These 7 Women Could Make History At The Oscars Tonight

#7 Viola Davis

Davis already has two Tony awards and an Emmy, so she needs an Oscar statue to fill out her collection and become the first black person to win what's considered the Triple Crown of acting. Only 22 people have ever achieved the feat. That could happen Sunday night as she's nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in the film adaptation of Fences, an August Wilson play. Davis's portrayal of Rose Maxson in the film about a black sanitation worker in 1950s Pittsburgh has already added trophies to her mantle; she picked up a Golden Globe and SAG Award for the role.
