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.”

King, who beat out Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story: Hotel), Melissa Leo (All The Way), Jean Smart (Fargo), Olivia Colman (The Night Manager), Kathy Bates (American Horror Story: Hotel) took home the award for the same category last year.

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
