Nigerian-American actress Uzo Aduba wins Emmy award
| August 18, 2014
The Nigerian-American actress Uzo Aduba has given her Netflix series, Orange is the New Black, its first acting award by winning the Emmy for Best Guest Actress in a Comedy at the 65th annual Creative Arts Emmys, which took place last Saturday, August 16. The series also picked up two other awards, for casting and editing, that night. The 33-year-old actress beat out her fellow co-stars, Laverne Cox and Natashy Lyonne, for the award and broke down on stage after accepting the award from, Morgan Freeman, one of her acting heroes. She said âI donât know how to say how incredibly impressed I am to be a part of this show, day in, day out.â At the press room, Aduba spoke about how her mother had travelled to the US to give her and her siblings a better life. âWeâre talking about a woman who survived pollo, who survived civil war and genocide, and sacrificed so much to come to the United States for her five children to have a chance. And the idea that this moment is even happening. You know my mom named me Uzoamaka, which means âthe road is goodâ, because the road indeed was a good one, despite its challenges for her.â The award bodes well for the Netflix series, which is nominated for Best Comedy Series in the coming 66th Primetime Emmy Awards happening next week, on August 25.
