It was a historic win for Viola Davis┬áat the Emmy’s last night! The “How to Get Away With Murder” star won an Emmy last night for her performance on the show, making her the first black woman to win an award for outstanding actress in a drama series. She also gave an awe-inspiring speech, saying “The only thing that separates women of color from anyone else is opportunity. You cannot win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there. So here’s to all the writers who have redefined what it means to be beautiful, to be sexy, to be leading women, and to be black.”
Viola Davis wasn’t the only winner last night. Regina King and Uzo Aduba also took home Emmy’s last night. Uzo Aduba won for best supporting actress in “Orange is the New Black”. Regina King won her first Emmy for her performance in the show “American Crime”. Congratulations to these lovely ladies! Get it divas!
