Viola Davis - Viola Davis Glad Awards Season Is Over

Viola Davis is ''relieved'' awards season is over.

The 46-year-old actress - who was previously nominated for an Oscar for her role in 'Doubt' in 2008 and lost out to Best Actress for her role in 'The Help' this year - says the pressure has a negative effect on her acting because she gets so caught up in promotion for the ceremonies.

Asked how she feels now awards season is over, she said: ''Relieved! The awards buzz is the most nerve-racking thing and it has nothing to do with being an actor.

''After the Oscar nomination for 'Doubt', I went back to work in shock. You're too busy doing all the awards promotion and you're not acting.

''Then I had to go back to work, but I couldn't remember my lines and I was overacting. It remains the worst work I've done.''

Viola is getting used to the attention she receives now she is a household name, but admits there are some aspects that have ''thrown'' her.

She explained to Britain's HELLO! magazine: ''I'm used to it now but I do feel I've lost some of my anonymity. This self-promotion thing has thrown me for a loop.

''Recently I chose a dress and thought, 'I like this dress, it's cute and it doesn't make me feel big.' And someone said, 'Yeah but to this event you have to wear something by a major designer.' ''
