How to Get Away With Murder‘s Viola Davis won big at the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards this week. She’s the first black woman to receive the award for leading actress in a drama.
Adding this to the list of 2015’s groundbreaking events!
Apparently she got some backlash for her speech, but of course people would find something negative to say about all of this.
In honor of Viola Davis’ Emmy win, I’ve dedicated this week’s Fan Art Fridays to a GIF of the actress holding her well-deserved trophy. I found the GIF on Tumblr, and below the cartoon version of Viola it reads,
“The only thing that separates women of color from anyone else is opportunity.”
