This is the first time two African American women have been simultaneously nominated for lead actress in a drama series!

And if that comes as a shock, sit the eff down! Because if either of the talented ladies wins, it will be the first time EVER a black actress has won in the category!

Considering the dearth of minorities represented in 2015's Oscar noms, this is a big step for the small screen!

Batman v Superman star Ben Affleck was snapped on the Toronto set Monday night. Obvi he's wearing his Bruce Wayne outfit and not the other thing, but there's no mistaking that chin!

And he wasn't the only one!

There is plenty of Hollywood royalty on the Oscars red carpet this year, but Viola Davis most definitely looks the most like a princess!

And who is her date to the ball? Her handsome hubby Julius Tennon, naturally!

Viola wore a pale pink Zac Posen gown with a necklace of perfectly matching pearls.

We only wish the How To Get Away With Murder star's gown was a little more form-fitting because her body is bangin'!

At least we got another look at those guns!
