Congratulations are in order for Sterling K. Brown!
He scored the victory amid a talented batch of well-known actors including John Travolta (The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story), David Schwimmer (The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story), Hugh Laurie (The Night Manager), Jesse Plemons (Fargo), and Bokeem Woodbine (Fargo).
In fact, the Missouri native admitted that he probably wasn’t one of the more famous nominees, saying:
“A lot of you may not have known who I was, but you checked the box anyway and that makes me very happy.”
The actor gave a moving, heartfelt speech that you can watch (above)!
