Viola’s ‘confusing Globes nerves’

Viola Davis has shared her thoughts on being a favourite to win a Golden Globe this weekend.

The 49-year-old Academy Award-nominated actress received a nod in the Best Actress in a TV Series, Drama category at the Globes for her work in crime series, How to Get Away with Murder.

Many critics believe she’ll take home the trophy this year and Viola isn’t sure how to process that.

"The people feel like you have to win, and then when you don't win, you feel like the biggest loser!" she explained to ET Online. "And yet you don't really care. It's very confusing, but I have to say that no matter what, after your category is announced, all your nerves go away. You're ready to eat. You're ready to drink. You're ready to have fun."

Viola has been the recipient of Golden Globes nominations before for her roles in 2008 movie Doubt and 2010 release The Help.

She is equally honoured to be up for a gong in a TV category this year.

"It's all the same," Viola noted. "It's very nerve wracking."

How to Get Away with Murder centres on a brilliant law professor named Annalise Keating, played by Viola, and her students. The group gets embroiled in a murder plot and must find a way out of the entanglement.

Viola walked away with a People’s Choice Award Wednesday night for her work in How to Get Away with Murder.

The 72nd Golden Globe Awards will be held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hill, California on Sunday January 11.

The ceremony will be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, with the duo teaming up to anchor the event for the third and final time.
