Last night, actresses Viola Davis and Lupita Nyong'o represented natural hair and beauty BIG time at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Nyong'o's hair was braided with extension hair in small cornrows into a puff. Two big braids were wrapped around the puff and crossed at her crown area. I thought it was a gorgeous style! Nyong'o wore a long sleeve, black and white striped belted gown that was decorated with a red and green floral print. She wore black and silver earrings and rings. Nyong'o, alongside Jared Leto presented the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Miniseries or Television movie.

 Viola Davis won the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series for her "holding no punches" lawyer role in How to Get Away With Murder. Davis rocked a pretty teeny weeny Afro (TWA) parted on the side. She wore a long white halter top dress, orange and white chandelier earrings, and a black and silver bangle bracelet. Davis looked stunning at the podium! She gave a heartfelt and teary-eyed acceptance speech. My favorite part of it was the end when she said, "And thank you to all the people who love me exactly how God made me, and that's my beautiful husband Julius, my 4-year-old daughter at home, Genesis, and my mother, May Alice Davis. Thank you so much."

Both Nyong'o and Davis' glowed at the awards. It is nice to see dark skin African-American woman rocking their natural hair at a major awards show, because there was a time when that did not happen. I know I'm not the only one who yelled, "Yesss!"at the screen! In her speech, Viola Davis also addressed colorism. She said, "So I'd like to thank Paul Lee, Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers, Bill D'Elia, and Peter Nowalk for thinking that a sexualized, messy, mysterious woman could be a 49-year-old dark-skinned African-American woman who looks like me."
