"Viola Davis is possessed. She is. She's possessed of a blazing, incandescent talent. She is, arguably, the most immediate, responsive artist I have ever worked with," Meryl gushed in her introduction. "She is so alive, she glistens. She is a gift to writers. She plants herself in a scene where she has no words, and she writes paragraphs with her eyes."

"Her star has been waiting here patiently for 50 years for her," she ended.


Big fat congrats to @violadavis for her walk of fame star. #welldamndeserved
