She can’t be stopped!

For the second year in a row, actress Regina King took home an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for her role as Terri Lacroix in the ABC drama American Crime.

Flawlessly dressed in a strapless red gown from Elizabeth Kennedy’s Resort 2017 collection, King gracefully accepted her award while thanking her co-stars and the American Crime crew.

“I stand here and I’m holding this for every cast and crew member from Austin to Los Angeles,” she said.

“Thank you ABC for having the guts to have us on your network.”

King, who attended the awards with her mother, also recognized her equally gorgeous date.

“Mom! What a blessing I get to share this with my mom!”

Last year, King took home an Emmy for the same category in what was her first Primetime Emmy Award nomination and win.

Congratulations, Regina!
