‘Orange Is The New Black’ Star Uzo Aduba Has A Special ‘Scandal’ Wish


Sometimes when I’m feeling a bit down, I do the most arrogant thing you could probably do and I go to my own Instagram page and scroll down, and remind myself that my life is awesome, my kids are cute, and I hung out with Crazy Eyes that one time and it was amazing. LOL, it feels so wrong, but it works every time. I friggen love Uzo Aduba, and I hope I get the chance to interview her again sometime. The actress just won her first Emmy at Saturday’s Creative Arts Emmys and—although she won for her role on Orange Is The New Black—she opened up about her vision for upcoming seasons of Scandal.

E! chatted it up with the actress after her big win:

1. What was your first job?
My first job was babysitting for one of my neighbors. It’s funny because the kid I would baby-sit for is all grown up now and lives and works in New York and I’m having dinner with him this week.

2. Which other TV show would you love to guest star on?
SCANDAL!!!! I just want to hear Olivia Pope tell me “it’s handled” once.

3. List three things you’ll have with you on Emmy night.
My family, my cast, my joy.

4. Who do you most want to share a drink with?
That’s a long list but if Oprah’s there all bets are off.

5. Who do you most want to take a selfie with?
Please refer to Question 4.

I support this Aduba/Scandal movement so much it hurts. I’m also really interested in seeing her play a different role—I just know she’d be hella fierce.

Shonda Rhimes, please come handle this!
