Hollywood loves the ladies of Litchfield!

Orange is the New Black's Uzo Aduba kicked off the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Award with a well-deserved win in the Outstanding Performance by an Actress in a Comedy category.

Not only did Aduba beat out comedy heavy-hitters like Edie Falco, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Amy Poehler, the first-time nominee shined in bright yellow gown when accepting her Actor statuette.

Know for playing "Crazy Eyes" in the smash Netflix series, Aduba was stunned to tears during her acceptance speech. "The day I got this job was the day I had stopped acting. And to be in a room with all your amazing talents, for what I respect and love so much, is just the greatest honor," she said to the room full of Hollywood's biggest A-listers.

But the prison praise didn't stop there!

Shortly after Aduba snagged a win, the entire cast of Orange Is the New Black took the stage to accept the prize for Outstanding Cast in a Comedy.

This was the first year that the Netflix dramedy was nominated, which made it quite the surprising upset as Modern Family had dominated this category each year for the past four years.

Orange's 40-person cast stood in an excited rainbow of colorful dresses as Aduba took the microphone once again to accept the award on behalf of the cast.
