Viola Davis is the epitome of Black Girl Magic!

The phenomenal actress’ Oscar nomination for her incredible performance in Fences has made her the first and only black actress in history to earn three Oscar nominations.

In 2009, Viola received a Best Supporting Actress nomination for Doubt, where she only had ONE scene in the entire film and she received a Best Actress nod in 2012 for The Help.

Viola Davis isn’t new to making history! In 2015, she was the first black actress to win an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama for her role in “How to Get Away With Murder.”

Oh, how I love Viola…let me count the ways!!!

She’s going home with the Oscar – mark my words!
