It was a big night for Uzo Aduba and the cast of Orange is the New Black at the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards. Aduba, who plays “Crazy Eyes” received the first award of the night nabbing an Actor for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actress in a Comedy Series.
Aduba, who stunned wearing a yellow Angel Sanchez gown, got teary eyed while accepting her award revealing that on the day she got the job for the show she had quit acting. “I want to thank my friends. I want to thank my family, and finally, I just really, really, really truly want to say that the day I got this job was the day I had stopped acting,” she confessed. “And to be in a room with all of you amazing human beings, amazing talents… for what I respect and love so much, is really truly the greatest honor. Thank you so very much. God bless you all.”
Moments later, the Netflix series took home an Actor for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series beating out The Big Bang Theory, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Veep and Modern Family. Aduba accepted the award on behalf of the show and stood on stage with her entire cast including Laverne Cox and Danielle Broooks.
While on the red carpet, the cast and crew raved to HipHollywood about Uzo and expressed how much the actress is adored. “The transformation that Uzo goes through when she works, to know her personally, is to see the level of that transformation. The real depth and beauty of it,” co-star Joel Marsh Garland said.
