Uzo Aduba

Crazy Eyes won an Emmy, and we couldn't be more thrilled!

At Saturday's Creative Arts Emmys, Uzo Aduba from Orange Is the New Black took home the award for Guest Actress in a Comedy, and we have to admit, we got a bit weepy as she hit the press room backstage to gush, "I feel so full. That's why all the tears came out."

It's Aduba's first Emmy nomination, and also her first year being part of an Emmy-nominated show as OITNB is up for Outstanding Comedy Series on Monday.

So to celebrate some of our favorite first-timers this season, we asked them five burning questions. Here's Aduba's answers:

1. What was your first job?

My first job was babysitting for one of my neighbors.  It's funny because the kid I would baby-sit for is all grown up now and lives and works in New York and I'm having dinner with him this week.

2. Which other TV show would you love to guest star on?

SCANDAL!!!!  I just want to hear Olivia Pope tell me "it's handled" once.

3. List three things you'll have with you on Emmy night.

My family, my cast, my joy.

4. Who do you most want to share a drink with?

That's a long list but if Oprah's there all bets are off.

5. Who do you most want to take a selfie with?

Please refer to Question 4.

Check back this week for what the rest of our Emmy first-timers had to say!
