Uzo Aduba broke down in tears Sunday night at the Emmy awards.
The Orange Is The New Black star was overwhelmed when she was name the Best Supporting Actress in the comedy category for her hit series.
The 34-year-old Boston native who originally comes from Nigeria 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.’
Her victory will be hard to forget. She delivered an incredible acceptance speech; the BEST acceptance speech of the night…one colored by jubilance, gratefulness, and raw emotion.
Her speech was very emotional and got audience members to tear up.
Aduba, who won her second straight Emmy for her work as Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” thanked Orange Is the New Black series creator Jenji Kohan. She won last year as a guest actress; she was upgraded to a supporting actress this year.
