Aduba continued to thank everyone important in her life including her agents, lawyers and her family.

"I love you mostly because you let me be me," added Aduba.

Aduba was up against Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey), Lena Headey (Game of Thrones), Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Christine Baranski (The Good Wife) and Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) for the award. The honor marks Aduba's second Emmy win.
