Sterling K. Brown makes history at Golden Globes



Sterling K. Brown lights up NBC’s This Is Us, so his win for best actor in a drama Sunday night comes as no surprise. But that he became the first Black man to win the award in 75 years of Golden Globes made for a historic occasion.

“Throughout the majority of my career, I’ve benefited from color-blind casting,” he said after winning best lead actor in a TV drama. “Dan Fogelman, you wrote a role for a Black man, that can only be played by a Black man. And so what I appreciate so much about this thing is that I’m being 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.”
