We LOVED this sister moment between two-time Emmy winner Regina King and Emmy nominee Taraji P. Henson. As Regina was walking to the stage to accept the award for best supporting actress in a limited series/movie, she grasped Taraji’s hands in pure sisterhood. We loved it! Taraji always celebrates when her peers win.
Remember this amazing moment from last year? Taraji then switched it up on us and changed from her canary yellow red carpet dress to this amazing sparkling dress and bob. Werk Taraji!

We loved last night’s public displays of affection. Sterling K. Brown took home the award for best supporting actor in a limited series/movie and also won over the entire audience with his heartfelt speech. Speaking to his significant other, Sterling said “Contrary to popular belief, I got the hottest chick in the game rocking my chain!”
There really is a Jay Z line for every occasion in life. Sterling K. Brown has a bright future ahead of him. His new series ‘This Is Us‘ premieres on NBC September 20th. We’ll definitely be tuning in.
But the Black love fest didn’t stop there.

After taking home the best lead actor in a limited series/movie, Courtney B. Vance saved the best for last when he gushed over his wife Angela Bassett. Taking a cue from Sterling K. Brown, he noted that Angela Evelyn Bassett (yes, he said her entire name) was the only woman rocking his chain.
