Sterling K. Brown on Emmys Speech Being Cut Short: 'Not Everybody Can Be Pretty Australian White Women'

Sterling K. Brown is shading the Emmys for letting Nicole Kidman‘s speech go long but cutting his short.

“Look, man, not everybody can be pretty Australian white women who have won Oscars in the past,” the This Is Us actor said on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. This statement got quite the reaction from the audience. “Not that I’m blaming her. It’s not her fault.”

Stephen also added that he tried to stop the Emmys from cutting him off, but he was too late.

    lol. I just can’t… white people are to blame for everything even time for speeches.

    The man made history that night & his speech was cut short. Hers wasn’t. That’s noteworthy. Stop being in denial.

  • Silly People

    Oh please. If they let Nicole Kidman go on longer than normal, it’s because she is a hugely famous Oscar winner. Not because she is white.

    he was so cool until this. what a moron. he’s bitter and racist

  • Marianne

    True. The fact that shes a big A-lister is probably more of the reason why she was allowed to give a speech without being cut off. But it still is seriously unfair. I can totally imagine how much that would suck that you finally have this shining moment and for it to be cut short.

  • Silly People

    I agree. I think cutting people off is very rude. And I think Nicole’s speech was also way too long but I don’t think it was about race. It’s her Hollywood status plus she was talking about domestic violence, so there is no way she would be cut off.
