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.

Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
