Viola Davis Could Finally Get Her Oscar Next Year with ‘Fences’


This year was bad for blockbusters, but 2016 could redeem itself with it’s ridiculous slate of awards contenders.  Natalie Portman is the favorite to win Best Actress for her insane portrait of Jackie Kennedy but this trailer makes Viola Davis a serious contender. Unlike the Black Swan actress, Davis doesn’t have an Academy Award- only two nominations. She won a Tony for playing this role on Broadway and award voters might want an excuse to give her her overdue Academy Award. With an Emmy win last year, she could become our next EGOT winner (someone sign her up for an audiobook!). We think Natalie Portman’s still got a grip on the award, but if Viola Davis can bring people to tears, it’s her name Leonardo di Caprio will read off come February.
