The 2014 Creative Arts Emmy Awards were presented on Saturday at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. Uzo Aduba was the star winner of the evening, bagging an Emmy for her breakout role as a prisoner known as "Crazy Eyes" in Netflix's "Orange is the New Black." The series received two other awards, for casting and picture editing. The Creative Arts Emmys honor technical and other achievements.

Aduba won as best guest actress in a comedy series. The actress delivered an emotional speech that moved not only herself but also some cast members in the audience to tears.

"Oh my gosh...I need to say thank you to the cast...Natasha and Roberta I'm looking at you right now... I need to finally thank my friends and my family who are sitting over there, who have been the greatest support of my entire life. My sister... my mother who came from Nigeria to make a better life for her family." said Uzo Aduba, Best Actress, Creative Arts Emmy.

Jimmy Fallon was honored as best guest comedy actor for NBC's "Saturday Night Live." But he wasn't there to pick up his award. 

On the drama side, guest-acting honors went to Joe Morton for ABC's "Scandal" and Allison Janney for Showtime's "Masters of Sex."

"Incredible acting partners especially...The crew guy who got me a shot of bourbon before my first sex scene was extraordinarily important to me." said Allison Janney, Outstanding Guest Actress, Creative Arts Emmy.
