Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren is a fictional character played by Uzo Aduba on the Netflix series Orange Is the New Black. The character is the only role that has earned Emmy Award recognition both in the comedy and drama genres from the same show and only the second character to earn Emmy recognition in both genres.
Warren is portrayed as a female inmate, at times quite articulate, but lacking in social skills, and prone to spiral into emotional outbursts when agitated. Aduba won Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series at the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards as well as Best Guest Performer in a Comedy Series at the 4th Critics' Choice Television Awards for her season 1 performance. She earned Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series at the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards as well as Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series at the 21st Screen Actors Guild Awards for her season 2 performance. Her season 3 performance again won Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series at the 22nd Screen Actors Guild Awards.
She is obsessed with Piper Chapman (played by Taylor Schilling). In season 1, she is credited for 11 of the 13 episodes (not the first or seventh), although she appears in the first episode via footage filmed from another episode. She is a recurring character in season 1 and a regular character beginning with season 2.
In season 2, episode 3 ("Hugs Can Be Deceiving"), Eden Wiggins and Taliyah Whitaker portray the 10-year-old and 5-year-old versions of Warren. Throughout the first two seasons, it is shown that Warren aspires "to be included" and "to make friends and be valued". The character is known for her bantu knots, an awkward grin, and her crazy eyes.
