Viola Davis And Taraji P. Henson Once Again Competing For Best Actress In Upcoming Golden Globes

It’s been a monumental year for people of color in Hollywood, with more quality acting roles offered to diverse artists than ever before. This year’s 2015 Primetime Emmys Awards were incredibly historic, with 18 African-Americans receiving nominations in all categories; the highest number ever.

When Viola Davis won the award for Best Actress In A Drama Series for her lead part as Annalise Keating in the hit television show How To Get Away With Murder, she was the first black actress to ever win best actress in a drama series in history. Viola was up against Taraji P. Henson for that award for her part as Cookie in the star-studded smash hit television series, Empire.

And now, the two are both in the running in the same category once again in the upcoming Golden Globes.

It will be interesting to see how the judges vote this time around! The category Best Drama Series has Empire in the running, but not How To Get Away With Murder. Both Regina King (American Crime) and Uzo Aduba (Orange Is The New Black), two African-American women who won Emmy Awards this year, are also in the running for Best Supporting Actress in a TV Series – Drama category.
