The other two are Viola Davis and Halle Berry, who won their Oscars in 2016 and 2001, respectively.
King has three Emmys, which she won in 2015, 2016 and 2018.
Davis won the best lead actress in a drama series Emmy award in 2015 for her role in ABC’s “How to Get Away with Murder.”
Berry won her Emmy in 2000 for her role in the television movie “Introducing Dorothy Dandridge.”
King told CNN recently that she felt that she had been “preparing for this role all my life.”
That time, it seems, has certainly paid off.
