Watch: Tatiana Maslany's Hollywood Culture Shock!

Tatiana Maslany keeps it real. Even on the red carpet at the 2015 SAG Awards.

Donning a beyond-gorgeous striped Oscar de la Renta gown, the Orphan Black star, who is nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series, was hesitant to do E! News' infamous Mani Cam when she stopped to chat with Maria Menounos.

Why? Because she didn't have time to get a manicure. "My hands are so dry!" she said, just before choosing to give the Mani-Cam a thumbs up instead. "That's so cool, but I'm so dry in the hands!"

Have we mentioned how much we love her?!

But the Canadian star's laidback attitude towards her pre-red carpet nailcare routine shouldn't come as much of a surprise given how "surreal" she described the entire experience of being at the SAG Awards.

"It's crazy to be here. I'm so new to this whole thing, so it's always very shocking," Maslany admitted.

Comparing it to her life in Canada, Maslany said, "It's just a whole other world entirely. We don't really have the whole star system thing in Canada. We're a bit more low-key about it. It's pretty surreal!"

And while many, many Clone Club members are fans of Maslany's work (Us too!), the nominee revealed which actor she's crushing on: Orange Is the New Black's Uzo Aduba, a fellow nominee! When Maria said Uzo recently admitted she had a crush on Maslany, the Orphan Black leading lady responded, "Well, I'm crushing on her. I think I was crushing on her first. Now it's mutual. It's great. She's amazing."

Well, we have crushes on both of them, as well!
