​At the 65th annual Grammy Awards, actor Viola Davis became the 18th person in history to win a competitive Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony, making it to the exclusive EGOT club.

​Recently, she took home the Grammy for best audiobook, narration, and storytelling recording for her memoir, Finding Me.

​Davis’s journey to EGOT began with her Tony-award-winning performance as Tonya in August Wilson’s King Hedley II in 2001. She won her second Tony in 2010, and subsequently a best-supporting-actress Oscar in 2017.

​In 2015, Davis became the first Black woman to win the Emmy for best actress in a drama series, Shonda Rhimes.

​Davis is only the fourth Black person and third Black woman to achieve EGOT status, following Whoopi Goldberg, John Legend, and, most recently, Jennifer Hudson.

​“Finding Me,” Davis’s memoir that cinched her EGOT status, punctuates her lofty accomplishments as well as the racism, generational abuse, sexual assault and poverty she survived.

​She also details the racism and incidents she experienced growing up in Rhode Island and within Hollywood.

​Davis is no stranger to breaking down barriers. And she is one of the very best to ever join the elite list of EGOT.
