The Webby Awards is proud to honor Taylor Schilling as Actress of the Year in 2014 for her work on the hit Netflix show Orange Is the New Black. In a series full of strong performances and unique characters, Schilling’s riveting portrayal of craft enthusiast-cum-convict Piper Chapman is the linchpin that holds it all together. The effortless blending of comedy and drama makes Orange a true double threat: a show where the lead character can make you laugh or cry at any given moment. It’s that emotional quality that has compelled viewers to discuss the show on social media; has created a press frenzy for the upcoming season 2; and – most importantly – has made it Netflix’s most-watched show ever. For giving us all the most binge-worthy performance of the year, Taylor Schilling is clearly deserving of the Webby Award for Actress of the Year.
