Comparisons are often odious but is Allison Mack to be compared to her mentor in the art of conflation or not?
Allison, before she rose to sudden, startling international fame for being second in command of a sex cult that brands women on their groins with her and her mentor’s (Keith Raniere) initials, claimed a nearly as impressive feat: She won her first Emmy.
It is on her website and Facebook: Allison crowed she won an Emmy award on May 23, 2017.
Perhaps readers could help me out. I could not find any record of her winning an Emmy.
I had the same problem finding Keith Raniere’s record of being an East Coast Judo Champion at the age of 11 or his tying the New York State record in the 100 yard dash.
But those happened some years ago. This was 2017 when Allison claimed she won her first Emmy.
I did find a “Daytime Emmy” awarded to some people involved in an episode of an animated show called Lost In Oz: Extended Adventure.
While Allison had a small voice role as the character Evelyn Gale, she herself did not win an Emmy.
The episode won three Emmys.

Allison is not named on any website for having won the award.
She did not win OUTSTANDING PERFORMER IN AN ANIMATED PROGRAM for that went to Kelsey Grammer, as Blinky in Trollhunters|Netflix/Dreamworks Animation
For Allison to claim she won an Emmy because she had a small voice role in a TV episode that won a Daytime Emmy would be similar to someone who claimed they won an Academy Award because the movie they appeared in won an Academy Award. It is not the same thing.
But in Executive Success, it is not what you do, but what you claim you have done that matters.
As for Keith Raniere, for years he said to incredulous listeners that he was one of the fastest sprinters in New York State history. Frankly, the speed he went running down to Mexico made me a believer.
