Viola Davis is what we back in the early 2000’s used to call WINNING.

As if the success her ABC show How To Get Away With Murder wasn’t enough triumph for the beauty, the wildly talented star just picked up her first Golden Globe Award for her role in the film adaptation of August Wilson’s play, Fences.  

“This is my fifth nomination. I took all the pictures, went to the luncheon, but it’s right on time,” Davis joked during her acceptance speech before getting serious.

“To all the people who believed in this piece of work. It’s not everyday that Hollywood thinks of translating a play to screen. It doesn’t scream money maker. But it does scream art, it does scream heart.”

The mother of one, who also just got her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last week, went on to personally thank her co-star, Denzel Washington. “I’m a friend and a fan,” she said. “Thank you for being an extraordinary leader, great actor, great director. Thank you for saying ‘trust me’ and ‘remember the love.'”

A stunning Davis, clad in a golden yellow, sequined ensemble, took home the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture, beating out Moonlight’s Naomi Harris, Lion’s Nicole Kidman, Manchester By the Sea’s Michelle Williams and Viola’s former The Help co-star, Octavia Spencer, who was nominated for her role in Hidden Figures.

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
