Regina King, RuPaul and Thandie Newton won EMMY Awards last night. Celebrate with the YBFers inside...
Third time's a charm!
Regina King just was crowned for the THIRD time after taking home yet another gold trophy during the 70th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. The "Seven Seconds" star, who flexed in a lime green Christian Siriano gown, won lead actress in a limited series or movie! She killed her role as grieving mother Latrice Butler in the Netflix imited series. Unfortunately, the show was canceled after its first season.
The super talented tv queen (both in front of and behind the camera) won Best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or a Television Movie in 2015& 2016 for her work on "American Crime." Now, she's a THREE-time EMMY winner.
The 47-year-old actress was totally surprised when her name was called, struggling to find words that expressed how she was feeling inside.
“I wasn’t really expecting this but I am so grateful, TV Academy,” she said. "I didn't have nothing to say 'cause I wasn't really expecting this, but I am so grateful."
The Hollywood vet thanked Netflix “for creating an opportunity to tell a story, hold a mirror up to what’s going on today.” She concluded by thanking her mom and Jesus.

TV Host RuPaul and his show made EMMY history last night.
"RuPaul's Drag Race" won Outstanding Reality-Competition Series, making it the first time a show won in that category and Best Reality Host in the same year. Last week, RuPaul won his third consecutive award for Outstanding Host at the Creative Arts Emmys.
“Thank you so much!” the 57-year-old said to the audience. “This is so lovely. To the Academy, this is so lovely; we are so happy to present this show. I would like to thank, on behalf of the 140 drag queens we have released into the wild."
"If you can't love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else?," he concluded.
