Regina King was up for Best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or a Movie against a slew of heavy hitters, including Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, and Angela Bassett for American Horror Story: Freak Show; Mo’Nique for Bessie, and Zoe Kazan for Olive Kitteridge. King might not have been expecting this win; it’s her first nomination, and her first win. And how sweet it was.
She was psyched.
Taraji was living for this.
