Amanda Waller Wins an Emmy


Suicide Squad (and beyond) actress Viola Davis will be bringing the latest incarnation of Amanda Waller to the screen and if her recent accolades are any indication, we might just have a good one on our hands.

Davis hoisted an Emmy award for Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series earlier this evening.

She won the award for her performance on ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder. If you aren’t familiar with the show, here’s the gist of it.

"Annalise Keating (Oscar-nominated,Tony-winning actress Viola Davis) is a brilliant, charismatic and seductive professor of defense law, who teaches a class called How to Get Away With Murder. Annalise, also a criminal defense attorney, selects a group of students — the best and the brightest — to assist with cases at her firm alongside her employees, the trustworthy and discreet Frank Delfino (Charlie Weber) and Bonnie Winterbottom (“Gilmore Girls” alum Liza Weil), an associate attorney. Mysteries arise that test everyone’s limits and reveal dark truths."
