— -- Viola Davis could become a two-time Emmy winner on Sunday, as the "How to Get Away With Murder" actress is up again for her role as Annalise Keating on the ABC drama.

Davis already has one Emmy for her work on the series. She also has an Oscar for her role in the movie adaptation of "Fences." She won a Tony for her original Broadway performance in "Fences" back in 2010. And she has another Tony for her performance in August Wilson's "King Headley II."

That means Davis is just a Grammy Award away from an EGOT. So, how about it?

"I don't sing, I mean I really don't sing," Davis told ABC News. "Well, maybe I'll do a spoken word thing with Kanye West or something like that!"

"I don't think about it on a day-to-day basis," Davis continued, adding: "Now I say that, but if I go out there and do something and do the spoken word with Kanye West they'll say, 'She didn't want to get into that. She's a liar.'"

Despite having all that hardware for her mantle, Davis isn't jaded about being honored for her work. Nevertheless, as much as she's looking forward to Sunday night's Emmys, mostly, she said, she's just looking forward to a little time off.

"I'm excited because I have a couple days off and I'm going to take myself to Universal Studios to get on that Harry Potter ride, I really am. Seriously," she said with a laugh. "People don't think that I'm fun. I'm fun!"

The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards air Sunday night beginning at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
