Here’s Viola Davis’ Powerful Acceptance Speech For Best Actress In A Drama Series

Last night was a game changing moment for the Emmys.

While there were a couple snubs (how did Game Of Thrones beat Mad Men?) the award ceremony got a lot right. One of the high moments of the awards was when Viola Davis made history Sunday night as the first black woman to win an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.

Understanding the weight of the moment, Viola delivered a captivating speech to fans across the globe.

The Tony-Award-winning actress began her emotional acceptance speech with a stirring quote from Harriet Tubman.
“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.”

Davis went on to point out “You cannot win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there.”

Davis brings up a hot topic that has been stirring in Hollywood for quite sometime now.
Has Hollywood writers, producers and directors been fair in regards to casting? Over the past couple of years we have seen Kelly Washington in Scandal, now we have Viola Davis. Great content delivered from both ladies.

Is the playing field even?
