Los Angeles, CA (The Hollywood Times) 6/03/2019- “…I’ve watched the BET Awards since its inception so I’m honored to be able to host it. It’s scary though! [Laughs] It’s a big audience. You wanna have a show that’s entertaining for the live audience and the people watching it.” Regina Hall Variety
“And the BET Best Actress Award goes to, Regina Hall!” No, we don’t have inside information on who will win in BET’s Best Actress category this year but Hall is not only hosting the 19th annual BET Awards but she is also one of the nominees. This would definitely be a win, win for her if she is the Best Actress award winner.
Hall has a long list of accomplishments and is best known for her current starring role in Showtime’s “Black Monday”. She is also known for her leading roles in “Girls Trip” and the “Scary Movie” film series. Hall starred in and was the executive producer of ”Little” for Universal Pictures, which was released in April 2019. Her latest film, due out June 14th, is the Warner Bros. production of SHAFT starring Samuel L. Jackson, Jessie T. Usher and Alexandra Shipp.
