The actor won for his performance on NBC's hit drama This Is Us.

In his speech, Brown noted what he appreciates most about his role on This Is Us: "I'm being seen for who I am and appreciated for who I am, and it makes it that much more difficult to dismiss me or anyone who looks like me."

And Brown's sterling (not sorry) résumé keeps expanding. He has multiple upcoming projects, including his role in the highly anticipated Black Panther film.

Watch Brown's full acceptance speech below.
