Regina King has been named one of Glamour’s Women of the Year and true to form, she’s using her spotlight to speak on social justice issues. 

Though King has had quite the successful year, from winning an Emmy for “Watchmen” to becoming the first Black woman director to have a film screened at Venice Film Festival, she says celebrating those wins amid the pandemic and Black Lives Matter protests of 2020 is “bittersweet” and “sobering.”

“I’m just allowing myself to be okay with being emotional and being honest about being emotional,” King tells Glamour in a cover feature published Tuesday. “I really think it’s really important to be honest about all the stuff that we’re feeling

Sei Young Kim wins Women’s PGA Championship

NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. — Sei Young Kim lined up for the putt on the 18th hole that would seal her first LPGA major championship and somehow missed by inches. One member of the gallery — in this instance, roughly 75 officials, photographers and course stragglers — even said “she made it.”

Not quite.

The 27-year-old South Korean laughed off the rare misstep, tapped in the winner and shed the unwelcome label of winningest golfer on the tour without a major. Kim raised her arms “Rocky” style, hugged her caddie and, at last, was a major champion.

Kim chewed up Aronimink Golf Club in record style, tying a tournament record by shooting 7-under-par 63 on Sunday to win the Women’s PGA Championship. She was five strokes better than runner-up Inbee Park.

“I’m actually really hiding my tears at the moment,” Kim said as she stood next to the trophy.

Portage’s Carson Hocevar wins crown jewel Super Late Model race

Carson Hocevar is only 17 years old, but his bucket list is filling up pretty quickly.

The Portage stock car driver has already won three biggies this season when it comes to Super Late Model short-track races across the Midwest, but Hocevar won arguably the biggest of all Sunday afternoon in Winchester, Ind. Hocevar captured the 49th running of the Winchester 400.

Hocevar dominated the race in his No. 71 T.K. Racing/VanDoorn Racing Development Chevrolet. That enabled him to join a list of past winners that includes NASCAR Hall of Fame drivers Rusty Wallace and Mark Martin, along with current stars Kyle Busch, Chase Elliott and Erik Jones, as well as legendary short-track standouts Bob Senneker and Mike Eddy.

“T.K. Racing and VanDoorn Racing Development have been racing the Winchester 400 for years, and to get them their first Winchester 400 is huge for me, especially being the second 400

Sei Young Kim wins Women’s PGA Championship, her first major

Kim chewed up Aronimink Golf Club in record style, shooting a 7-under-par 63 on Sunday to win the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship. She was five strokes better than runner-up Inbee Park, never seriously challenged on the arduous course in suburban Philadelphia.

“I’m actually really hiding my tears at the moment,” she said, standing next to the trophy.

Her dominance was in plain sight. She finished at 14-under 266. Her final-round 63 tied a tournament record, and her 266 set the championship scoring record.

Kim, who earned her 11th LPGA victory, got the championship push rolling when she matched a tournament record with a 29 on the front nine on Friday. She never really slowed down.

About the only surprise Sunday came when her father appeared on a video chat toward the end of her press conference.

“See you soon,” Kim said with a smile and a wave.

She was, Park

The 27-year-old from Seoul became the ninth first-time major winner from the past 10 women’s golf majors with a bogey-free finish at Aronimink in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania.

Seventh-ranked Kim finished the 72 holes on a tournament-record 14-under 266 to beat compatriot Park In-bee by five strokes with Japan’s Nasa Hataoka and Spain’s Carlota Ciganda sharing third on 273 and Sweden’s Anna Nordqvist fifth on 276.
