Best: Sterling K. Brown's Historic Win

It was refreshing to see history made when the supremely talented This Is Us star became the first black man to take home the best actor statue for a TV drama. Brown, who plays the adopted son of a white family, brings a certain gravitas to NBC’s notorious weepfest and has helped the series tackle a range of current, often fraught topics.
