The “If Beale Street Could Talk” Oscar winner won her fourth Emmy for her starring role as Angela Abar/Sister Night in HBO’s “Watchmen,” 2019’s most nominated series with a stunning 26 nods (and a record-breaking 11 wins). Already an acclaimed TV director, King is making her feature directorial debut shortly with festival favorite “One Night in Miami,” the fictional account of a meeting between Muhammad Ali, Sam Cooke, Malcolm X and football star Jim Brown that drops on Amazon Prime in January. After debuting at the Venice Film Festival and TIFF, the film put King in the conversation for a possible best director Oscar nod, which would make her the first Black woman director nominated by the Academy. King has also signed on, opposite Idris Elba, to Netflix’s Jay-Z produced all-Black western feature “The Harder They Fall.”
