Brown then took the moment to finish his acceptance speech backstage with ET, looking right into the camera and delivering the rest of his kudos.
“Let me thank Dan Fogelman for bringing a show into the world that tries to make it a little bit better,” Brown began his impromptu speech. “Instead of trying to make America great again, we're trying to make it the best that it's ever been, so thank you, Dan Fogelman for doing that.”
“My wife, you are unsung in everything that you do for our family, so it is my joy to sing your praises. Ryan Michelle Bathe, you are the bomb and you gave me two of the most beautiful human beings to ever grace this planet,” the 41-year-old continued, before sweetly gushing over his two sons. “Andrew Jason Sterling Brown, Amari Michael Christian Brown, your daddy loves you. I'll see you real soon.”
Brown also reflected on now being a multiple Emmy winner and continuing to have a seat at the table, though he was “hopeful” for his TV sister, Chrissy Metz, to take home an Emmy. (The Handmaid’s Tale starAnn Dowd won instead.)
