Viola Davis knew one thing for certain on the Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet: The thing she loves to hear most from another actor.

" '[Y]ou inspire me.' "

"I love that, I love that word," said "The Help" star Davis, who won the Actor for female in a leading film role later in the evening. "Because so often actors are not inspired. So many leave the profession. And it's always inspiration that keeps you in, that keeps you motivated and lets you know that you're on the right path."

"I love when actors say that to me."

Perhaps her win Sunday night will be even more of an inspiration.
