Orange is the New Black Wins 2 Sag Awards

I've been fortunate to be part of the Netflix original series Orange is the New Black. I was delighted to learn the show just picked up two SAG awards. Uzo Adubo, who plays Crazy Eyes, won for outstanding performance by an actress is a comedy series, and the show won for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a comedy series.

Every single one of the cast members I have worked with are awesome and fun to be with, and I just LOVED seeing them at the SAG awards and how happy they were to receive this kind of recognition. The show actually beat out The Big Bang Theory (one of my favorite shows) for ensemble comedy performance, so they had stiff competition.

I recently learned that June 6th will be the release date for all episodes of Season 3. I understand there will be a Season 4, and also I *think*, don't quote me, a Season 5 is planned as well. I hope that I will be able to continue my role as a background inmate when we begin shooting Season 4 later this year.

Congratulations to Orange is the New Black!

Congrats to the show, especially because you played a part in show. I have not seen it, so I cannot comment on that part of it, but I am familiar with Big Bang Theory.

My goal is to be a very bad girl, so I can stay in prison for another season LOL!

Oh, a hard case, then? Well, enjoy. Many happy seasons behind bars.

I have not seen this yet but have the first series on DVD to watch and can't wait to see it

Oh so we have a star in our midst! I don't watch the show but I did hear about it. It's not easy to beat The Big Bang Theory. Their cast is very good as well.

It is very rewarding to see such recognition for the show :)

And when you get done watching Season 1, I believe Season 2 will be out on DVD later this year, after Season 3 becomes available for streaming on Netflix.

It is definitely NOT easy to beat Big Bang Theory! That's a popular show, and so well done - one of my favorites of all time. I'm happy to see the OITNB cast acknowledged with the SAG award.

amyk49 Congratulations to them (and you of course), I have never seen OITNB but to beat Big Bang Theory is has to be a very good show.

CountryWine wrote on January 31, 2015, 7:53 PM

Surprisingly, I didn't even know about OITNB until this past season. Goes to show how little TV I watch.

I love Orange is the New Black. The actress who does play Crazy Eyes in phenomenal. I cannot wait to see the next season!

I really need to sit down and start watching this programme. I did read the book, and found it very interesting, as well as thought provoking.

amyk49 wrote on February 2, 2015, 9:59 AM

I read the book as well. The series follows the basic premise of the book, but does not follow closely at all with regard to storylines. There are some familiar characters from the book, but also many new and different characters, especially as the series continues into Season 2 and 3. But if you like the book, you'll probably really like the series :)

Yes, I know, Uzo Aduba is absolutely amazing in that role! Very talented, and also a lovely person :)
