Awards season isn't even in full swing yet, and already Sterling K. Brown is getting emotional.
On Wednesday morning, the 40-year-old actor was moved to tears upon learning that he was nominated for two SAG Awards. Brown is up for Best Male Actor in a TV Movie or Limited Series for playing Christopher Darden in The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story and Male Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Randall Pearson on This Is Us.
"Thank you SAG-AFTRA for recognizing my work twice in categories that aren't supporting a lead, but just actors," he said in a video posted to his Twitter. As his eyes started to well up with tears, Brown added, "I love what I do so much, and to be recognized by my peers in this way is very difficult for me to process right now."
The Emmy winner then starts full-on crying. "So, very, very humbling and very, very cool," he continues as tears start streaming down his face. "I love you, actors. I love spending time with you and getting to know you and I thank you for recognizing me."
This has been a big week for the TV star. On Sunday, he won a Critics' Choice Award for his role in American Crime Story, and on Monday, he was nominated for a Golden Globe. ET caught up with Brown ahead his big win over the weekend, and he recalled the moment that he first felt like he belonged in Hollywood.
"When I walked up on stage at the Emmys and when people stood up, it was a really sort of an emotional, overwhelming moment. It was like I had been accepted," he said. "Like, people I'd been watching for years and appreciated their work for years, like they appreciated me. That was a cool moment."
