Viola Davis won big at the 41st annual People’s Choice Awards last night in Los Angeles. The regal thespian won the award for Favorite New Actress in a TV series and her awards speech was just as memorable her role as Annalise Keating on How to Get Away with Murder.
“You know, we actors, we do it for you; we do it for the fans, we do it for the people. We do it to move you; we do it to provoke you so thank you so much for this. Thank you Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers and Peter Nowalk for thinking of a leading lady who looks like my classic beauty.”
Davis was of course responding to the New York Times piece by Alessandra Stanley where Stanley labeled Davis as being “less classically beautiful” than Kerry Washington. Guess the voters of the People’s Choice Awards believed otherwise.
We love how she let the chopper spray in the classiest way possible. “How to Get Away with Murder” returns January 29th, 2015 at 10/9 CST.
