Orange Is the New Black emerged successful at the Creative Arts Emmys 2014 last night.

The hit Netflix series won in each of the categories it was nominated in, with Uzo Aduba’s portrayal of Suzanne ‘Crazy Eyes’ Warren taking home Outstanding Guest Actress In A Comedy Series. Also up for the prize in this category were her co-stars Natasha Lyonne and Laverne Cox, along with Saturday Night Live’s Tina Fey and Melissa McCarthy and Shameless’ Joan Cusack.

Uzo was presented the prize by none other than Morgan Freeman, and she gave a heart-felt speech on stage.

"I don’t know how to say how incredibly impressed I am to be a part of this show day in, day out," she gushed.

"I feel so full, that’s why the tears come out. I’m stuffed. My cup runneth over right now. Mission accomplished, thank you,” she later added backstage.

Orange Is the New Black also picked up Outstanding Casting For A Comedy Series, beating the likes of Modern Family and Nurse Jackie, and the Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing For A Comedy Series award.

Jimmy Fallon walked away with Outstanding Guest Actor In A Comedy Series for Saturday Night Live, while Scandal’s Joe Morton picked up the same award in the Drama Series grouping for playing Rowan Pope.

Allison Janney was honoured with Outstanding Guest Actress In A Drama Series for her role as Margaret Scully in Masters of Sex.

Other big winners included Game Of Thrones, which won Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup For A Series, Miniseries, Movie Or A Special, Outstanding Special And Visual Effects and Outstanding Costumes For A Series.
