"Extra's" Renee Bargh caught up with Emmy winner Viola Davis at Entertainment Weekly and Essence's #TGIT Celebration event this weekend.

Viola, who took home the Outstanding Actress in a Drama award for "How to Get Away with Murder," said she hasn't had time to celebrate her win because she's been busy with work... but she did get a gift from Oprah!

"It was a huge bouquet of flowers… it required us to open our double doors to get it in there; two people had to haul it up, and they're still blooming," Viola gushed. "She knows how to give a gift and she's very generous."

Davis, who has received a ton of praise for her inspiring acceptance speech, told Renee, "I always want to have an impact that's bigger than the award."

She also praised "HTGAWM" creator Shonda Rimes, saying, "It's hard to be great if you don't have material that's great."
