The Screen Actor Guild Awards are a pretty big deal, to say the least, recognizing outstanding performances in film and primetime television. So, all of the biggest stars are attending the event and walking the red carpet in the finest. One of those stars at the 2016 SAG Awards was of course Uzo Aduba, who you might know from the Netflix series Orange is the New Black, where she place Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren.
Uzo always puts on an incredible performance on the series, so it was no surprise that the actress walked away with two trophies this past Saturday night (January 30th) - one as part of the cast of OITNB and one for her individual role as Crazy Eyes in the series. But, it wasn't her accolades or her pretty green gown that got our attention at the SAG Awards this year. Rather, it's that she chose to attend the event with one of her closest friends... and her high school prom date!
The photo above is what the actress shared on Instagram: two photos side-by-side of her and her date - one from the two at this year's SAG Awards event, and the other a throwback picture of the two together on prom night! She wrote: "He asked me to the prom, I said yes. I asked him to SAGs, he said yes. #sagawards @mcrow55." So cute!
She's BFFs with @mcrow55, having posted other pictures with him on Instagram, and even mentioning "Friends: from kindergarten to today. Priceless." That's pretty amazing to stay such close friends with someone for so long, especially with becoming so famous and busy through being a part of OITNB.

To go from Prom to the SAGs together is quite the feat and shows just how strong their friendship is, so we can't wait see what other fun events they attend together. Maybe one day we'll even get the story of the promposal and SAGposal.
