King is no stranger to the Globes, having won for her supporting role in If Beale Street Could Talk in 2019. Tonight, King is nominated again for directing the drama One Night In Miami.
Regina King's Glimmering Golden Globes Dress Took Over 350 Hours to Make
King is one of three women nominated for the Best Director prize tonight, alongside Chloé Zhao (Nomadland) and Emerald Fennell (Promising Young Woman). This is the first time in Golden Globes history that multiple women have received a nod in the Best Director category, with Barbra Streisand being the only woman to ever win the award (for Yentl in 1983).
While King has been praised for her film directorial debut, she is currently grabbing headlines with her dress. Designed by Louis Vuitton, the silver and black silhouette took over three-hundred and fifty HOURS to make, while there are over three-thousand sequins framing the front. King's jewelry was provided by Forevermark.
During the Golden Globes pre-show, King talked to E! News about her nomination, saying that she thought it represented a "true shift of recognizing just how many women are powerful artist-storytellers." She added that "there are a lot of powerful voices out there."
One Night In Miami has two other nominations at the Globes tonight: Best Supporting Actor for Leslie Odom Jr. and Best Original Song for "Speak Now."
Regina King is true royalty.
