    Viola Davis' little girl wins all the awards for her Halloween costume.

    The 50-year-old actress shared on her Instagram page on Saturday a photo of her and husband Julius Tennon's daughter Genesis, 4, wearing a white top and red lipstick and holding up a golden statuette resembling an Oscar.

    "So.....the Elsa costume? Didn't work for her. The Pirate? A no go," Davis wrote. "So she finally said, 'I just want to be YOU mommy'! So... uhh....this is ME."

    Davis wore a white sleeveless dress and red lipstick when she won her first Emmy in September. She received the honor her role on the show "How to Get Away With Murder" and made history by becoming the first black woman to win the Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series award.
