Viola Davis became the first African American Woman to the Grammy’s, Emmy’s and Oscars by acting.

Viola Davis Accomplished something not many people are able to say that they have done . Ms Davis accomplishments has gained her entry into the “3 crown club”. This club is for the few actors on the big screen who have won a Oscars, Emmy and a Grammy award. There are only 23 people who have completed this accomplishment. Ms. Davis gives a speech of acceptance saying that ” There is one place that all the people with potential are gathered, the graveyard “after that opening remark of her speech everything else shows the thankfulness she has for being able to win such an award and accomplish this achievement

For a Woman to win all 3 awards she has to be a “standout” because woman, especially women of color have to work a little harder to become seen as competition. Ms. Davis did ust that and her hard work and achievements earned her a spot amongst a group of people not even 10 percent of actors in the business get to be apart of.
