The Unexpected Golden Globes Pre-Show Moment That Has Everyone Buzzing

It's hard to upstage someone as brilliant and breathtaking as Regina King, but somehow that's exactly what happened when the One Night in Miami director dialed into the Golden Globes pre-show to speak to This Is Us star Susan Kelechi Watson ahead of the big night on Sunday. Naturally, it took someone very, very special to take any attention away from her, but the internet went absolutely wild when King's beloved dog Cornbread decided to settle into for a rest during her interview.

During King's pre-show interview, which was broadcast from a remote location as part of the year's socially distanced awards show amid the coronavirus pandemic, she showed off her stunning metallic Louis Vuitton gown and spoke about her experience as a recent first-time host of Saturday Night Live. Though her jaw-dropping dress was in full view throughout the interview, King saved her best accessory for last when her pooch came into the frame to join the conversation and take over Twitter.

King is a Golden Globes regular now

King is one of a record-setting three women to be nominated for Best Director at the 2021 Golden Globes, alongside Nomadland's Chloé Zhao and Promising Young Woman's Emerald Fennell, and she spoke to Watson about her regrets that the feat had not yet been accomplished until this year. Mank's David Fincher and The Trial of the Chicago 7's Aaron Sorkin were also nominated in the Best Director category.

Though this was a first-time appearance at the Globe's pre-show for Cornbread, King is no stranger to Hollywood's wildest night. In 2019, she won a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for her work in If Beale Street Could Talk, and she was also nominated for her work in the Netflix series Seven Seconds. She was previously nominated for her role in American Crime in 2016.

Beyond the Globes, King has picked up a lot of Hollywood hardware at other awards shows throughout the years, including one Oscar for her performance in If Beale Street Could Talk and four Primetime Emmy Awards, most recently in 2020 for her lead role in HBO's Watchmen.
