This Is Us fans know how well deserved his win was, which is probably why audience members actually booed when Sterling K. Brown was played off stage at the Emmys last night. The actor should have been given a little bit more time, but since he was cut off, he made the best of it by announcing what he would have said. And as expected, it’s worth listening to.

Brown won the award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series. As his powerful scenes brought a lot of Kleenex moments (which is to be expected, if you’re familiar with This Is Us) his full speech will have you crying happy tears.

In case you missed it, here’s what made the broadcast.

And here’s what he would have added to that.

Brown was able to complete his speech backstage in the press room.

Brown was up against a bunch of amazing actors, including his co-star Milo Ventimiglia — who seemed overjoyed over Brown’s win.

While timing definitely means a lot where awards shows are concerned, we hope that Sterling K. Brown will have more award-winning moments ahead of him to make up for this one.
