“What a blessing it is to do what you love for a living. What an honor it is to be recognized by your peers for a job well done. This room is a source of endless inspiration for me. I love all of you,” Sterling said on stage.
“People call us weird and strange; the truth of the matter is everybody’s weird and strange, and we just embrace ourselves for who we are.”
Brown thanked his wife and cast, and his “white family” on the show, which he joked is “nothing like the family from ‘Get Out.’
The 41-year-old actor beat out Jason Bateman (“Ozark”), Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”), David Harbour (“Stranger Things”) and Bob Odenkirk (“Better Call Saul”) for the award.
You will recall Brown also won Best Male Actor in a Drama Series at the Globes earlier this year making him the first African-American male to do that as well.
Brown was interviewed backstage and was OVERWHELMED with emotion!
