HOW STERLING MADE HISTORY
Actor Sterling K. Brown made history after he became one of the first actors to be nominated for his work in a drama as well as a comedy series in the same year.
In 2017, Brown won an Emmy for his role as Randall in "This Is Us."
In an Instagram video, Brown shared the happy news with his fans and shared how excited he is to be representing "This Is Us" and "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel."
The actor, who appeared in the video with a bandaid on, first explained why he had it. Apparently, it had something to do with his 5-year-old kid.
SUCCESS DOES NOT COME EASY
Brown went on to reveal that he had been nominated for two Emmys this year. The happiness was evident on his face as he shared how honored he was to have been nominated twice. He said:
"Truly, truly honored. Thank you to the Television Academy for recognizing my work in both 'This Is Us' and 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.'"
In 2017, Brown won an Emmy for his role as Randall in "This Is Us" in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series category. A year later, he bagged a Golden Globe Award for the same.
In an interview with "Good Housekeeping," the actor admitted that he has often placed a great deal of pressure on himself to meet expectations.
According to Brown, many of his family members have influenced his acting performances and helped him represent mental health issues including anxiety.
Other actors who were nominated for the coveted award include Jennifer Aniston, Zendaya, Robin Thede, Meryl Streep, and Kerry Washington.
