Viola Davis is one Grammy Award away from securing EGOT status after memoir ‘Finding Me’ got nominated.    

Actress and author, Viola Davis, can make history and achieve the coveted EGOT status after being nominated for a Grammy Award for her nomination in the “Best Audio Book, Narration, and Storytelling Recording” category for her memoir, Finding Me.

The How To Get Away With Murder alum has previously won an Emmy award for How to Get Away With Murder, an Oscar award for her role in the movie adaptation of the August Wilson-penned play Fences and two Tonys for Fences and King Hedley II.

EGOT Winners

This will make Davis the 18th EGOT winner if she can snag the victory on February 5th at the 65th Annual Grammy Award ceremony. She will join other EGOT winners in John Legend, Jennifer Hudson, and Whoopi Goldberg.

The Grammys gave a few nods to some of our other Black Hollywood, including Lizzo who scored big with being nominated for “Record of the Year” and “Album of the Year,” for Special and “About Damn Time”. Beyoncé made history this year as she became the most nominated artist in Grammy history, securing 10 nominations in several categories including: “Album of the Year,” “Record of the Year,” “Best Dance Recording”.
