At a recent Emmy event in Los Angeles for Netflix hit series “Orange is the New Black,” Emmy winner Uzo Aduba chats with Gold Derby about adding two SAG trophies to her awards collection this year — one as part of the ensemble and the other as Best Female Actor in a Comedy Series.
“I don’t know if I’ve ever experienced my mind go that blank before in my life,” she says of her victory for playing Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren. “It just literally turned off for a minute. It just felt so out of out of body and unbelievable. I could not believe it. I just could not believe it. It just felt beyond my comprehension.”
