She starred alongside Octavia Spencer in the movie The Help, she counts Meryl Streep among her friends, and she is a flawless dark skinned woman redefining the world’s definition of beauty.

Viola Davis continued to win the heart of everyone watching throughout the night.

In her first speech when she won Best Supporting Actress in the film Fences, Davis touched on the importance of diversity in story-telling and the referenced her father as an example for people’s stories who should be told (because of their artistic credit and not simply potential to make money).

Happy tears continued to flow, as Davis used her eloquent honesty to present Meryl Streep with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
