HOW TO GET AWAY WITH BEING THE 1ST BLACK ACTOR TO WIN AN OSCAR, EMMY & TONY. 🥂💯
How to get away with murder star Viola Davis made history📜 at the Oscars by becoming the 1st ever black woman to hold gold in all three major award show power houses. 🏆🏆🏆
Yep, Viola Davis is the first black woman to win an Oscar, an Emmy, and a Tony for acting, and is only the 23rd person overall to pick up the famed Triple Crown.👑
Davis who already has the title of most nominated Actress in the history, of course, picked up the Emmy for her role of Annalise Keating in How To Get Away With Murder back in 2015. The actor also is the proud recipient of two ✌🏾 Tony awards, which she won in 2001 for her work in King Hedley II and again in 2010 for the Broadway production of Fences.
While not counted as being part of the Triple Crown, Davis also picked up the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress earlier this year, too.
