Orange Is the New Black’s Uzo Aduba took home a unique Emmy win on Sunday. The Medfield native won her second consecutive Emmy for her role as Litchfield inmate Suzanne Warren, but in a completely different category than the first. Last year she won in the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy category, and this year for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama.

With that, Aduba’s acceptance speech Sunday night was abundant in both tears and thank-yous.

“I really just want to say thank you a thousand times. If I could say thank you a thousand times it would not be enough to cover the amount of thanks that I feel for you, Jenji Kohan. I love you so much, I appreciate you for putting belief back in my heart,’’ she said, while unleashing all the tears that somehow left her makeup unscathed.


Uzo Aduba: the prettiest crier ever.
