Actress will serve as online insider for awards

Regina King (“Southland”) has been tapped as “social media ambassador” for the 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on Jan. 29.

In an announcement Tuesday, organizers of the SAG Awards said she will post on Twitter and Facebook.

“King will serve as the online face for the awards, giving viewers unprecedented access to behind-the-scenes moments during the weeks building up to the show, as well as from the red carpet,” the org said.

King will announce this year’s nominations Dec. 14, then continue to tweet and post about the SAG Awards, including updates on presenters and fashion.

King was nominated for a SAG Award as a member of the cast in the film “Ray,” for which she won an NAACP Image Award.
