Only three women of color have won Best Female Actor in a TV Drama at the SAG Awards and they all come from shows Shonda Rhimes produces

Sandra Oh won for her role as Christina Yang in Grey’s Anatomy in 2006

“…and I want to thank, especially to our creator Shonda Rhimes whose casting vision I believe in so wholeheartedly, I’m really proud to be on a show whose casting is a little more representative of how I think the world is. To all my fellow Asian-American actors out there, I share this with you, and be encouraged and keep shining. Thank you very much.”

Chandra Wilson won for her role as Miranda Bailey in Grey’s Anatomy in 2007

“…thanks for this award, especially on behalf of my daughters, who I want to know, with this nose, this height, this color skin, these arms.. look what you can accomplish.”

Viola Davis won for her role as Annalise Keating in How to Get Away with Murder in 2015

"…thank you for thinking that a sexualized, messy, mysterious woman could be a 49-year-old, dark-skinned, African-American woman who looks like me.”
