Viola Davis Shares A Sweet Mother-Daughter Moment Post Emmy Awards Win


After delivering a monumental acceptance speech at the Emmy’s on Sunday night (Sept. 20) for her historic win of becoming the first African-American to receive the Best Actress in a Drama award, Viola Davis’ week just got that much more sweeter thanks to the adorable nature of her baby girl.

Following one of the most inspiring nights for all black actors and actresses, Davis’ 3-year-old daughter, Genesis, got ahold of her Instagram account to share how proud she was of her mother’s accomplishments. In the quick but oh so cute clip, Genesis is seen blowing a kiss to her mom after telling her, “I love you, Mommy, and I hope you win another Emmy. You’re my favorite girl. I love you.”

After sharing that moment with us all, it’s safe to say that Viola is having the best week ever. The famed actress’ ABC hit show How To Get Away With Murder returns Thursday (Sept. 24) at 10 p.m.
