Orange Is the New Black’s highly discussed category switch from comedy to drama series could not prevent Uzo Aduba from prevailing at this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards.
For the second consecutive year, Uzo won an Emmy for her performance as Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren on the hit Netflix series—this time for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (she won in 2014 for Guest Actress in a Comedy Series).
Last year’s winner in this category was Breaking Bad’s Anna Gunn.
