Laverne Cox has had an amazing year and made amazing strides for the transgender community, but the year is not yet over and she still has a couple of surprises up her sleeve.

The “Orange Is the New Black” star has teamed up with MTV and Logo for “Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word,” an hour long documentary that follows the lives of transgender youth living in America. For her documentary, Laverne’s cameras followed seven people between the ages of 12 and 24 from New Orleans, New York, and Baltimore showing their trails and tribulations.

According to MTV, Cox will walk, “viewers through the difficulties of coming out, how race plays into the equation, bullying, violence and familial and social support.” An hour-long “Trans Forum,” hosted by Cox and SuChin Pak will follow the documentary in which audience members and the social media community can ask questions. This is all part of MTV’s “Look Different” campaign, an initiative to identify and fight biases, misconceptions, and break down barriers.

“Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word” premiere on October 17th at 7 p.m. ET.

It was a big night for Sterling K. Brown who made history after becoming the first Black actor to win the category for Outstanding Performance by a Male in a Drama Series. Brown not only took home the award for his role on NBC’s This Is Us, but he also received a second SAG award for Best Ensemble.

Morgan Freeman was the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award, making a seemingly short and awkward speech. While receiving the honor, he called out an audience member for talking.

 “Hey … I’m talking to you. Yeah, hey,” the 80-year-old said. “Okay, well you just stand out to me. That’s all.” Freeman then explained, “These moments in one’s life usually will call for an entire litany of thank yous.”

And we’ve said it before and we will say it again, Olivia Munn and Niecy Nash need their own show. The pair provided comedic relief yet again while announcing the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male in a Drama Series.

When discussing who gets to announce the winner, Nash explained she gets to say Sterling’s name if he when’s because “he’s Black.” She did however explain Munn “can say anyone who is Asian who is nominated.”
