Screen Queen Awards
"BEST IN SHOW”

And the Best Actress Award goes to…another 40-something white chick? Boring! We're partial to the likes of Meagan Good and Lauren London around here. KING schools the Academy on the merits of award-winning performances. The best part? You win the booty.

Belly Oral History
"BELLY UP”

Behind mediocre-acting rappers DMX and Nas, the Hype Williams–directed Belly has become a hate-it-or-love-it hood classic. Ten years after its premiere, KING dives into the belly of the beast with this extensive making-of retrospective.

Tatyana Ali
"ALI, BOOM-BA-YAY!”

Leave Ashley Banks behind with box sets of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Today, both Tatyana Ali's fully developed figure and schedule are stacked. She's back on the big screen, in the studio and even giving Obama Girl a run for her money. Talk about a busy body!

Villains
"THE BADDEST BAD GUYS (AND ONE GIRL) IN MOVIE HISTORY”

With superhero movies all the rage, badass villains are back like capes. But how about those who are both bad and ass? KING singles out the eight worst villains of all time.

Dana Davis
"OH, GOODIE!”

Dana Davis' dating preferences are simpler than grade-school arithmetic. The Heroes wonder woman's type of guy: One with a country accent and a blue-collar job. Act right, Southern gentlemen.

Craig Robinson
"THE 36-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN”

In producer Judd Apatow's predominantly white fraternity of comic actors, seasoned rookie Craig Robinson is the lone soul brother. With a major look in Pineapple Express, he's finally experiencing his on-screen coming of age.

TAG
"ACTOR'S CUT”

Sporting vintage threads, emerging actor Columbus Short has a nostalgic style that goes a long way.
