Viola Davis created history by becoming the first at the Oscars
Viola Davis broke the record for the most Oscar nominations for a specific black actress in all of Hollywood history. She also became the only black woman with two Best Actress nominations in total.
Viola Davis created history going through thick and thin. She is in the history books as one of the greatest actresses in the world. Viola Davis has been in the industry for a long time as she is one of the celebrities to be nominated for the same thing.
Prior to declaring numerous 2021 Oscar nominations, Viola Davis had been in the same boat as her co-star Octavia Spencer. They’re both on stage as the most Oscar-nominated black actress in awards history.
The same thing happened 48 years ago
The last time something similar happened about 48 years ago. The respected thing happened in 1973 when Cecily Tyson and Diana Ross were cast in the movie “Sounder” and “Woman Sings the Blues,” respectively. So after 48 years, it was a proud moment for everyone.
In the history books, Gone With the Wind cheerleader Hattie McDaniel became the first black cheerleader not only to be nominated, but also to secure a win for the same thing.
