“This Is Us” star Sterling K. Brown took home the award for best actor in a drama television series at the Golden Globes on Sunday, and in the process, gave a shout-out to the creator of the NBC series, Dan Fogelman, for writing an inclusive role. His win marks the first time an African-American actor has won in the category.
“You wrote a role for a black man, that could only be played by a black man,” he said to Fogelman, who was in the audience. “And so, what I appreciate so much about this is that I’m being seen for who I am, and being appreciated for who I am. And it makes it that much more difficult to dismiss me or dismiss anybody who looks like me. So thank you, Dan.”
Brown’s history-making moment comes after he made history by becoming the first black actor in two decades to win an Emmy for best actor in a drama series for the same role as Randall Pearson, a black child who’s adopted by the Pearsons, who are white.
The This Is Us star beat out Jason Bateman (Ozark), Freddie Highmore (The Good Doctor), Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul) and Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan).
Brown accepted his much-deserved Golden Globe with a powerful acceptance speech at the 2018 Golden Globes for Best Actor in a TV Drama—itself history-making.
It was his first Golden Globe win, and the first time Brown was nominated at the awards for “This Is Us.” Brown was previously nominated at last year’s Globes for The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.

Mariah Carey Tweets: Leave Your Christmas Tree Up Until July 4th

While some people are preparing to pull the box out of the attic or storage to pack away the decorations Mariah Carey known as “The Queen of Christmas” has other plans. Wearing her crown while seated on her Christmas throne of joy and merriment, Carey is nowhere near ready to bid adieu or close the 2017 chapter to her favorite time of the year.
Fans who follow Mariah Carey may recall her putting up the Christmas tree at the beginning of October. Putting a pause on ending Christmas, Mariah is now advocating leaving the Christmas tree up until July.
How did we arrive at this story? Ryan Seacrest—host of Live with Kelly and Ryan—tweeted a question to his followers regarding the protocol for taking down a Christmas tree and its decorations.
Typically most people wait until after the New Year to start packing away the decorations. Though on more than one occasion the tree in this writer’s home did not come down until February. Hey—don’t judge the delay—it was a busy time.
For some people perhaps the most challenging part of closing out the holidays is taking down the beloved Christmas tree and beautiful decorations. The big question that plagues the minds of those who procrastinate each year on taking down the Christmas tree is: When is the right time or appropriate time to get rid of the Christmas tree?
Apparently the burning question on Ryan Seacrest’s mind on Dec. 27th prompted pop icon Mariah Carey to respond. Carey likely put smiles on the face of fellow Christmas revelers when she declared that the tree should stay up until July 4th.
“Dahhling! Not till July 4th!” she wrote in response to Seacrest’s tweet.
No stranger to her love for Christmas during the holiday season—Carey cemented her place as the holiday queen with her classic “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” which is the top-selling digital holiday song of all time.
Check out the tweets.
