This year’s Emmy awards, which were held on 18 September, were a proud occasion for actor Courtney B. Vance and actress Regina King.
The awards, that recognise excellence in television, were in their 68th year.
Regina King was awarded an Emmy for ‘Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series’, for her role in drama ‘American Crime’.
It wasn’t the first time she’d won the award, having also taken it home in 2015 for the same television role. Regina has also been recognised this year for the part she plays in the series, in the form of a Golden Globe, a Satellite Award and an NAACP Image Award.
Courtney B. Vance also took home a prestigious award, winning ‘outstanding lead actor in a limited series or movie’, coming out on top of the likes of Idris Elba and Benedict Cumberbatch. He won the award in recognition of his role in ‘The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story’.
Courtney gave a shout-out to his wife in his acceptance speech, saying “Last but not least, to the woman who rocks my chain thank you Angela Bassett, this one’s for you girl”.
