This extraordinary Emmy winner. During Sunday's 72nd annual Emmy Awards, Regina King won Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for her performance as vigilante police officer Angela Abar (aka the superhero Sister Night) in HBO's Watchmen.
King accepted the award while wearing a shirt with Breonna Taylor's face on it.
"Wow, this is so freaking weird," she acknowledged of the virtual Emmys this year, before thanking her fellow nominees in the category. "I truly love being a thespian."
King's previous Emmy win -- her third -- was in this same category in 2018 for Netflix's Seven Seconds. Ahead of that, she took home consecutive Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or a Movie Emmys in '15 and '16 for American Crime.
King concluded her acceptance speech with an impassioned call to action: "We gotta vote. I would be remiss not to mention that, being a part of a show as prescient as Watchmen," she said. "Have a voting plan, vote up the ballot, please.
Watchmen was the year's most-nominated series -- with 26 total nominations -- and took home 10 Emmy wins, including Outstanding Limited Series and Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie for co-star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.
