Taking place at New York City’s TAO Downtown restaurant Monday night (Jan. 7), the actress won the accolade for her role in Supporting The Girls.

According to The Huffington Post, Hall made jokes about being mistaken for Regina King, who recently won Best Supporting Actress for her role in If Beale Street Could Talk.
“So let’s hope she wins that Oscar ’cause God knows what I’ll get … I’ll get a car! So congratulations to her for being phenomenal,” Hall said.
Adding to the love and support, King commented on “the Reginas” both being honored for their work at the event.
“To have this time to share with you sis, oh, God is good,” King said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “I love you so much. You make me laugh. You make me cry. We have shared so much emotion and love together.”
