Continuing Leading Dramatic Role for playing clones in the hit BBC America series "Orphan Black" and Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for her role in the romance drama "The Other Half." She also nabbed a trophy as part of "Orphan Black's" Best Dramatic Series win, as she's a producer on the show.

While accepting the best film actress "Candy" award for her work in "The Other Half," Maslany paid tribute to her costar and boyfriend, British "Downton Abbey" star Tom Cullen.

"My Tom, my other half, you are electric and fearless and generous and the kindness you bring to set is inspiring and the bravery in your work is what I think of every day on set, and every day my whole life. You’re my whole heart.”

Cullen also gave a shoutout to his girlfriend on Twitter after her win.

"That's my girl @tatianamaslany @otherhalfmovie," he tweeted.

Maslany also dedicated her "Orphan Black" win to her fellow clones: "This is for all of my sestras, my beautiful sestras."

The series, which nabbed 14 TV category nominations and picked up the prize for Best Dramatic Series, is currently filming its fifth and final season, which is set to premiere June 10.
