Watch: Uzo Aduba Gets Very Emotional Backstage After Winning An Emmy For 'Orange Is The New Black'

Jimmy Fallon, Allison Janney and Joe Morton also won guest acting Emmys this weekend.

The Emmys didn't end up listening to our little plea, so the guest acting awards were handed out at a ceremony last night. Joe Morton and Allison Janney won in the drama categories for "Scandal" and "Masters of Sex," respectively, while Jimmy Fallon won best guest actor in a comedy for his hosting gig on "Saturday Night Live."

But the winner we were most curious about came in the comedy actress category: Joan Cusack, Tina Fey and Melissa McCarthy vs. three wonderful cast members of "Orange Is The New Black" -- Laverne Cox, Uzo Aduba and Natasha Lyonne.  A seriously mighty sextet. And the winner was? Aduba. Which frankly we think is pretty deserved, even if it would have been amazing to see Cox become the first trans actor to win an Emmy and we're pretty sure her speech would have been instantly legendary. And though Aduba's speech isn't available online yet for us to judge in that regard, there is some pretty heartwarming footage up from when she went backstage after winning.

"I feel so full, that's why the tears come out," Aduba said. "I'm stuffed really. I'm beyond full. My cup runneth over right now. I feel absolutely all of those things: I feel full of joy, like a fountain. Mission accomplished." 

Watch Aduba's emotional backstage appearance below, and turn to the next page for a complete list of winners from Saturday night -- including another big one for "Orange Is The New Black."
