I’m not gonna lie to y’all. I have about three minutes of patience for awards shows anymore because once they start getting into the snooze fest categories like Best Craft Service Chicken Nuggets I’m ready to jump ship like Jack and Rose. I wish I would have stuck around last night though because history was made once again when This Is Us actor Sterling K. Brown became the fourth African American actor to take home the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series. And how did they commemorate this momentous occasion? By rudely playing him off before he could finish his speech.
This Is Us is NBC’s hit family drama that takes place in two different time periods and occasionally features Milo Ventimiglia’s ass cheeks. I know for a fact that it’s a hit because my mom told me how much she loves it and she normally only gets into tv shows three years after the final season when she stumbles upon them on Netflix. On the show, Chrissy Metz plays the overweight twin sister of the hot Justin Hartley.
