The Emmy’s were record breaking and historical this 2015. My highlight from me watching which was Mrs. Viola Davis. Viola Davis had been on my favorite actress list since I saw here in The Help. Viola Davis became the first American-African to win an Emmy for best actress in a drama, in her acceptance speech she gave Viola Davis was inspiring, insightful and historical. Her speech was a bold statement that needed to be heard by many people.
Viola Davis Emmy Acceptance Speech
” In my mind, I see a line. And over that line, I see green fields and lovely flowers and beautiful white women with their arms stretched out to me, over that line. But I can’t seem to get there no how. I can’t seem to get over that line”.
That was Harriet Tubman in the 1800s. And let me tell you something: The only thing that separates women of color from anyone else is opportunity.
You cannot win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there. So here’s to all the writers, the awesome people that are Ben Sherwood, Paul Lee, Peter Nowalk, Shonda Rhimes, people who have redefined what it means to be beautiful, to be sexy, to be a leading woman, to be black.
And to the Taraji P. Hensons, the Kerry Washingtons, the Halle Berrys, the Nicole Beharies, the Meagan Goods, to Gabrielle Union: Thank you for taking us over that line. Thank you to the Television Academy. Thank you.
