Viola Davis already has an idea of how she’s going to celebrate a possible Grammy win in February. In that case, the actress has reached the rare so-called EGOT status and that is enough reason to take herself out to dinner, she tells Entertainment Tonight.
Davis has been nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Audio Book category, becoming the eighteenth person ever to win an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony (EGOT for short).
“That would be surreal,” says 57-year-old Davis. “When I thought about it, I thought, if I achieve that, I’ll take myself out to dinner. I don’t normally celebrate my wins, but I would definitely celebrate this win.”
Davis was nominated for a Grammy for her own memoir Finding Me. She won an Oscar in 2016 in the Best Supporting Actress category for the film Fences. She already had a Tony in the closet for her performance in the play King Hedley II in 2001. A year before her Oscar win, she also picked up an Emmy for best actress in the series How To Get Away With Murder.
