While The Woman King might be actress Viola Davis’ splashiest project of 2022, her Grammy win just propelled her to the storied (and exclusive) EGOT club. For those who need to brush up on their entertainment acronyms, EGOT stands for Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony. Only 17 previous individuals have ever claimed EGOT status (by winning all four awards)—and now Davis becomes the 18th.
Her Grammy win comes in the category of Best Audio Book, Narration and Storytelling Recording, for her memoir, Finding Me. Published in April 2022, the book has was touted as a pick for Oprah’s Book Club, a Harper’s Bazaar Best Book of 2022 and Parade and Marie Claire Most Anticipated Book, just to get started.
