The show hasn't even started but the moment of the night has already happened for me. Whether or not Viola Davis take home the Oscar (I totally think she will), she is already a winner in my book.
I was on Facebook praying to God that she wouldn't wear a wig and lo and behold she appears on the screen looking ever bit the queen that she is. When interviewed by Ryan Seacrest she said that her hair was by her 'Momma, Alice Davis.'
The whole moment was just so beautiful that it brought tears to my eyes. If you ask me why I was crying I honestly couldn't tell you. There is just something so majestic about seeing a black woman embracing the fullness of her beauty. It was just breathtaking. Here she is on one of the biggest fashion and beauty stages in the world and she chose to come as her full authentic self and I absolutely loved it. I can't say I absolutely loved the Vera Wang dress that she was wearing, but she worked the hell out of it. Her skin was magnificient and glowing. She has a body of a goddess and she looked divine.
Being in the business of Show Business it is hard for a person to step outside of the mold of what people think they should look like. We have a certain way expect our celebrities to look and when they don't look that way we immediately shun them.
I honestly don't think any other actress would have been brave enough to do what Viola did and the sad part is the fact that one would have to be brave to do it. I totally salute Viola because in one gesture she has completely joined my list of She-ros.
YOU GO GIRL!!!!
