Michael O’Connell and Bryn Elise Sandberg of The Hollywood Reporter are reporting that Orange is the New Black’s Uzo Aduba has won her first Emmy as outstanding guest actress in comedy during Saturday’s Creative Arts Emmys. Aduba plays the role of “Crazy Eyes” on the hit Netflix series that takes place in a women’s correctional facility.
O’Connell and Sandberg write:
“Aduba gives her celebrated Netflix series its first acting kudo at the Emmys, and was one of the streaming service’s seven awards announced during the evening.
“‘I don’t know how to say how incredibly impressed I am to be a part of this show day in, day out,’ said a teary-eyed Aduba from the podium after presenter Morgan Freeman handed the awestruck actress her award.
Backstage, the 33-year-old found herself on the verge of crying once again. ‘I feel so full, that’s why the tears come out,’ she told reporters, adding: ‘I’m stuffed. My cup runneth over right now. Mission accomplished, thank you.'”
