Viola Davis Wins Emmy, Becomes First Black Actress to Win Lead in a Drama

Viola Davis may have delivered one of the best Emmy speeches ever -- but now her daughter has given us the cutest one.

"I love you, mommy!" 3-year-old Genesis said in an Instagram video posted to Davis' account on Tuesday. "And! I hope you win another Emmy, and you're my favorite girl, and you are it! I love you!"

Davis joked that her little girl "hacked" into her account to post the sweet and sassy message.

The 50-year-old actress shared another aww-inducing post on Tuesday, lending Genesis her stunning Neil Lane jewels from the Emmys. Looks like this little girl is a natural in front of the camera, striking a pose fit for a model!

"Don't know where she got that pose from," Davis joked in her caption. "My baby!!!"

But when Davis nabbed the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series on Sunday, making her the first black woman in history to do so, Genesis was busy getting some shut eye. Backstage with ET's own Kevin Frazier, Davis attempted to get her child on the phone.

"She probably fell asleep," the actress laughed, adding, "You ask how I handle the success, this is it. People are just not impressed by me at home."

And though she seems to have no problem sharing diamonds with Genesis, that Emmy statue is another story.

"Hopefully my daughter won't break it. She'll put candy in there, probably," Davis joked.

The How to Get Away With Murder star is already back at work gearing up for the show's sophomore season, which debuts on ABC this Thursday at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

"Tomorrow I go back to work," Davis told ET on Sunday night. "That's how I digest it, 'cause I can press the fast-forward button and I know that I'm gonna have to continue to be an actor, continue to make choices, continue to perform in a show every week."
