Sterling K. Brown, aka lovable Randall from This Is Us, snagged his second Emmy win for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series at last night’s Emmy Awards. A much-deserved win indeed, but the sizable bear hug he received from onscreen TV dad Milo Ventimiglia deserves its own award.
The moment Brown was announced as the winner, Ventimiglia beelined it to Brown and gave him an enormous daddy bear hug. Even though Ventimiglia is technically younger than his TV son, it was clear he was one proud Papa Pearson.
Brown took the stage after their bromantic embrace and thanked his fellow Pearson-family actors and actresses before his mic was cut off and he returned to his seat.
Will he go for a big three win next year? We’ll have to wait and see.
