Grammys 2012: Winners' list | The Music Mix |

I did not want to watch the Grammys due to the loss of Whitney and the fact I knew it was going to be a dour affair, but I did watch the first hour and got a chance to see Adele win for Someone Like You. Here is the complete list of winners and it looks like Adele swept!

Viola Davis Scores 2 More Projects Post The Help

Best Actress frontrunner Viola Davis has two projects on deck, one being the futuristic tale Enders Game and the other Beautiful Creatures. The former will center around an alien race and the genius assigned by the government to destroy it. Davis is set to play a military psychologist and her costars include Harrison Ford, Hailee Steinfeld, and Abigail Breslin.

Beautiful Creatures is the one that has peaked my interest the most. It centers around two teens who must confront a curse that has haunted one of the teen's family for generations. Davis has the pivotal role of a librarian who will do whatever she can to protect one of the teen's interests.

These two projects, in addition to the Dee Rees project she's developing for Home Box Office has made me really excited for Viola's future in an industry that has been less than kind to darker skinned women.
