Regina King just won best supporting actress for “If Beale Street Could Talk.”
She is the third black actress to win both an Oscar and a Primetime Emmy, joining Halle Berry and Viola Davis.
King thanked her mother and Baldwin, the author of the book that was adapted into the film.
"James Baldwin birthed this baby. And Barry, you nurtured her, surrounded her with so much love and support. So, it's appropriate for me to be standing here, because I'm an example of what it looks like when support and love is poured into someone. Mom, I love you so much. Thank you for teaching me that God is always leaning, always has been leaning in my direction," she said.
King has three Emmys, which she won in 2015, 2016 and 2018.
