One day earlier, the pair confessed they like to stay home for date night. “Wine and Netflix,” the True Blood actress told Us Weekly and other reporters at the Art of Elysium’s Heaven Gala in Los Angeles on Saturday, January 5. “We try to get some sleep when we have a babysitter, so we go to bed at 9. It’s fun stuff at the Grace household. Very exciting stuff.” 

Grace attended Sunday’s award show in support of Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman, which was nominated for best motion picture – drama. In the film, Grace portrayed white supremacist Duke Duke, who reigned as the Grand Wizard of the K.K.K. from 1975 to 1980. It’s a role that that New York native spent months researching for. 

“I’m so proud of him,” Hinshaw told Us on Sunday. “He did an amazing job.”
