Viola Davis Might Take Herself Out to Dinner if She Joins the Elite EGOT Group | VIDEO

*Viola Davis has just gotten her first Grammy nomination for her outstanding 2022 memoir “Finding Me,” an audiobook she narrated herself.

The “Woman King” star has already gone ahead and planned how to celebrate her win, should she win. Her win will usher her into the elite group of EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony) winners. She would be the 18th member of the elite group. Some of the EGOT members include Whoopi Goldberg, John Legend and Jennifer Hudson. Davis would be the third Black woman in the group, if she eventually wins Grammy. Other Black women already in the group are Whoopi Goldberg and Hudson.

She spoke about the nomination while at the recent 13th annual Governors Awards at Los Angeles’ Fairmount Century Plaza.

“Felt pretty good,” Davis told Entertainment Tonight about earning the nomination for her audiobook, which she narrated. “It is a surreal title to have,” she added. “And I thought about it, and I thought to myself, ‘If I achieve that, I may take myself out to dinner.’”
