VIDEO: Viola Davis Wins First Golden Globe After Five Nominations Over the Years!
Viola Davis just won the Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture for her work in Fences at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday (January 8) in Beverly Hills, Calif.
“This is my fifth nomination…I took all the pictures. I went to the luncheon,” Viola joked about being nominated four previous times (in 2009 for Doubt, in 2012 for The Help, and in 2015 and 2016 for How to Get Away with Murder).
“This story screamed art and heart. And it deserved to be told,” Viola said during her speech.
