Reporter: With her win viola Davis was the first to take home the Emmy for her lead role in "How to get away with murder." We won because I did my job. When you're a kid sitting there watching TV whether you're black or brown or of any color, and you see someone who looks just like you, then you believe all things are possible. The only thing that separates women of color from anyone else is opportunity. Viola Davis is proof that talent wins out in the end. Reporter: Off the stage and field, there were so many heroes among us. The families of the Charleston church shooting victims taught us heroism comes from the heart when there was room for forgiveness. Speaking directly to the killer in court, they showed incredible strength in the wake of tremendous grief. We have no room for hate so we have to forgive. I will never talk to her ever again, but I forgive you. ? We shall ? They taught us a lesson, didn't they, on how to move on and not let the killer claim even more lives, the lives of the living. Reporter: In a year with so much darkness, a beautiful lesson from all of these heroes on how to view the world. A beautiful lesson. Boy, those Charleston families get me every time.
