Score some major awards for Netflix, who nabbed three at Sunday night's Screen Actors Guild awards.

The first award of the night went to Orange Is The New Black's Uzo Aduba, who took home the Actor for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series. She beat out category heavyweights Julie Bowen (Modern Family), Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep), and Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation).

OITNB's big night wasn't over, however. Soon after, the entire cast won the award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series. Once again, the show had to beat out some heavy competition – The Big Bang Theory, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Modern Family, and Veep.

Congratulations to Uzo Aduba and the cast of Orange Is The New Black on their two #SAGAwards wins tonight! #OITNB

For the past two years, lead actress Taylor Schilling has been nominated for a Golden Globe, but has failed to win. Uzo Aduba has already taken home a big award for her role as Crazy Eyes on the Netflix original series – Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series at the Golden Globes last year.

Netflix's other high-profile original House of Cards was also nominated multiple times at this year's SAG awards. The show received a nod for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series, but lost out to the cast of Downton Abbey.

However, Kevin Spacey did win in his category – Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series. He beat Steve Buscemi, Peter Dinklage, Woody Harrelson, and Matthew McConaughey.
