BIG WINS VIOLA DAVIS & UZO ADUBA MAKE HISTORY AT THE SAG AWARDS LEAD TITLE ROLES BY BLACK WOMEN

And the winner is Viola Davis won the outstanding lead drama actress prize at Sunday's Screen Actors Guild Awards for her role in "How To Get Away With Murder." Davis is just the third actress of color to nab the title.

Sandra Oh of "Grey's Anatomy" won the award in 2005, followed by Chandra Wilson in 2006, who won for the same show. Those two victories -- along with Davis' -- were all for series produced by Shonda Rhimes.
The award for outstanding comedy actress also went to an African-American performer -- Uzo Aduba won her first-ever SAG award for her work on "Orange Is The New Black" at the Jan. 25 ceremony, marking the first year both winning lead actresses were people of color. "Ugly Betty's" America Ferrera won for lead actress in a comedy series in 2006, and was the first Latina to score the prize.
The SAG Awards are an indication that Hollywood is moving in the right direction -- especially after not one actor of color was nominated for the upcoming Academy Awards -- but Davis tells Variety that there is still much progress to be made.
'
"It starts with the casting. It starts with the narratives. The narratives have got to be inclusive," Davis said on the red carpet, moments before her big win. "We're in the 21st century now. People are multicultural now. We know more now about the world and what the world looks like, and it's got to be reflected in the scripts."

VIDEO: CHRIS BROWN FEAT. KENDRICK LAMAR – ‘AUTUMN LEAVES’

Love conquers all. Chris Brown fights for love in the Asian-themed video for “Autumn Leaves” off his Grammy-nominated album X. The R&B superstar plays a sword-wielding samurai in the cinematic clip, which was shot against the lush backdrop of Hawaii and co-stars his girlfriend Karrueche Tran as his on-screen lover.

The couple shows off its chemistry on the beach, and Breezy gives his girl a kiss on the forehead in one romantic scene. Kendrick Lamar does not appear, but Chris does spit his verse.
“I picked Kendrick because his subject matter as a lyricist is beyond everybody else’s,” Chris told Rolling Stone. “There’s a substance to what he says.”

On Jan. 28, Chris and Trey Songz will kick off their “Between the Sheets Tour” in Hampton, Va. He and Tyga also recently shot a video for “Ayo,” the first single off their joint album Fan of a Fan 2.

Watch the dramatic love story unfold.
