Viola Davis References Her 'Classic Beauty' in People's Choice Awards Speech
The 49-year-old actress won the award for Favorite Actress In A New TV Series for her work on How to Get Away with Murder.

“Thank you Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers, and Peter Nowalk for thinking of a leading lady who looks like my classic beauty,” she said.
