This is the second Emmys win for the Orange is the New Black actress.
It’s another victory for Uzo Aduba.
The Orange is the New Black actress won the 2015 Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for the second year in a row for her portrayal as Litchfield’s Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren.
Aduba, who is set to star in the upcoming The Wiz Live!, beat out Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey), Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), Christine Baranski (The Good Wife), Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) and Lena Headey (Game of Thrones).
“If I could say thank you a thousand times, it could not be enough for how I feel,” she said in her acceptance speech. “Thank you for creating a platform. I love you so much. I appreciate you for putting belief back in my heart.”
