I strongly believe that Orange is the new black has the most diverse, colorful, and interesting characters in ANY tv show right now. The entire cast is brilliant, and its a shame that only Aduba gets awards attention (and will probably continue to do so solely), as I could fill an entire ballot of supporting actresses equally deserving.
But performance aside, who do you think is the best CHARACTER, the one you are most in love with and look forward to watch every episode. Explain why…August 28, 2015 at 5:08 pm #359515
My favourite character is Suzanne (Crazy Eyes). A big part of that is Aduba, but also the way the character is written with so much heart.
On the face of it she is ‘the crazy one’ but when you delve in deeper, you see her true vulnerability which is so touching. Then you have heart breaking moments followed by brilliant comedy.
There’s no character really like her in this or any other show.
Whenever Suzanne is on the screen, I light up, I engage so much more with the show, the character has gripped me from the beginning and continues to do so effortlessly.August 28, 2015 at 6:13 pm #359516

I’ll always love Poussey. She wins my heart every episode.August 28, 2015 at 6:37 pm #359518
My favorite has always been Yoga Jones. I just really like her calm demeanor.August 28, 2015 at 7:26 pm #359519
I love Nicky. I wish we had more of her. I really like Lorna and Red, too.August 28, 2015 at 7:56 pm #359520
Yeah, I’m a big fan of Lorna.August 28, 2015 at 7:56 pm #359521

I also voted for Nicky. She’s both hilarious (Natasha Lyonne knows how to deliver those great one-liners) and moving (her last episode).August 29, 2015 at 12:30 am #359523
This is tough, I love Crazy Eyes, Pennsatucky, Red and Lorne a lot. Lorna has the best backstory, but I’ll go for Crazy Eyes since Aduba’s performance is so good.
Agreed though, outstanding cast.August 29, 2015 at 12:32 am #359524
It’s also ridiculous to think “Game of Thrones” has more actresses nominated this year than Orange. The greatest female ensemble there’s ever been, and probably will ever be, and voters decide to recognise…just one.August 29, 2015 at 2:59 am #359525

And for such a disappointing season for the character. Uzo Aduba deserved all she got for season 1 but she was nowhere near being the best supporting actress in her own show in season 2, not to mention outside of it. Thankfully it got better in season 3. I guess I just hated for Crazy Eyes to be pushed and so easy to manipulate when she was introduced as bold and edgy.
