The tale of the two Reginas: Regina Hall says there are "perks" to being mistaken for Regina King

Hall won the Best Actress honor for her role in Support the Girls, while King received the Best Supporting Actress for role in If Beale Street Could Talk.
While both talented actresses went home award winners last night, Hall joked that the biggest win for her lately has actually been receiving some of the free stuff meant for King — because people often get them mixed up.
“I hope she wins [more awards], because people get us confused and I get all the perks,” Hall said at Monday’s event, according to People.
“Seriously, they’re like ‘Here’s a gift certificate for Regina King, for $5,000 for Barney’s’ and I’m just like, ‘I’m her!’ They’re like, ‘We love you Ms. King!’ I’m like, ‘Thank you.’ “
She continued, “So let’s hope she wins that Oscar ’cause God knows what I’ll get … I’ll get a car! So congratulations to her for being phenomenal.”
Hall’s wish may come true. King has already received the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress in Beale Street, so an Oscar nod, or even a win, is possible.
Oscar nominations come out January 22. The 91st Academy Awards will air live on February 24 on ABC.
