Orange Is the New Black Cast Hits the Dance Floor After Uzo Aduba's Historic Emmys Win
The Orange Is the New Black cast knows how to party.
So, the Litchfield ladies celebrated at the Netflix Emmy Awards afterparty. The Orange crew gathered at Chateau Marmont after the award ceremony and danced the night away to songs like “Love Shack” by the B-52’s and Beyoncé‘s “Single Ladies.”
Aduba, 34, arrived to the afterparty with her sister and a few friends and soon shared an embrace with costar Taylor Schilling, who plays Piper Chapman on the show.

Laverne Cox (Sophia Burset) didn’t join the dancing but hugged Aduba and congratulated her before leaving the party with her entourage.
Aduba seemed to be on cloud nine as she celebrated, and with good reason. Her Emmy win made history: The 34-year-old is the first person since Ed Asner to win both drama and comedy Emmys for playing the same character. (OITNB was previously submitted as a comedy instead of a drama.)
At the Netflix afterparty, Aduba told reporters of her plans for the Emmy statuette, “It’s going on a book shelf!”
