Viola Davis might just be the GOAT.
Last night was huge for Viola Davis. The Fences actress took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, which is already massive for a person of color, but on closer analysis of the stats, something extraordinary emerges.
Davis is the first black woman to win an Oscar, Emmy, and Tony award for acting. There you have it; she made history. Apparently, Whoopi Goldberg has actually won an Oscar, an Emmy, a Tony, and a Grammy, but the Tony was for producing, not acting, disqualifying her from this honor.
Davis won her Emmy for her work in How To Get Away With Murder, and actually has two Tony awards for acting. One Tony for King Hedley II in 2001, and the other for the Broadway rendition of Fences in 2010.
What do y'all think? Is Davis going to go down as the best in the business? Let us know in the comments.
