For Laverne Cox, Monday wasn't just a special night. It was a historic one.

Last year, Laverne Cox watched the Emmys at home, alone and with a bowl of ice cream.

This year's Emmy nominations saw a historic first: Orange Is the New Black star Laverne Cox was nominated for the outstanding guest actress in a comedy series award, making her the first openly transgender person nominated in an acting category. (Conductor Angela Morley won several Emmys for music direction.)
The award ultimately went to Cox's Orange costar, Uzo "Crazy Eyes" Aduba – the win was announced during the Creative Arts portion of the awards, which took place on Aug. 16 – but Cox's nomination is a first nonetheless. Now in their 66th year, the Emmy Awards have seen many famous firsts. Have a look back at other celebrated performers who scored one of these firsts in the Primetime Emmy acting categories.

To avoid a conflict with Sunday Night Football, NBC moved the 2014 Emmy Awards telecast up a month, to August 25. But in swerving clear of the football juggernaut, the Emmys steered right into the lane of the landmark cultural occasion of late August: the MTV VMAs, scheduled for one day prior.
It got us thinking: What if we took things to their logical conclusion and handed MTV control of the Emmys, as well?
Using categories from both the VMAs and their summertime counterpart, the MTV Movie Awards, we've imagined what would happen if the cable network was in charge of handing out trophies for everything that's on TV, not just music videos.
Massive spoilers below!

Forget "Crazy Eyes."
Uzo Aduba's eyes only glistened with tears of joy and gratitude Saturday night when she took home her first-ever Emmy for her portrayal of quirky inmate Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren on Orange Is the New Black.
"I feel so full, that's why the tears come out," Aduba, 33, told reporters in the press room following her win for outstanding guest actress in a comedy at the 2014 Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live. "I'm stuffed really. I'm beyond full. My cup runneth over right now. I feel absolutely all of those things: I feel full of joy, like a fountain. Mission accomplished."
Aduba was nominated alongside costars Natasha Lyonne and Laverne Cox and has said it's an honor to just be recognized for her work on the hit Netflix show, which was also her big acting break.
