High five, "Orange" fans.
With a little over a week to go until the main event, the Arts and Entertainment Emmys bode well for several shows, including Game of Thrones, eternal favorite Saturday Night Live and Orange Is the New Black. The Netflix original got a considerable lead on its competition with three awards at Saturday night’s ceremony, which mostly focuses on technical and behind-the-scenes categories.
Congratulations, Ms. Aduba! Well earned!
OItNB fans finally got their wish, as Uzo Aduba, who plays Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren, claimed the award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series on Saturday. Meanwhile the show’s casting director, Jennifer Euston, won for Outstanding Casting for a Comedy Series. The third award was for single camera editing and went to William Turro.
Orangewasn’t the biggest winner though. Gory crowd-pleaser Game of Thrones (weirdest word combination ever) won four whole awards at last night’s ceremony, while those Emmy vets at Saturday Night Live won five.
Uzo Aduba accepted her award alongside Orangeco-stars Laverne Cox and Natasha Lyonne, both of whom were nominated in the same category. The show is also up for an Outstanding Comedy Series award at the main Emmys which will take place on August 25. Onwards to the Primetime Emmys and may all your favorite shows take home awards!
Game of Thrones (no longer starring Charles Danse) won four awards.
