Uzo Aduba has snagged a richly deserved honor as she won her first Emmy last night!
The “Orange Is The New Black” star won a Creative Arts Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress In A Comedy Series, E! News reports. It’s a little funny to see “OITNB” categorized as a comedy (maybe because it’s not as heavy as the dramas), but no one can deny that Uzo has played the heck out of her character Crazy Eyes.
The actress’ win was just one of the wins that “Orange Is The New Black” brought home on Saturday as the show took the prize for Outstanding Casting For A Comedy Series and Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing For A Comedy Series!
As if winning her first Emmy wasn’t a big enough moment already, Uzo noted on Instagam that she received the award from “the man himself, Mr. Morgan Freeman. #creativeartsemmys.”
When she got home, she shared that she’d also been presented with a special note from her mother, and placed it right alongside her Emmy in a post. She captioned the pic, “I proudly and humbly accept this honor. Thank you so very much. #creativeartsemmys #Uzoamaka #oitnb #teamorange.”
Joe Morton also won the Outstanding Guest Actor In A Drama Series Emmy for his role as Rowan Pope on “Scandal.” His speech must have been epic because Papa Pope delivers some legendary monologues on the hit ABC series. Fans will have to wait until August 24, when FXX airs the Creative Arts Emmys.
On the scientific side of things Neil deGrasse Tyson‘s intergalactic series “Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey” won several Emmys as well! The Fox show took home the prize for Outstanding Music Composition For A Series (Original Dramatic Score), Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music, and Outstanding Sound Editing For Nonfiction Programming (Single Or Multi-Camera).
