“Oh my God,” she said today as she accepted her Grammy. “I wrote this book to honour the six-year-old Viola, to honor her, to honor her life, her joy, her trauma, her everything.”
Davis was the only female nominee in her category this year alongside big names Lin-Manuel Miranda, Questlove, Mel Brooks and Jamie Foxx. Other EGOT winners include Jennifer Hudson, Rita Moreno, Audrey Hepburn and Whoopi Goldberg.
