Viola Davis Makes History With Her First Oscar Win

Viola Davis did not only win her first Oscar at the 89th Academy for Best Supporting Actress, she also catapulted herself into one of the most prestigious acting clubs in the world, EGOT.

She is the first black woman to do so.Whoppie Goldberg also has three, but her Tony was for producing Broadway musical ''Thoroughly Modern Millie' not acting.
