Viola Davis is not letting go of her Emmy — which she won Sunday for her starring role in ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder — anytime soon: The Oscar-nominated actress (and her Emmy) appeared on Ellen following her win to talk about sleeping with the pointy award, making history, and her husband’s initial reaction to her speech.

Davis kicked off her acceptance speech with a quote from Harriet Tubman, one she loved and thought was “so progressive.” “And my husband said afterwards, ‘V, I didn’t know where you were going with that! I really didn’t!’” Davis said, laughing. “When you were saying those white women with their arms stretched out over the line, I was like ‘What is she doing?’ But he said, ‘When you said Harriet Tubman said it, I was like, ‘Oh my God, thank God.’”

DeGeneres, for her part, initially thought Davis was “drunk maybe” — and Davis admitted to drinking prosecco before the show as she was getting ready. “This past time, I drank while I was getting ready, while my daughter was jumping on my lap,” Davis said, referring to her 5-year-old daughter. “I just guzzled the glass.”

Watch both parts of the interview below to hear more about Davis’ daughter — who told her mom she would still be her “favorite girl” even if she lost — and what it was like winning her first Emmy.
