"I'm going to lean more to a lot of hard work and a lot of commitment to the gift that I was given,” she told ET. “You know, God blessed me with this form of art, it’s my talent, and once I really realized that this was not something that was just a hobby, but something that I was meant to do and experience, I never let it go. And I’ve continued to respect it and to nurture it.”

Following her nominations, King she was "just elated" with the news.

“I cannot even put into words how I feel right now hearing this exciting news from set. Just elated," she exclaimed in a statement. "So proud of these two amazing and beautiful projects. I'm incredibly lucky and humbled that these roles chose me. For Beale Street, honoring the words and legacy of James Baldwin is truly special. Thank you Hollywood Foreign Press!"

"I’ve wanted to tell stories through film for as long as I can remember and I feel lucky even to have had the opportunity to do that -- to be included in a community of such inspiring artists is incredibly humbling. A huge congrats to all of this morning’s nominees and especially to my dear friend, Lady Gaga.”
