Regé-Jean filmed his acceptance speech from what appeared to be a bedroom, with a series of blue and gray pillows behind him.

He was casually dressed in a white T-shirt with a navy blue jacket on top.

“Wow, thank you for such a remarkably heavy award,” he said after someone threw the trophy aside at him.

“It has been a remarkable year for everyone,” he said. “ I know everyone who works on Bridgerton has worked incredibly hard to give audiences stories and shows that we could just feel good about, and not just because it’s incredibly valuable – it’s so important. [and] this was for me last year. We wanted everyone to know he deserved love stories. ”

Regé-Jean’s performance came with the period drama Bridgerton, which is based on Julia Quinn’s romance series.

The first season begins in Regency-era London in 1813, when Daphne Bridgerton (Dynevor) is looking for a suitor.

She teams up with Régé-Jean’s character Simon Bassett, Duke of Hastings, to allow him to remain celibate while marrying her to an eligible suitor, though their feelings for each other threaten to get in the way. .

The show stars several black actors and imagines an alternative Britain in which Queen Charlotte is black, inspired by unfounded claims that the Queen had African features.

Although he has been a fan favorite, the actor’s time on the show if it’s over, as subsequent seasons will focus on a new character. The show has already been renewed with a fourth season.
