TRAILBLAZER: Sterling K. Brown makes Black history at Golden Globes

Sterling K. Brown Emphasizes the Importance of His Black Role on This Is Us

'This Is Us' Star Sterling K. Brown Makes History With Golden Globe TV Drama Actor Win

In his interview with The Hollywood Reporter for the Golden Globes' aftershow, the actor also revealed that fans will soon watch an intense, long scene where several characters are involved. "I won't say too much more about it, but there's only eight episodes, so it will happen soon".

"I feel a tremendous sense of pride", beamed This Is Us actor Sterling K. Brown upon being notified in the Golden Globes press room tonight that he made history, becoming the first black actor to win the TV lead actor drama category. He was previously nominated a year ago for Best Supporting Actor for his stellar performance in The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story.

It seems the 41-year-old can't stop setting records after he achieved a similar milestone last year when he became the first black man in 19 years to win Outstanding Lead Actor in a drama series for his role as Randall Pearson in the hit drama.

But here's what gives the ruling some weight: Companies with over 25 employees that don't follow through will be fined . Iceland has become the first country to make it illegal for men to earn more than women at work.

Brown, who plays Randall Pearson on NBC's tear-jerking This Is Us, thanked his wife, Ryan Michelle Bathe, and their children and gave a special shout-out to the show's creator and writer, Dan Fogelman, during his moving acceptance speech. "I also want to thank Dan Fogelman. I will take you to school in the morning", he said and added, "I promise".

"This Is Us" season 2 airs every Tuesday, at 9 p.m. EST on NBC. "Just being at base camp, and you see about 24 trailers lined up, one after the other, and each, slowly but surely, a black face comes out of each one of them. That makes it that much more hard to dismiss me or dismiss anyone who looks like me".

There's a difference between a black actor being cast in a role, and a black actor being cast in a role written for a black man. Like that could only be played by a black man.
