Uzo Aduba won the Screen Actors Guild Award for best actress in a television comedy series.
Twice is nice for Uzo Aduba. The Orange is the New Black star raked in another Screen Actors Guild Award for best actress in a comedy.
It is Aduba’s second consecutive win for playing Suzanne ‘Crazy Eyes’ Warren on Netflix’s ‘Orange is the New Black.’
The 34-year-old thanked her “phenominal cast,” and also series creator Jenji Kohan for.....
“creating a show like this and putting this on television, creating a show that reflects so many people.”
She also spoke to “the actors who are at home, not here in this room with us but hoping one day to be in this room with us,” telling them to “keep trying, to keep plugging to keep working. No matter if anyone tells you to get out of that line that you’re waiting in, stay in line, you have the chance, it is yours.”
Through three seasons, Aduba’s Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren has been one of the more complex characters on OITNB, a show rife with them. Throughout the rough patches, her earnestness never wavers and always shines.
Aduba broke through in a category with elite comic company. She nabbed the hardware over three-time winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus as the self-centered President in Veep, Amy Poehler as an idealistic city government go-getter in Parks and Recreation, Ellie Kemper as a recently freed prisoner of a religious fanatic in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and Edie Falco as the titular Nurse Jackie.
