Regina is getting anonymous praises for her supporting role as Sharon Rivers in the romantic crime drama and expected to break into coveted Academy nominations for the first time in her career.
Olivia Colman was the one who remained as the most favourable contender for winning an Oscar this time under Best Supporting Actress category while her role in the film The Favourite is said to be categorised as the lead actress.

In the last four years, King has won three Emmy Awards and now this most acclaimed possible Oscar nomination can earn her the deserved recognition for her talent. The actress is getting promising reports from the Toronto Film Festival screenings and is sure to get a similar response from the audience after theatrical release.ads
