Elle Magazine is celebrating women in television with their February 2016 issue, and two of our favorites are a part of the 5 woman cover. Golden Globe Best Actress nominees, and HTGAWM star, Viola Davis and Empire’s, Taraji P. Henson… Check out the features
As we head into Awards season, the actress, who received a Best Actress Nomination for the Golden Globes looks fierce in this brown ensemble. I would love for Viola to win, not only for her work, but she gives awesome speeches!
Here are some of Viola’s quotes that have stuck with me:
“Thanks to all the people who love me, exactly how God made me.” – SAG Awards 2015
“They say to serve is to love. I think to serve is to heal, too.” —Viola Davis at Variety‘s 2014 Power of Women luncheon
“I would tell my younger self just be yourself—that who you are is good enough.” —Viola Davis to People in 2014
“Do not live someone else’s life and someone else’s idea of what womanhood is. Womanhood is you. Womanhood is everything that’s inside of you.” —Viola Davis to BuzzFeed in 2015
The Hollywood Foreign Press announced that Empire stars, Taraji P. Henson and co-star Terrence Howard will be presenters at this years Golden Globe Awards. Henson will pull double duty: she’s also nominated for best actress in a TV drama for Empire. The actress has said in the past, that where she is now in this season of her life is all due to God.
Congrats again to actresses, Viola Davis and Taraji P. Henson
