Regina King. The beautiful actress is a force in every scene she is in. The transformation from a young outspoken girl on your TV every week in show 227 to a heartfelt, drama-filled passion actress has taken place right before our eyes. The 48-year-old, who just picked up the award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in If Beale Street Could Talk, was clearly floored by this honor when she was visibly crying in her humble acceptance speech.

“To be standing here, representing one of the greatest artists of our time, James Baldwin, it’s a little surreal,” she said in her Oscar speech. “James Baldwin birthed this baby, Barry you nurtured her, you surrounded her with so much love and support and so it’s appropriate for me to be standing here because I’m an example of when support and love is poured into someone.”

King picked up a few other awards on her journey towards the Oscars’ win including the Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice Award. King also took home an Emmy Award last September for her role in the Netflix mini-series Seven Seconds.
