Good thing Regina King is a two-time Emmy winner, because her son missed her win this year!
"My child is at home, upset, because the DIRECTV went out right before I left," the American Crime star told ET's Kevin Frazier on the red carpet. "He's on the phone with DIRECTV, like, 'My mom is going to be on, and you guys got to come out.' He's trying to get a technician out to the house right now."
When Regina sat down with ET backstage after winning Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series, we had to follow up and see if her son, Ian, was able to get the TV working in time to see her speech. So, she called him right then and there to ask.
"He's saying, 'ay-oooo!'" she reported of the 20-year-old's adorable celebration when he answered her call. "OK, Ian, you're on Entertainment Tonight right now."
"Oh, I almost cussed," he replied.
Turns out, Ian wasn't able to watch live, but he did have Regina's sister, What's Happening Now! actress Reina King, stay on the phone while his mom's category was announced. As they wrapped up the call, he told his mom, "I love you, I love you, I love you, too. Turn up! Turn up!"
The evening was still a family affair, as Regina brought her mother as her date and revealed on the red carpet that the Emmy she won last year -- also for American Crime -- is at her mom's home in Cincinnati.
"Just having some time with her by myself a lot is wonderful," Gloria King told ET. As for the recognition her daughter has received from the Academy, she said, "There are no words. There's absolutely nothing I could say. All I could remember is her practicing with an Emmy when she was little."
