Regina King is the reigning Best Supporting Actress Oscar winner. When you win an Oscar, that’s how you are introduced wherever you go – Regina King, Oscar winner. She was at the Emmys last night, and she’s won a few Emmys, but even at the Emmys, the Oscar mention came first. The Emmys, then, is her victory lap kickoff. Full Story

There were a lot of “Queens” in attendance last night. Queen, the band. Queen Latifah. Olivia Coleman and Helen Mirren in spirit. The Queen of Wakanda, Angela Bassett. Billy Porter if we’re still saying “yasss Queen!” And then there was Regina King. Lainey schooled me that “Regina” means “Queen” in Latin, so she counts for that alone, but Regina King has earned her spot as Hollywood royalty aside from the origins of her name. Full Story

Roma and The Favourite have the most Oscar nominations (10) this year. And, since it’s the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, The Favourite was always expected to do well at the BAFTAs. Roma took Best Picture, maintaining its position as the frontrunner with two weeks now to go before the Oscars, and Oscar voting set to begin on Tuesday and this is a strong showing, for sure. Full Story

Regina King and the Beale Street 3

All of us who write on this site have written repeatedly about how much we love If Beale Street Could Talk. It’s so … much. This is a film that will hold up, there will never be a time, in 10 years, 20 years, 100 years, when it won’t be relevant, when it won’t be seen as a masterpiece from the storytelling to the acting to the directing to the score. Full Story

That was my poor attempt at a play on If Beale Street Could Talk, but seriously, no one talks like Regina King. In an award season that refuses to give us a break from insufferable, worse-than-Hathaway twee speeches from Lady Gaga (I like Gaga but can she DO LESS please?), we’ve been saved by Regina King. Full Story

We need to talk about Regina King. Specifically, we need to talk about what an epic display of Showing Your F-cking Work Regina King displayed at the Golden Globes. First, there’s her work in If Beale Street Could Talk. As Lainey told you a few days ago, Regina King is extraordinary in it Full Story

“It just feels good being Regina King”

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 4, 2019 16:39:22 January 4, 2019 16:39:22

Last year Regina King did an interview with Variety and she was asked what it means to her, in this stage of her career, her 30 year career, to be getting the parts she’s getting, the nominations, the awards, the hype, and the SHINE. I loved her response:  “It’s interesting because if you would have asked me this question a while ago, I probably would have done something to deflect and not own up to the fact that I’ve worked really hard, and that I can say that I do deserve to be here without feeling like I’m being an a–. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

As you may have heard, the Screen Actors Guild award nominations kicked off all kinds of talk and frustration about snubs and category fraud yesterday. There are actors and films that have been recognized and awarded for weeks that the guild ignored.  Read Full Intro

She’s now trending on Twitter. But don’t forget about Regina King. Regina has been nominated in those same categories. Full Story

Leslie Jones was the Emmys’ Audience Surrogate. That’s the character in a movie or TV show that essentially acts as the proxy for the viewer. In other words, she was all of us. It’s my favourite thing about Leslie Jones. Whether she’s watching the Olympics or Game of Thrones, she has no chill. Full Story
