Brown scored nominations for Drama Actor (Randall Pearson on This Is Us) and Male Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries (Christopher Darden on The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story), and as you’ll see in the video below, he couldn’t be more grateful:
“Thank you, SAG-AFTRA, for recognizing my work twice in categories that aren’t supporting and lead, but just actors,” he says in the video, tears welling up in his eyes. “I love what I do so much, and to be recognized by my peers in this way is very difficult for me to process right now, but also very very humbling and very very cool. I love you, actors. I love spending time with you and getting to know you, and I thank you for recognizing me.”
