While The Woman King might be actress Viola Davis’ splashiest project of the year, her recent Grammy nomination is set to potentially propel 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 individuals have ever claimed EGOT status (by winning all four awards)—will Davis be the 18th?
The Grammy nomination comes in the category of Best Audio Book, Narration and Storytelling Recording, for Davis’ memoir, Finding Me. Published in April of this year, the book has already been 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.
