Viola Davis wins a Grammy for her book Finding Me, making her the third black woman to accomplish the EGOT.
Viola Davis earned her first prize and became an EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony) winner for Best Audiobook, Narration, and Storytelling. She is also just the third Black woman to hold the prestigious position. Tems, a Nigerian musician, got her first award for her appearance on Future’s Wait for U, which won Best Melodic Rap Performance.
In 2017, Viola won an Oscar for best supporting actress for her portrayal in Fences. She had already received a Tony Award for lead actress for the same role in the original Broadway production. In 2001, she received a Tony Award for best featured actress for her role in the play King Hedley II. Viola won an Emmy in 2015 for her role in the hit show How to Get Away With Murder.
Davis, 57, won the award for narrating the audio version of her best-selling 2022 memoir “Finding Me.”
Viola exclaimed on stage as she accepted the award, “Oh, my God! I created this book to honour Viola, the six-year-old girl, her life, her joy, her suffering, everything. And it’s been quite a voyage. “I just got it!”
