Oscar Rewind: 8 Black Actresses & The Roles That Deserved an Oscar

Regina King as Margie Hendricks in Ray

Lost to: Wasn’t even nominated…smh

Uh, can I ask where Regina King’s nomination for Best Supporting Actress went to? Her turn as Margie Hendricks, Ray Charles’ background singing, drug addicted, and love obsessed mistress was almost as magnifying as Jamie Foxx playing Ray, himself. Foxx won Oscar gold for Best Actor, and the film received an Oscar for sound mixing…but that was it. I loved every minute of King’s performance (the good, the bad and the ugly) and wished she would have been recognized. A truly underrated actress.
