Sterling K. Brown Just Gave the Most Moving Emmys Speech

Sterling K. Brown Just Gave the Most Moving Emmys Speech”

Tonight, he won Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for This Is Us, becoming the first black man in 19 years to do so And I hereby nominate Sterling K. Brown for an Emmy for Outstanding Writing for An Emmy Acceptance Speech, because his was amusing, thoughtful, irreverent, and full of humility.until he was rudely cut off. To our producers and directors, in particular, John Requa, Glenn Ficarra, and the insane cool Ken Olin. I love him for taking me on this journey. I didn't get that loud.

He then thanked his producers, directors, manager and wife. And to my wife - I didn't get to thank my wife - you make my life worth living and you gave me two of the most lovely things that God has ever put on this planet. My sons. ... Your daddy loves you with the strength of 1000 suns. I'll see you Monday after work.

"Because of the category, and because it's been 19 years [since a black actor, Andre Braugher, won], it feels big". From shouting out the actors who won the prize before to calling out his on-screen family, Brown gave a speech both hilarious and moving, much like his This Is Us performance. Andre Braugher, he came and spoke to us when I was at NYU. Thank you for representing it as well as you did, and making me not feel as if something is wrong with me.' You often have this feeling that it's just me, and then you get a chance to see somebody else go through what it is that you go through, and then you feel like you're not alone again. "So I'm bugging out!"

Staring at the statue in his hand, the actor said incredulously, "When I think about it, like Walter White held this joint?" I don't want to be a flash in the pan... I love what I do so much. "I am always really, really proud of an opportunity to tell people that they're not alone", Brown told EW.

Perhaps it was because of his resistance to finishing or the fact that his words were so compelling, but social media erupted in a firestorm of frustration over Brown's speech being cut short. Hit the comments and let us know!
