Viola Davis thinks she deserves to win the 2023 Grammy Award

Viola Davis is one Grammy away from becoming the 18th person to achieve EGOT status. The acclaimed actress has revealed she is hoping to win the title at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Davis on Thursday night appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and campaigned for herself to win the award. “I gotta tell you – the Grammy thing…I’m a serious actor. I am,” she told the late night host.

“I went to Juilliard [School of the Performing Arts]I think it’s about work. [But] it’s like my niece Annabella who collapsed at Circus Circus when she was 6, snot dripping and crying, and all she said was, ‘I want to win! I want to win!’ In my brain with the Grammy, I’m like, ‘I want to win! I want to win!'”

Davis is nominated for this year’s Grammy Awards in the Best Audiobook Recording, Storytelling and Storytelling category for her audiobook Finding Me.

“There’s something about me that says I deserve it,” she continued. “All have already won it!” Davis also told Kimmel that the Recording Academy “might throw a bone at me”.

Davis has previously won a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for How to Get Away With Murder (2015), an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for Fences (2016) and two Tonys – Featured Actress in a play for King Hedley II (2001) and lead actress in a play for Fences (2010).
