WINNER – ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE – REGINA KING – IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK
REGINA KING: To be standing here representing one the greatest artists of our time, James Baldwin — it’s a little surreal. James Baldwin birthed this baby and Barry, you nurtured her, you surrounded her with so much love and support, so it’s appropriate for me to be standing here because I’m an example of what it looks like when support and love is poured into someone. Mom, I love you so much. Thank you for teaching me that God is always leaning, always has been leaning in my direction. G’moses, they’ll ask me about this later. Um, so many people to thank: Chelsea Barnard, who brought this project to Annapurna, Megan Ellison, Annapurna, Plan B, this amazing cast. My sisters in art: Marina, Amy, Emma, Rachel. It has been an honor having my name be just said with yours, this whole step of the way. It’s been pretty amazing, the Rivers family, KiKi, Colman, Teyonah, Stephan. God is good all the time.
