Uzo Aduba took home the first award tonight at the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards when she won for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series for her work on Orange is the New Black.
“Oh my god, I really, truly do not know what to say,” Uzo said when she got on the stage. “I just want to say thank you so much to the Screen Actors Guild for this incredible honor.”
“Finally I just really, really, really truly want to say, the day I got this job was the day I stopped acting and to be in a room with all you amazing human beings, amazing talents, for what I respect so much and love so much, is really truly the greatest honor. Thank you so very much. God bless you all,” Uzo said. The next award of the night happened to go to Orange is the New Black for Outstanding Ensemble!
