Viola Davis just joined an exclusive club in the world of entertainment, and it’s a big deal. She is now the 18th EGOT winner in history, and she’s the third Black woman to achieve this honor. We’ll tell you all about it.

Viola Davis won a Grammy for her narration on her memoir “Finding Me”, and her reaction was priceless. She went up on stage and said “I just EGOT”, and the audience was ecstatic. She joins 17 other recipients of the EGOT, including Whoopi Goldberg, Jennifer Hudson, John Legend, Mel Brooks, Audrey Hepburn, Richard Rodgers, Helen Hayes, Rita Moreno, John Gielgud, Jonathan Tunick, Marvin Hamlisch, Scott Rudin, Mike Nichols, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Robert Lopez, Tim Rice and Alan Menken.

Viola Davis has won an Oscar for her work in “Fences”, two Tonys for “Fences” (the theatrical play) and “King Hedley II”, and an Emmy for “How To Get Away with Murder”. This makes her the 18th EGOT winner, and the third Black woman to achieve this honor.

This is an incredible accomplishment, and we can’t help but be proud of Viola Davis. Congratulations to her on this amazing achievement!
