    Viola Davis was honored with the first-ever #SEEHER Award, which is an outgrowth of an effort to eliminate bias against women in entertainment. 

    The "How to Get Away With Murder" star remarked in an emotional acceptance speech that "it's hard to accept being a role model for women when you're trying to lose weight." Davis said she has overcome her initial apprehension of the taking on the role in the ABC drama because she thought she would have to conform to preconceived notions of body image and style. 

    "I truly believe that the privilege of a lifetime is being who you are, and I just recently embraced that at 51," said Davis, who also won an award for her supporting work in the film "Fences."
