After sharing a moment with her mom after her name was announced, Regina took to the stage and said: “To be standing here, representing one of the greatest artists of our time, [author] James Baldwin, it’s a little surreal. James Baldwin birthed this baby, [director] Barry you nurtured her, you surrounded her with so much love and support and so it’s appropriate for me to be standing here because I’m an example of when support and love is poured into someone.
“Mom, I love you much. Thank you for teaching me that God has always been leaning in my direction.”
