There were only two black winners at the 2018 Golden Globes Sunday night, but there was no question if they’d represent us well.

The always incredible Sterling K. Brown made history as the first black man to win Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama for This Is Us. And unlike last year, the 41-year-old got to thank his wife without being cut off. Watch below.

Backstage Brown talked about what it meant to be the first black man to win in the category.

And then there was Oprah. The 63-year-old media maven received the legendary Cecil B. DeMille award, making her the first black woman to do so. And her speech, which touched on everything from Sidney Poitier and the importance of the late Recy Taylor‘s story to the sexual assault and #TimesUp movement, was absolutely everything. Watch below.

And her post-acceptance speech was just as memorable.
