On Friday, we’ll chat with Uzo Aduba about her breakout role in the Netflix series “Orange is the New Black.” The comedy series is riding high, reaping 13 Emmy nominations for its first season including a Best Comedy Guest Actress bid for Aduba. Join us for our live chat with her on Friday (July 25) at 5.00pm PT/8.00pm ET on our home page.
Aduba is our frontrunner to take home an Emmy. In “Lesbian Request Denied,” the epsiode she submitted to Emmy judges, her character Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren sets her sights on new inmate Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling), serenading her in the prison yard and pursuing her throughout the episode.
We will ask the actress about her scene-stealing turn in this episode, and will field questions from fans about her loveable albeit unhinged character. We will also talk about her recent Critics Choice TV Award win and find out her reaction to being an Emmy nominee for her first major TV role.
Can Aduba continue her recent award-winning form with an Emmy win? Predict Comedy Guest Actress below and come back for our live chat.
