The men of The People vs OJ Simpson came colour-coordinated to the Critics’ Choice Awards last night. Courtney B Vance and Sterling K Brown were both in burgundy suits. And they both won. Ryan Murphy and John Travolta also wore burgundy. And The People vs OJ Simpson won the category. Not surprisingly. The People vs OJ Simpson was also heavily nominated at the Golden Globes this morning, as Courtney, Sterling, and Sarah Paulson receiving nominations – and John Travolta too! At this point, there is almost no way the series won’t be running the same victory lap in January, both at the Globes and the SAGs.
A note on Sterling K Brown. He came on The Social when I was on holiday last month. I’m sad I missed him because he was amazing. Like the loveliest guy ever. The most amazing, fun human being ever. Afterwards they told me he might be the best guest we’ve ever had, certainly in terms of being a personal favourite, both on and off camera. Sterling K Brown. Be a fan!
