Personal Quote:

[on the standing ovation he received on being awarded an Emmy for "The People vs O.J. Simpson : American Crime Story"] It feels like a strange thing to say, but you try to reap what you sow, and I try to put good vibes out into the world - and I thought they all came flooding back to me at that one time.

Trivia:

Cried when he was nominated for two Screen Actors Guild Awards in the same year. Also cried when he won two Screen Actors Guild Awards in one year. He made history as the first African-American man to win for Best Actor in a Drama Series. See more »
