As Prince once sagely said, all the critics love you in New York—that is, if your name is Regina. That’s the case for 2018, when Regina Hall and Regina King garnered acting accolades from the New York Film Critics Circle.
As reported by Vulture, King won Best Supporting Actress for the highly anticipated If Beale Street Could Talk, while Hall made NYFCC history as the first black woman in the Critics Circle’s 83-year history to win Best Actress for the summer comedy Support the Girls.
Will these two honors translate to more nominations—and hopefully, wins—as film awards season progresses? We can only hope, but in the meantime, we’re thrilled to see these two talents get some much-deserved (and groundbreaking) shine.
