Oscars 2017 Viola Davis UnInspiring Academy Award Winning Speech.

Just a few comments on your speech – Studied to be a journalist. never did it professionally, due to health reasons. one of the most important things i took away is that god gave me a voice and i learned how to use it. this is the best i can do with what i have in our country of freedom of the press. the freedom to speak out for god, myself,family, and defend those that are unable.

thank you lord for your love and light.

Congratulations Viola Davis for a palatable performance.
as baby-boomer and a 20th century woman (and so are you). There are too many stories today about 20th Century women and 20th Century men.

we can tell you – Viola Davis – stories longer than our lifespan.

stated in genesis, God took eve out of Adam’s rib as his helper.

we 20th century women (all women) are the helper and the backbone and the NECK that carry our adam. Our family. God.

I respect the living and the dead and my God – Jesus Christ.

Stories are told everyday by – us – regular people of all professions and/or no profession. Children should not misunderstand your message that they have to be an actor to tell a real life story.

short, meaningful stories are seen everyday on social media of family/friends of loving, funny, adorable silly, breathtaking selfies.

horrific stories, too.

thank you lord for your love and light.

Thank you lord for your love and light.

thank you lord for your love and light.

In jesus name. amen



Viola Davis took home her first Oscar for best supporting actress. In her speech, she stressed the importance of telling the stories of that are buried and nevver had the chance to be told.

“You know, there’s one place with all the people with the greatest potential are gathered, and that’s the graveyard,” she said. “People ask me all the time, ‘What kind of stories do you want to tell, Viola?’ And I say, exhume those bodies, exhume those stories. The stories of the people who dream big and never saw those dreams to fruition. People who fell in love and lost.”

August Wilson, who wrote the play from which “Fences” is adapted, was among the people she thanked. “Here’s to August Wilson who exhumed and exalted the ordinary people,” Davis said.

Davis thanked her husband and her daughter: “teach me every day how to live, how to love.”

“I’m so glad you are the foundation of my life,” she added.
Davis also thanked “Fences” co-star and director Denzel Washington in her speech.

“Oh captain, my captain. Denzel Washington,” she said. “Thank you for putting two entities in the driving seat, August (Wilson) and God, and they served you well.”

Fences, directed by Denzel Washington was also nominated for best picture and best adapted screenplay.

Davis was previously nominated for her roles in “The Help” (2011) and “Doubt” (2008). shemade history earlier this year by becoming the first African-American woman nominated for three Academy Awards.
“I became an artist and thank God I did,” she said, “because we are the only profession that celebrates what it means to live a life.”


thank you lord for your love and light.

In jesus name. amen
