“OITNB” Cast Uses Award Acceptance Speech As A Chance To Speak About Unity And Diversity

This diverse group of empowering women take on yet another award, and they totally deserve it.?

For the third year in a row, “Orange Is The New Black” won the Screen Actors Guild award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series — and they couldn’t be happier about it. With the help of Elizabeth Rodriguez and Jackie Cruz, Taylor Schilling took her award acceptance speech as an opportunity to shed light on the significance of unity and acceptance:

We stand up here representing a diverse group of people, representing generations of families who sought a better life here, from places like Nigeria, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Colombia, Ireland… And we know that it’s going to be up to us, and all of you probably too, to keep telling stories that show: what unites us is stronger than the forces that seek to divide us.

Cheers to #womenpower and cheers to the #orangefamily


We’ll be waiting for the fourth award in a row next year. ???
