When it comes to this awards season, actor Viola Davis has been on a steady roll.

Davis’ latest achievement came Sunday night at the 27th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, where she won for her role in the critically acclaimed Netflix film “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.” Davis took home the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role.

A week earlier, Davis won two NAACP Image Awards, including one for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role.

The win for Davis, best known for her roles in “Fences,” “The Help” and “How to Get Away with Murder,” was her third solo victory at the SAG Awards.
