Uzo Aduba Clinches First Emmy Award
Nigerian-American actress Uzo Aduba, star of ‘Orange is the New Black,’ wins Creative Arts Emmy at the 2014 Creative Arts Emmy Awards press room held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on August 16 in Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.
She is now an Emmy winner for her breakout role as a prisoner known as "Crazy Eyes" in Netflix's TV hit show.
Uduba has always been a favorite especially after revealing that she had thought of quitting acting and also her decision to keep her Nigerian name despite the Hollywood pressure.
The series received two other awards, for casting and picture editing, at the creative arts Emmy ceremony Saturday honoring technical and other achievements.
In an emotional speech, Aduba thanked her mother, who came from Nigeria "to make a better life for her family." She also thanked producers and others for a show "that lets everyone be represented in such a beautiful way."
Life is full of surprises. Just when you think it's all coming to an end, you might just be embarking on the main journey of your dreams just like Uzo Aduba.
Congratulations girl!!! You deserve it!!!
