Among the most competitive categories of the night, the star was up against Cate Blanchett for Mrs. America, Shira Haas for UnorthodoxOctavia Spencer for Self Made and Kerry Washington for Little Fires Everywhere

“Wow, wow, this is so freaking weird,” she began while being handed an Emmy statue from someone off-screen. 

“I truly love being a thespian,” King continued. “Thank you Television Academy for choosing me to represent the thespian community.”

The actress also acknowledged her fellow nominees along with the show’s creator and co-executive producer, Damon Lindelof. “I love you, brother,” she said. “Thank you for your brilliant mind. Thank you for choosing all of us to join this journey as you stepped outside of your comfort zone and led us on a journey where we could bring art to truth to power.”
