After her historic Emmys win and powerful acceptance speech, Viola Davis has inspired countless women and girls around the globe. Among them is Davis's own daughter, who paid the ultimate tribute to the actress this Halloween: she chose to be her mother for her costume.
Davis revealed her adorable and heartwarming mini-me in a Facebook post over the holiday weekend, writing that her daughter, Genesis, rejected several other costume ideas before settling on the best one of all. "So.....the Elsa costume? Didn't work for her. The Pirate? A no go," Davis wrote on her page. "So she finally said, 'I just want to be YOU mommy'! So... uhh.....this is ME."

The photo really does say it all -- it's simply too cute. Genesis's huge grin is absolutely infectious, and we love that she also chose a white sleeveless dress, similar to the one her mom sported on Emmy night. But the best part, we have to say, is the statuette itself. It may just be a coincidence that it more closely resembles an Oscar than the Emmy that Davis actually won, but we'd like to imagine that it's a bit of foreshadowing for when Davis finally claims a little gold guy of her own. We'll keep our fingers crossed for that, and hope that Genesis keeps her inventive spirit for many more Halloweens to come.
