There are actresses, and then there’s Viola Davis. The 51-year-old Academy-Award nominee has been enticing moviegoers for years, and more recently captivated viewers as the morally watered down Annalise Keating on ABC’s How To Get Away With Murder. On Christmas day, Davis will shine bright like a diamond once again in Fences, starring opposite Denzel Washington who also acts as the movie’s director. And while Davis has long had the support of the people, she’ll now forever be immortalized on Hollywood Walk of Fame with her own star.

Monday evening (Dec. 19) Hollywood Walk of Fame producer Ana Martinez announced the news of Twitter that Davis will be the first honoree of the New Year.

News of Davis’ Hollywood star comes a few days after her Critics Choice Award and her powerful speech on acceptance. Fences has received rave reviews from many and the prediction is her performance will earn her, her first Academy Award. Either way, Vibe is #TeamViola.

Viola Davis’ star will be revealed on January 5, and Fences hits theaters Christmas Day.
