Sterling K Brown wins a Golden Globe and becomes the first black actor to win the best supporting actor for a drama series!  Backstage, Sterling joked that he's never been the first brother to do anything and that in high school he was only the fourth African-American student council president and the second black junior varsity basketball captain. "To finally be the first of something is really interesting because I never considered myself to be a trailblazer," he said. "I just try to stand in my truth all the time and if I come from a place of truth, that's all I can do. I can't worry about trying to be Jackie Robinson or anything else, but I'm honored."

 On stage, Brown, 41, not only thanked his wife and children, but also recognized "This Is Us" creator Dan Fogelman for making a role specifically for a black actor.

 "Throughout the majority of my career, I’ve benefited from colorblind casting, which means, 'Hey, let’s throw a brother in there.' That’s always really cool. But Dan Fogelman, you wrote a role for a black man that can only be played by a black man," he said, clutching his award.
