Viola Davis looked stunning at the 2015 People’s Choice Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Wednesday in Los Angeles.
The gorgeous actress took home the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Actress In A New TV Series for her work on How to Get Away with Murder.
In her acceptance speech, Viola snapped back at the New York Times article that stated she was “older, darker-skinned and less classically beautiful” than lighter-skinned actresses.
“Thank you Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers, and Peter Nowalk for thinking of a leading lady who looks like my classic beauty.”
