Viola Davis has made history once again, proving that she is one of the greatest entertainers of our generation.

Davis took home a Grammy Award for her performance of her audiobook memoir, Finding Me, at the Grammy Awards ceremony, which was held on Sunday night.

An entertainer is referred to as an EGOT when they win an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Award.

In 2015, Davis became the first Black woman to win an Emmy for best actress in a drama for her role in “How to Get Away with Murder,” and in 2017, she became the first Black woman to score three Academy Award nominations, taking home the Oscar for “Fences,” for which she also won a Tony Award. The 57-year-old has another Tony for her profound acting in “King Hedley III.”

Only 18 people have ever won the coveted award and only three are Black, including Whoopi Goldberg, John Legend, and Jennifer Hudson.

“Oh my God, I wrote this book to honor the 6-year-old Viola, to honor her, to honor her life, her joy, her trauma, her everything,” said Davis during her acceptance speech.

Congratulations to her. She truly deserves the best!
