Congratulations to Viola Davis and Uzo Uduba for their SAG Award wins. Viola Davis (How to Get Away with Murder) won the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series. Uzo Uduba (Orange Is the New Black) won the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series.
This is the first time in SAG Awards history that both Lead Female Actor categories in television have been won by Black women. Let’s hope that these ladies have continued success and more barriers are broken, especially considering the Academy Awards fiasco this year.
Videos of their speeches have been included below.
