Uzo Aduba won us all over with her role as Crazy Eyes on Orange is the New Black, and now, the actress is winning us over with her phenomenal acceptance speech.
Aduba, who stunned in a custom Jonathan Cohen gown, took home an Emmy Award during Sunday night’s 67th Annual Emmy Awards and delivered an incredibly emotional thank you speech. “I really just want to say thank you one thousand times,” she said. “I am so thankful to stand beside a set of artists who are so brilliant.”
And when thanking her family, who Uzo says has “stood beside me my entire life,” the beauty began to break down in tears. “My sister ChiChi you are my very best friend. I am humbled to call myself your sister. I love you so much.”
This is the second consecutive Emmy win for the star who took home an Emmy last year for Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for the same role.
