When mommy is away, daughters will play.

As Viola Davis continues to celebrate her historic win for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her role as Annalise Keating in How to Get Away With Murder, her child is having a little fun in the sweetest (and most innocent) way possible.

On Tuesday afternoon, Genesis Tennon was able to log into mommy's personal Instagram to record a special message for her talented parent.

"I love you mommy and I hope you win another Emmy," she shared in what appears to be her school uniform. "You're my favorite girl and I love you."

She ended the video by blowing kisses and showing off her purple nail polish. Hey, we told you it was going to be cute.

"Hacking mommy's instagram with the help of Team JuVee!!!" the caption read as the video spreads to fans across the country.

It's been quite a week for Davis as she prepares for the season two premiere of her hit series. Ever since her inspiring speech at the Emmy Awards, the actress has received tons of support from the Hollywood community and strangers alike.

Ellen DeGeneres called her "spectacular" while Kerry Washington praised Davis' speech as the "best of the night."

Even Oprah Winfrey sent over a gorgeous bouquet of flowers for the Emmy winner.

 "Overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and support shown to me over the past 24 hours," she tweeted one day after the show. "I'm so grateful. Thank you!"
