Viola Davis gives stunning Oscars 2017 speech

After winning the best actress in a supporting award for her role in “Fences,” Viola Davis gave one of the most emotional, eloquent speeches of the night.

“Exhume those bodies. Exhume those stories. Stories of the people who dreamed - and never saw those dreams to fruition.”

Other viewers were just in awe of her delivery.
