9/20/2015 0

Breaking through as the first African-American woman to win the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama, Viola Davis added the gold statue to the SAG Award that she collected for her performance as defense lawyer and university law profressor Annalise Keating on 'How To Get Away With Murder', which returns for its second season this Thursday (September 24th).

"The only thing that separates women of color from anyone is opportunity," said Davis as she thanked Shonda Rhimes, Oscar winner Halle Berry and fellow nominee Taraji P. Henson, who greeted Davis with a big hug after her name was called. Watch her powerful speech beneath:

Making her second appearance on the cover of Vogue, stunning actress Lupita Nyong'o makes a golden appearance on the October issue of the publication, which sees her Yale education, America vs. Kenya and eventually having a family.

On Her Yale Education: “Before, I was just going on instinct, but Yale taught me that it’s about giving yourself permission to pretend.”

On America vs. Kenya: “I definitely feel there’s a lot of America in me. The idea that you can be self-made is very vibrant in America. You can do anything that you want to do. That spirit pushes you on. But it took me leaving Kenya to really appreciate the glory of the place. Ultimately. I will always be a child of Kenya.”

On Having A Family: “This is my conundrum. When I was back in Kenya this past week, I would be driving along with my mother and she would say, ‘That’s a nice school for children’ and look at me like——” Lupita raises her eyebrows as if to say, My mom wants me to have children now. “But I think that will all be determined when I have that moment. When I have that man.”

On Blackness: “As Africans, we don’t grow up with a racial identity. We grow up with cultural and ethnic identity before racial identity. I never used the word black as a child. It was never a thing. When was I ever discussing black? Why?”
