This is so thrilling!!
Uzo Aduba, otherwise known as Crazy Eyes on Netflix's hit series Orange Is The New Black, is officially an Emmy-winning actress after taking on the troubled role in Jenji Kohan's latest small screen creation!
A vision in white, Uzo glided across the stage as Morgan Freeman presented her with the HUGE honor!
Words were overwhelmed with tears as the actress spoke at the podium:
"I don't know how to say how incredibly impressed I am to be a part of this show."
She went on to tell stories of her resilient mother, who sacrificed so much in order to live in America and stories of her wonderful cast.
After the night was over, Uzo took to Twitter to express her gratefulness of it all:
Totally deserving! If you haven't seen her wonderful performance of both heart and humor on OITNB, you need to experience it all!
