There is nothing warm and fuzzy about doing hard time, unless you add the right music.

Genius YouTube user Robert Jones created a new intro for Netflix hit Orange Is the New Black by replacing Regina Spektor's tune with the Golden Girls theme. The new ditty transforms the cavity searches and cold showers of Litchfield into '80s comedy fun.

Lauren Morelli, a writer for Orange Is the New Black, and her husband of two years, Steve Basilone, have split – and she's finding love with one of the show's female stars, Samira Wiley.

Morelli and Basilone filed for divorce jointly and split amicably, according to documents obtained by TMZ.

In May, the writer penned an essay on Identities.Mic about how she realized she was gay while writing for OITNB.

"I realized I was gay in fall 2012, one of my first days on the set," wrote Morelli.

On Aug. 17, Uzo Aduba earned Orange Is the New Black its first Emmy win, tearfully accepting the award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series at the Creative Arts Emmys.

Now OITNB has a chance to take home gold again at Monday's Primetime Emmy Awards. Both Taylor Schilling and the Netflix series itself are up for coveted statuettes, and we think they have a good shot at winning.

Why Kate Mulgrew Deserves the Emmy for Orange Is the New Black

Originally posted 08/24/2014 06:25PM



It's not easy to make a not-so-good person likeable. But as Galina "Red" Reznikov on Orange Is the New Black, Kate Mulgrew does it oh so well.

The Irish-American actress, who has a string of successful TV roles under her belt, plays the fierce Russian den mother to many of her prison's younger girls, a woman with a tough exterior who's actually kind of crumbling inside. The role earned her an Emmy nomination for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series.

Why Orange Is the New Black Is the Comedy to Beat at the Emmy Awards

Originally posted 08/24/2014 06:15PM



Raise your hand if you binge-watched Orange Is the New Black season 2. Yep, we're guilty too.

It was impossible to avoid the buzz surrounding the Netflix hit's season 2 debut this summer, and within days most people had lapped up all 13 hour-long episodes – for good reason. It's nominated for outstanding comedy series, and five of its actresses were nominated for Emmys (one, Uzo Aduba, already won for outstanding guest actress) because the show is just that darn good. Its women's prison setting is the perfect place for friendships to form and fizzle, backstabbing (sometimes literal) to occur and characters to have full-on breakdowns. It's hilarious and moving at the same time, towing the line between comedy and drama with moments that make viewers laugh out loud and others that have made me recoil in horror.

Why Taylor Schilling Deserves the Emmy for Orange Is the New Black, in One Scene

Originally posted 08/24/2014 05:35PM



WARNING: Contains explicit language

Though her character doesn't necessarily have as much, well, character as Crazy Eyes, Taystee or Red, without Taylor Schilling's Piper Chapman, there wouldn't be an Orange Is the New Black. That's why she's up for outstanding lead actress in a comedy.

Often the steady shoulder to cry on for the emotionally damaged inmates around her, Chapman is at her best and most interesting when she has a moment of weakness (see: the incredibly disturbing final scene of season 1). And there were plenty of those in season 2, whether she was (spoilers) breaking down on an airplane, going crazy in a cell after her ex-girlfriend betrayed her (above) or scheming to get back at her ex-fiancé and ex-best friend.

Happy guessing! (The answers are at the bottom, if you want to cheat.)
