I am so proud of Savvy Sistah Viola Davis and I love this classic Hollywood photo shoot of her with George Clooney for Entertainment Weekly. They are both nominated for Academy Awards in the Best Actor & Best Actress category and I think they should both make room for their Oscars.
In the article Viola was very vocal about the lack of roles for black women:
“Only one black actress in history has been back [at the Oscars] more than once, and that’s Whoopi Goldberg. But that’s only because there aren’t a lot of roles out there that are going to bring you back. Say if you have two great roles for an African-American actress in a year — one actress can cover it. So if there’s five really good black actresses out there, and that one actress gets it all, then the other four can sit for the next three years.”
Keep SOARing Ms. Davis!
