Viola Davis #1 - Emmy's, BAFTA's, Golden Globes and hopefully an Oscar next!

v i o l a d a v i s
#1



Actress Viola Davis was born on her grandmother's farm, at the then-Singleton Plantation in St. Matthews, South Carolina. When she was two months old her family moved to Central Falls, Rhode Island, where her father, Dan Davis, worked as a horse groomer and trainer. Her mother, Mary Alice (Logan), a maid and factory worker, was also a civil rights activist. Davis was educated at Central Falls High School, where she developed a love of acting. She studied theater at Rhode Island College, and also attended the prestigious Juilliard School in New York City.

Davis made her screen debut with a small role as a nurse in 1996's The Substance of Fire (1996). Guest spots followed in various TV shows and films, and in 2000 she won the role of Nurse Lynnette Peeler in City of Angels (2000). In 2001, Davis appeared on Broadway in the play, 'King Hedley II', for which she was awarded a Tony for Best Featured Actress in a Play.

Davis has worked with Steven Soderbergh on three projects - Traffic (2000), Solaris (2002) and Syriana (2005). Other projects include Far from Heaven (2002), Antwone Fisher (2002) and Disturbia (2007). In 2008, she played Mrs. Miller in Doubt (2008), for which she was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar. In 2011, she won critical acclaim for her starring role as Aibileen Clark in the box-office hit The Help (2011).

I was shocked she didn't have a thread yet!
And after having seen Prisoners and The Help recently I thought she deserved one!

I'm planning on catching HTGAWM S2 on Netflix soon!

oh you've seen that one already? It's on my list!

She's gotten good recognition for it with a BAFTA and Globe so I am curious about the chances of her getting an Oscar now!

Well all nominated performances are great, but she's being like receiving almost all the major awards.

oh she definitely did! I love her role in that one!

The way she treated that little girl with her 'you're special' song! So sweet
My heart broke when she was fired from that family!

She seems to share a lot of events with Octavia Spencer! Are they close friends in real life?
