Crazy Eyes Won An Emmy!

If you thought Taystee winning the Mock Job Fair was exciting, hold on to your prison-issue beanie. Last night, Uzo Aduba won an Emmy for her portrayal of Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren on Orange Is The New Black. Scoring a tidy $10 credit for your commissary account kind of pales in comparison.
Morgan Freeman presented Aduba with the Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy at yesterday's Creative Arts Emmys. Though costars Laverne Cox and Natasha Lyonne had also been nominated, there was just no besting Crazy Eyes' season two transformation into a brainwashed bully.
The actress risked getting a lecture from Chapman about crying when she teared up during her emotional speech.

"I feel so full, that’s why the tears come out," the actress told reporters backstage. "I’m stuffed. My cup runneth over right now. Mission accomplished, thank you."
Here's hoping Red can fit that statuette into a bag of mulch. That's some serious contraband.
