Uzo Aduba wins Emmy for lesbian character of 'Crazy Eyes' on  Orange Is the New Black

Uzo Aduba’s portrayal of lesbian prisoner Suzanne ‘Crazy Eyes’ Warren on Orange is the New Black not only made an impression with viewers, it also vowed Emmy voters.

On Saturday (16 August), Aduza was announced as the winner of Outstanding Guest Actress In A Comedy Series Emmy.

Among her competitors were OITNB co-stars Natasha Lyonne and Laverne Cox. Other nominees in the category were Tina Fey and Melissa McCarthy for their work hosting Saturday Night Live and Joan Cusack for her work on Shameless.

Aduza was presented her award by Morgan Freeman during the Creative Arts Emmys ceremony at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles.

‘I don’t know how to say how incredibly impressed I am to be a part of this show day in, day out,’ Aduba said from the podium.

Backstage, she tearfully told reporters: ‘I feel so full, that’s why the tears come out. I’m stuffed. My cup runneth over right now. Mission accomplished, thank you.’
