Sterling K. Brown can officially call himself an Emmy Award-winner.

Brown took home the Emmy Award on Sunday for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie for his portrayal of Chris Darden in The People v. O.J. Simpson. 

While accepting the award, presented by Terrence Howard, Brown made a hilarious Melania Trump plagiarism joke. “I was talking to Melania Trump this morning, I was asking her what should I do, what should I say,” he joked.

He continued, “Thank you to the Academy. A lot of you may not have known who I was and you checked the box anyway … And that makes me very very happy. To the communities that have supported up to this point in my career — There’s a lot of people in St. Louis making a lot of noise right now. Mama, I can hear you. I love you.”

An emotional Brown went on to thank his father, who the actor said “changed what people called me at age 16 so I could hear your name every day of my life. I love you, Daddy.”

This also marks the first Emmy nomination for the actor, who shared with HipHollywood back in June how thrilled he was to be recognized, but specifically, the series itself for its whopping 22 nods. “We knew that we had something special. Each week when we were in the makeup trailer and everybody got finished reading the script, we were really, really excited to talk about what was happening in this week’s episode.”

Brown was up against Jesse Plemons (Fargo), Bokeem Woodbine (Fargo), Hugh Laurie (The Night Manger), David Schwimmer (The People v. O.J. Simpson) and John Travolta (The People v. O.J. Simpson) for the coveted award.

Congrats to Brown.

Tiffany Haddish’s Hilarious Speech At Model Chanel Iman’s Wedding



Tiffany Haddish is one helluva lively and colorful human; so it’s not exactly shocking that she turned what would be considered a traditional wedding speech into a whelp … Haddish speech.

Just one night before hilariously taking the stage at the Oscars alongside Maya Rudolph, the Girls Trip star delivered an epic speech at the wedding of model, Chanel Iman, and New York Giant star, Sterling Shepard.

Although giving a seemingly witty speech, she also made an appoint to talk about how special her relationship was with Chanel, whom she met on the set of Mad Families. “I knew you could take care of any man you decided to take care of and I’m glad you decided to take care of that one cause I can see his soul,” Tiffany said, according to

The actress continued, “I looked into his eyeballs when you brought him to the comedy club. That’s a good man….[To Sterling] You better worship the ground she walk on cause she’s got a gangster ass bitch that got her back. Sorry, pastor!”

Haddish then went on to give some important advice. “Make sure y’all have fun together,” she said. “I ain’t that old, but I’m old, but I ain’t that old. But I’ve seen things. From my observation, the relationships that last the longest are the relationships where you have fun. You are going to have your ups and your downs, but find time to have fun.”

According to Chanel, the two grew close on set, mainly because they wound up sharing a trailer together. “During filming, I didn’t have a trailer so she was kind enough to share hers with me,” Chanel told “So for a month, we were sharing a trailer and going over lines together. We laughed, we cried, we bonded. She’s like a big sister to me.”

Chanel and Sterling exchanged vows in front of their close family and friends on March 3 at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
