Last night Viola Davis took home an actor for best actress at the awards show.
Not only did she look stunning rocking her natural coif but her acceptance speech was utterly amazing!
“When I tell my daughter stories at night, inevitably a few things happen. Number one, I use my imagination. I always start with life and then I build from there. And then the other thing that happens is she always says, ‘Mommy can you put me in the story?’ And you know it starts from the top up. So I’d like to thank Paul Lee, Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers, Bill D’Elia, and Peter Nowalk for thinking that a sexualized, messy, mysterious woman could be a 49 year-old, dark-skinned, African-American woman that looks like me.”
