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.

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
