The actress scooped the best supporting actress gong for her role in If Beale Street Could Talk, and was sat a few seats away from Evans. "It's just a reminder of when Hattie McDaniel won, she didn't win just because black people voted for her".

"Chris Evans might actually be better than Captain America", another suggested. "She won because she gave an unbelievable performance and especially then, the Academy was not as reflective as it is now".

King wiped tears from her face as she accepted her award, thanking her mother who was attending the ceremony with her. We've got the video, here. "I feel like it's kind of like one of those full circle moments because so much of the character Shannon was inspired by my mother and my grandmother". "Always, always pushing me to think positively and I know that I would not be here without her, that she's gotten me over the hump in a lot of ways". It also caps an award season that saw her performance in Jenkins' film, in which she played a woman determined to vindicate the imprisoned father of her grandchild, earning a Golden Globe, a Critics' Choice Award and honors from numerous regional critics' groups.
