SAG Awards: Exclusive! ‘Orange Is The New Black’s’ Uzo Aduba Has Serious Pipes



Sunday was a huge night for Orange Is The New Black … not only did the show walk away with a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, but the dramedy’s star, Uzo Aduba, took home the award for Outstanding Female Actor.

Uzo’s role as the popular character, Crazy Eyes, really shows the depth of the actress’ artistry, but you might be shocked to learn that acting isn’t the Boston native’s only major talent.

“She has a set of pipes. She can sing. She can sing like crazy,” the OITNB cast told HipHollywood while on the red carpet for the SAG Awards. But apparently Uzo isn’t the only one. “As can 90% of the cast can, lets be honest,” Emma Myles added.

Co-stars Adrienne C. Moore, Vicky Jeudy, Jackie Cruz, Diane Guerrero later stopped by to show off their singing skills with Shai’s, “If I Ever Fall in Love.”

Maybe OITNB could go to Broadway!?!


The Good, Bad And Ug… Less Flattering At The NAACP Image Awards



This year, the NAACP Image Awards were held on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. As we all know, Dr. King had a dream, and for many on the red carpet it was a dream come true. But unfortunately, there were some nightmares … fashion nightmares.

Here’s our list of then stars who were hot and those who left us bothered. First, let’s start with the hot…

And it doesn’t get hotter than Halle Berry showing half her body. Ms. Berry slayed in this Reem Acra gown reminding then youngin’s that she’s still got it.

And speaking of youngin’s A Wrinkle In Time star Storm Reid may be relatively new to the game, but she showed up on the carpet looking like a vet in this adorable Yanina number.

Yara Shahidi also showed up serving #BlackGirlMagic in this beautiful Vera Wang dress.

And Kerry Washington killed it, also wearing black, in this Michael Kors stunner.

But as we know, with the good comes the bad, and the bad this time around came courtesy…

Danielle Brooks, we love our Orange Is The New Black boo, but this Michael Costello look just didn’t work for her.

Ava DuVernay – Getty Images

We also love Ava DuVernay, but unfortunately this Greta Constatine jumpsuit didn’t have us jumping for joy.

Lil Mama – Getty Images

Lil Mama left us wanting more in this navy blue feathery frock … actually it may be her hair that left us disappointed.

And adding to our disappointment was Letoya Luckett wearing a purple gown that had scallops and bows and slits … oh my!

Do you agree with our hots and nots?
