Emmys 2015: Uzo Aduba Wins Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.

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.

The Emmy winner, who quit acting the very same day she got the gig as Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren and has a Golden Globes nod under her belt, is up for a second Emmy Sunday and has become a household name thanks to her water-cooler performance. 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. During the Television Critics Association summer press tour, she chatted with the Star about Emmy love, a Season 3 love interest and sparking the conversation about mental health. I love you so much.” This marks the second win for the actress, who picked up the Emmy for guest actress in a comedy series for the same role last year. I was like, “Oh it’s a turtle, we’re going to hold a turtle.” I think I was picturing those little cartoon turtles, like this little adorable little thing.

Make sure you stay on Netflix Life for the rest of the night for all your Emmy coverage with all winners, reactions, photos, videos, news and everything you can imagine from the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards. In fact, her eyes didn’t remain dry either, as Aduba got more and more emotional the further she got into her speech. “Thank you for making this show, for creating this space, for creating a platform.

I’m clear as to why people call her that, particularly after Season 2, but I feel like people are starting to see all the sides of her and not just the one surface side that’s easy to kind of slap that label on. When her character arrived at Litchfield in the second episode, the description in the script for her was that she’s “innocent like a child, except children aren’t scary.” That gave me a wealth of knowledge on who this woman is. It’s an honest expression of how someone who might not have all of the developmental skills as some of the other inmates responds to certain things. But what really makes this moment so special is that it was entirely authentic, entirely genuine, and entirely unscripted — sure, she may have had the speech ready just in case, but it was clear from the way she burst into tears in the audience that Aduba did not actually expect to win, and was so thrilled and overwhelmed to actually be recognized for her considerable talents.

The other thing is, to have this thing I love so much, this acting tribe that I love being a part of, and to be recognized again, it is just very touching.
