LOS ANGELES, Jan. 25 (UPI) -- The stars of Netflix's Orange is the New Black won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Ensemble in a TV Comedy Series in Los Angeles Sunday night.

"Thank you so much! Thank you so much to the Screen Actors Guild. Thank you so much, we want to say a big, massive, massive thank you to [show creator] Jenji Kohan, without whom this is not at all possible. We want to say a massive thank you also to Netflix and Lionsgate, to the family there. We want to thank everyone who has tuned into our show, who has watched our show and supported it in such a brilliant way. We are incredibly grateful for this tremendous honor. Thank you very, very much," cast member Uzo Aduba said on behalf of her co-stars.

Earlier in the evening, Aduba scored the SAG Award for Best Actress in a TV Comedy.

William H. Macy won the Best Actor in a TV Comedy honor for his work in Shameless.

"I've written so many great acceptance speeches that I never got to give. But not tonight!" Macy quipped. "To my fellow nominees... Nah, forget it, you lost. [Executive producer] John Wells, you are so good at so many things, it's becoming annoying. Thank you, Showtime, you are bodacious. Keep on keeping on. To this cast, I don't know why you're all not nominated; maybe next year."
