Viola Davis’s Critics Choice Award Speech About Being Who You Are

Viola Davis gave this remarkable speech about being her truest self and finding out that asking herself the “why” question to everything operating in her world was the greatest gift, even discovering it at 51. This ‘why’ question regarding fitting the norms of society, especially as a woman is what ultimately allowed herself to embrace being happy with herself. Viola Davis gave this Critics’ Choice Awards speech and elaborated on a very powerful line, saying “the privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.”
