The actresses nominated in this category at the 22nd Screen Actors Awards on Jan. 30 were flawless and we were so happy to see Viola Davis win!
Viola Davis won for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series for her role in How To Get Away With Murder! This is so awesome and we absolutely loved her speech.
“My job is to create human being to the best of my ability, flawed, messy, maybe not always likeable,” Viola said when she took the stage. “I get so much joy out of being an actor … It has been the joy, pleasure of my life, thank you so much.”
There was some very steep competition in the “Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series” category: Claire Danes, Homeland, Julianna Marguiles, The Good Wife, Maggie Smith, Downton Abbey, Robin Wright, House of Cards.
This is Viola’s second time to win this award in this category. She won it in 2014 for How To Get Away With Murder for her role as Annalise Keating. She previously won for her role in The Help in 2011. Before that, she was nominated in 2008 for her role in the movie Doubt.
