Uzo Aduba just took home her second SAG Award for Best Actress in a TV Comedy!

The Orange Is the New Black star felt incredibly honored over the big win at the SAG Awards 2016, but she also wanted to use the opportunity to inspire all actors everywhere to continue to follow their dreams and their passion.

After thanking her "amazing" team on OITNB, she delivered some touching words of encouragement.

"I would like to take the opportunity to acknowledge the actors who are at home—not here in this room with us—but hoping to one day be in this room with us to continue to keep trying, to keep plugging, to keep working, no matter if anyone tells you to get out of that line that you're waiting in!"

She added, "Stay in line! You have the chance! It is yours!"

The talented actress beat out some major names in the category, including: Amy Poehler, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Eddie Falco and Ellie Kemper.

Aduba also hit the stage a second time in the evening, joining her entire OITNB cast as they took home the trophy for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.
