History was made last night as Viola Davis became the first Black actress to win an Emmy Award as a lead actress. Also winning Emmys were renowned thespians Regina King and Uzo Aduba. 

Be sure to check out Davis’ powerful speech right here.

“You cannot win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there,” she said. More, please.

Check out the beautiful ladies holding their shiny new trophies below and on the flip.

Bravo.
