Viola Davis is just one Grammy Award shy of becoming an EGOT: Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony award winner. The How to Get Away With Murder actress spoke about her potential of joining such an esteemed group of entertainers in a recent interview with ABC News. "I don't sing, I mean I really don't sing," she said, crushing the hearts of fans everywhere who had hoped she would one day win a Grammy. Luckily for us, the actress did offer up a genius workaround to her lack of singing abilities. "Well, maybe I'll do a spoken word thing with Kanye West or something like that!" Davis quipped.
The 52-year-old actress, who is up for a Primetime Emmy Award this year, says she isn't too worried about becoming an EGOT anytime soon. "I don't think about it on a day-to-day basis," she told ABC. "Now I say that, but if I go out there and do something and do the spoken word with Kanye West they'll say, 'She didn't want to get into that. She's a liar.'"
So far, Davis has won an Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a drama series for How to Get Away With Murder, an Oscar for best supporting actress for her work in Fences, and two Tony awards, one for best featured actress in a play for King Hedley II in 2001 and best actress in a play for Fences in 2010. Yeah, we're keeping our fingers crossed for that spoken word with West.
