Sterling K. Brown of “This Is Us” Secures Historic Win at Golden Globes
Sterling K. Brown continues to make history.
“Throughout the majority of my career, I’ve benefitted from colorblind casting which means, ‘You know what? Hey, let’s throw a brother in this role, right? Really cool,” Brown noted during his acceptance speech at the 75th Golden Globe ceremonies. “Dan Fogleman (creator and executive producer of This Is Us), you wrote a role for a black man, that could only be played by a black man. So, what I appreciate so much about this thing is that I’ve been seen for who I am and being appreciated for who I am, and it makes it that much more difficult to dismiss me, or dismiss anybody who looks like me,” he declared to a sea of applause.
This Is Us was also nominated for two additional categories, including a nod to Chrissy Metz for Best Suporting Actress in a Television Series Drama and Best Television Drama Series, which ultimately went to Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale series. This now marks the tenth win for Sterling K. Brown in at least 24 major nominations throughout his career.
