September 20, 2020 the 72nd Emmy’s Award aired at 8 pm EST. Although empty building due to COVID-19, the Host & Award recipients made the best of the night.
“Watchmen’s” Regina King made history at the 72nd Emmy Awards Sunday.
King’s win for lead actress in a limited series or movie for her portrayal of Angela Abar (a.k.a. Sister Night) in the HBO superhero drama is her fourth career Emmy. This ties the record held by Alfre Woodard for most acting Emmys won by a Black performer.
The statement King made by just wearing the shirt of “Breonna Taylor” says that we’re in this together.
Regina King; “This allowed me to tap into all those things I think are just wonderful about being a Black woman,” King previously told The Times. “[T]he blueprint that was the inspiration for Angela was probably every Black woman that ever was.”
