Viola Davis Reduced To Tears in Acceptance Speech


Viola Davis has been showered in awards the past couple months for The Help, but was nevertheless reduced to tears during her acceptance speech for Best Actress at the SAG Awards this Sunday.

"I was eight years old when I decided to be an actor," Davis said at the podium. "And I am just so privileged to be gazing on the beautiful face of the woman who inspired me that beautiful day. And that's, Cicely Tyson."

Davis was also awarded another award for The Help, as the cast of the movie was awarded the Best Cast Award.
