Orange is the New Black Dominated at the Screen Actors Guild Awards from Podium to Party

Uzo Aduba was fantastically upbeat on the red carpet on the way into the Shrine Auditorium for the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards. A few minutes later, the Orange is the New Black actress was nearly in tears as the evening’s first winner, confessing, “The day I got this job was the day I stopped acting.” She elaborated backstage that she was about to give up on the profession when she was cast as Crazy Eyes on the Netflix series. There also wasn’t a dry eye in the house when Lea Delaria (Big Boo) got choked up backstage talking about the LGTBQ community’s backing of the show, saying, “West Hollywood is dancing in the streets,” before having to stop for a moment. “I never thought the world would change in my lifetime in the way it has. It’s very, very amazing.”

A glowing Viola Davis caused a few more lumps in throats when she came back to the interview room following her win for How To Get Away With Murder. The actress talked about diversity in women being portrayed onscreen. “We want to see ourselves, we want to be inspired by that,” she said. “We don’t want to keep seeing these fictionalized images of women that make us feel bad about ourselves.”

After Emma Stone accidentally tripped Naomi Watts onstage when Birdman won the evening’s last statue, it took me a while to find the entrance to the speakeasy-inspired after-party. That was the point. When I finally found the door and walked inside, what lay before me was probably the most gorgeous, enormous People/Entertainment Industry Foundation bash to date, with luxurious décor lit by scads of candles and Wolfgang Puck eats from pumpkin tortellini to black forest parfaits. The Orange is the New Black cast comprised at least one fourth of the party-goers, and Aduba couldn’t go two steps without someone asking for a selfie with her.

I ran into Patricia Arquette, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and Eric Stonestreet out in the smoking section and left a few hours later with Brits David Thewlis and Simon McBurney after grabbing a cup of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee for the road. The partin’ shot that summed up the entire night for me? One of the cast members of Orange is the New Black hung her fancy velvet handbag from the arm of her SAG award for safekeeping.
