Congratulations are in order for Regina King, who picked up her second consecutive Emmy Award on Sunday night for her role on ABC’s American Crime.

King appeared to be in total shock when Scandal actress Kerry Washington announced her name as the winner of Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie.

King, clad in a red gown, was moved with emotion when accepting the golden statuette. “This is fantastic,” she said. “I’m so proud of this show, so proud to be a part of this show, to have the opportunity to tell stories that provoke necessary conversation.”

The actress, who also has added directing to her list of accolades, concluded by thanking ABC and her “wonderful, beautiful mom.”

Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story  (working title) will trace Prince Harry and Markle’s relationship from the day they met to the overwhelming media attention surrounding their eventual engagement, which was announced in November.
