Sterling K. Brown has just made history, becoming the first black actor to win the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama.

Taking home the gong for his role in NBC’s breakout drama of the 2016-2017 season, This Is Us, Brown gave an inspirational speech at the award ceremony on Sunday.

“What a blessing it is to do what you love for a living,” he said. “What an honor it is to be recognized by your peers for a job well done. This room is a source of endless inspiration for me. I love all of y’all. People call us weird and strange; the truth of the matter is everybody’s weird and strange, and we just embrace ourselves for who we are.”

Brown also used his speech for very sweet individual shoutouts, starting with his wife. “I love actors so much, I decided to marry one. Ryan Michelle Bathe, you’re the best scene partner a brother has ever had. To my glorious cast of This Is Us, you feed me day in day out. You raise the bar. To my white family, which thankfully is nothing like the family from Get Out, I love you. To my TV wife Susan Kelechi Watson, let’s keep on repping for the people.”

This isn’t the first time Brown has made history with this role since the show’s 2016 beginnings. Just a few weeks ago, Brown became the first black actor to win a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a TV Series: Drama. And in 2017, he took out the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series — the first black actor to do so since 1998 (that was Andre Braugher).

Big celebrations are in order for Brown, while more tear-jerking moments are in store for the rest of us catching up on This Is Us.

Once Upon a Time in America divides audiences on its historical context

This story contains spoilers.

Based on the trailer and cheesy posters, it’s clear that Quentin Tarantino’s new film, Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood, is set in 1969 Los Angeles and deals with the Manson Family murders. The fact that Sharon Tate (played by Margot Robbie) is a main character in the film is a big enough hint that Tarantino is going to end on the tragic events that led to her death while 8 months pregnant. Tate’s murder (as well as the murders of her friends, who were at her home at the time) became a national story and is well known by most people with even a vague knowledge of Charles Manson, who directed leaders of his cult to kill everyone in Tate’s home on the infamous Cielo Drive.
