Regina King Honors Breonna Taylor, Urges Fans to Vote After Winning Fourth Emmy in Six Years

Regina King has won her fourth Emmy Award in just six years and she used the moment to put a spotlight on important causes.

The 49-year-old actress won the award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for her work in the HBO series Watchmen.

Regina previously won in 2015 and 2016 for her work on the ABC series American Crime. She also won in 2018 for the Netflix series Seven Seconds.

During her speech at the 2020 show, Regina wore a Breonna Taylor shirt to encourage others to support the fight for justice in her case. She also urged her fans to vote.

Regina said, “Have a voting plan. Go to Ballotpedia. Vote up the ballot. Please. Go to Ballotpedia and find out who are voting in your municipal elections. It is very important. Be a good human. Rest in power RBG.”
