“Orange is the New Black” stars are having a spectacular time this year. This is the first year the show has shifted from comedy to drama.


Uzo Aduba, who plays Crazy Eyes in “Orange is the New Black,” is continuing her winning streak. Just like last year she has managed to win an Emmy, and she was seen in tears while giving her speech.

Aduba won Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama, and in her speech, she said, “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 I feel for you, Jenji Kohan. I love you so much.”

She continued in an emotional tone, “I thank you for putting belief back in my heart. Thanks for making the show, creating the platform. Thank you to our family at Netflix and Lionsgate. You are incredible. I love you so much for your kindness.”

See seemed quite carried away while saying, “I love you guys and I’m so thankful to stand beside a set of artists who are so brilliant.” She had a lot of people to thank for her success. The “Orange is the New Black” star did not forget to thank her sister for her support.

In the meantime, other “Orange is the New Black” stars are having gala time in the award function. They took pictures and posted on Instagram to share with fans. Some of the pictures were taken during the makeup session while some were taken in the car and at the event. The “Orange is the New Black” stars just rocked the whole thing.
