Fences and How To Get Away With Murder star Viola Davis accepted the first-ever Award at the Critics’ Choice Awards Sunday night. As usual, she was a vision to behold with a speech we’ll not soon forget.

The award recognizes Davis’ consistent work in portraying three-dimensional women, so she joked, “It’s hard to accept being a role model for women when you’re trying to lose weight.”
