Viola Davis took home the 2017 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in Fences, bringing her one step closer to that coveted EGOT — an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony. She has three out of the four awards, so can we get this woman to sing or get her an audiobook to read so she can Viola Davis can win a Grammy Award, please?
Davis won her Emmy for her role as Annalise Keating in How To Get Away With Murder and her Tony Award for playing Rose Maxson in the Broadway production of Fences. Now that she's won her Oscar for playing Rose in the movies, she's closer to the ultimate in acting quadfectas. Fun fact: Davis is the first black person to win all three acting awards. Whoopi Goldberg has an EGOT already, but she won her Emmy for hosting, not acting, so it's a little different. Davis' consistently amazing work demonstrates that she can pretty much pull anything off. I mean, have you seen her and the crazy plot lines on How To Get Away With Murder? Making those believable is a real skill. We just need to get her to record something so she can win a Grammy.
How can we make this happen? She has a powerful, captivating speaking voice, so I'm thinking that she records a powerful, captivating version of whatever the next New York Times best seller is. Do we have the next Gone Girl coming out soon? Whatever that is, what we need that here. I want to watch Davis take home the best awards she possibly can, and I want to watch it happen as soon as possible. I want to listen to her read me a story, and it needs to be now.
