With her down-to-earth beauty and winning personality, actress Regina King could have made a career out of playing wives of leading men Eddie Murphy, Will Smith and Cuba Gooding, Jr., as she did in films like Daddy Day Care, Enemy of the State and Jerry Maguire. But her talents and outsize personality were destined to break out sooner or later. And sure enough, King stole the show with memorable supporting roles in Legally Blond 2 and Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Dangerous.
But it was her turn as R&B legend Ray Charles' backup singer and lover, Margie Hendricks, in the acclaimed Ray that earned the actress considerable praise and recognition, leading to higher profile work and a regular role on the sixth season of "24." From there, King worked regularly both in features and on television, earning acclaim for her performances in the quirky indie comedy Year of the Dog and the Lifetime movie Living Proof, while voicing multiple characters on the animated series "The Boondocks." Building on her exposure from "24," King was cast in a leading role for the gritty cop drama, "Southland," which earned the actress further critical praise while cementing her status as a talented and versatile performer.
King garnered further praise and recognition for her acting in American Crime, a critically claimed anthology series on ABC. King earned two Emmy Awards for her performance in the show. The Netflix crime drama Seven Seconds also drew more critical praise for King's acting and earned her another Emmy. She starred in If Beale Street Could Talk, Barry Jenkins' follow-up to Academy Award-Winning film, Moonlight. Her portrayal of Sharon Rivers in the romantic drama earned King her first Academy Award win.
King is the recipient of various accolades, including an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award, and three Primetime Emmy Awards. Time magazine named King one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2019. Her feature film directorial debut came with the drama One Night in Miami (2020), for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Director at the 78th Golden Globe Awards. She became the second black woman to be nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Director.
