Viola Davis Is A Grammy Away From Being An EGOT Winner
Viola Davis made history last night as the first black actor to win an Emmy, Oscar and Tony for acting. This makes her a Grammy Award away from winning the four major entertainment awards, commonly referred to as the EGOT.
If Davis became an EGOT winner, she’d be the 13th person in history and the second black woman to do so (the first is Whoopi Goldberg). Naturally, Twitter is pining for the How To Get Away With Murder star to become part of the exclusive group of entertainers.
Many users have come up with creative ways for Davis to win a Grammy Award, from writing a book and releasing an audiobook recording of it, to being featured on Chance The Rapper’s next song.
It could be difficult to win that last award, but anything is possible for Viola Davis. When asked by reporters about her first Oscar win last night (Feb. 26), Davis was clearly over the moon.
“I just wanted to be good at something,” she told them.
someone get Viola a children’s audiobook to narrate immediately #EGOT
