On Sunday, King, who played Sister Night, is up for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie in Watchmen. If she wins, it’ll be her fourth Emmy win in five year.
Set in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Watchmen, created by Damon Lindelof, tackled white supremacy and police brutality. The series also included Don Johnson, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Louis Gossett Jr.
In 2019, Watchmen was HBO’s most popular new series. However, it will not be coming back for a second season as of now. Lindelof declined to be part of a second season but gave HBO his “blessing” to move forward.
HBO programming chief Casey Bloys told USA Today, "It would be hard to imagine doing it without Damon involved in some way."
