Uzo Aduba, Golden Globe Awards


Uzo Aduba's career just keeps getting better, and the Orange Is the New Black star can hardly believe it. 

"Crazy. I just couldn't believe it," Aduba said to Ryan Seacrest on E!'s Live From the Red Carpet about her second Golden Globes nomination. "The first time I was blown away, but now I feel like if my head weren't connected my body, it would be rolling on the floor or something." 

Aduba nabbed an Outstanding Supporting Actress Emmy in 2015 for her portrayal of Crazy Eyes on the Netflix series, and to top off her incredible year she earned rave reviews for her performance as Glinda the Good Witch in NBC's The Wiz Live!

"It was awesome. It was amazing," she gushed. "To work with Queen Latifah and Mary J. Blige and Common and Shanice [Williams], who was our Dorothy, just the sweetest thing. Everybody was there to bring their ‘A' game and for the right reasons."

She also gave us major squad goals envy by talking about her recent trip to Hawaii with her OITNB cast, which made us so jealous we can barely stand it. 

"We were having a good time," Aduba said about the trip. "We're a connected cast, absolute real-life friends. We wanted to go out, have a good time, relax. It was amazing." 

Call us next time you guys go, OK Uzo?
