UZO ADUBA: Oh, my God! [laughs] I really truly do not know what I want to say. I just – I want to say thank you so much to the Screen Actors Guild for this incredible honor. I want to thank Jenji Kohan for writing a show like this and putting something like this on television, not just for myself, but for our incredible team of actors, to be seen in such a beautiful way.
I want to thank Netflix and Lionsgate – oh my gosh – specifically Ted Sarandos, Cindy Holland, Nina, Lisa, Trim, Neri, Kevin, Sandra. I want to say a huge massive thank to our cast, without whom… [cheers] without whom this is not possible. I love you guys so desperately, so much. This is not done without you, at all, any step of the way.
I want to thank my friends. I want to thank my family, and finally, I just really, really, really truly want to say that the day I got this job was the day I had stopped acting. And to be in a room with all of you amazing human beings, amazing talents… for what I respect and love so much, is really truly the greatest honor. Thank you so very much. God bless you all.
