Jharrel Jerome & Radoyka Jerome
The 21-year-old’s emotional speech for his When They See Us win paid tribute to the Exonerated Five and many of his inspirations, but also, sweetly, to his date for the evening, mom Radoyka. ““I feel like I should just be in the Bronx right now, chilling, waiting for my mom’s cooking or something,” he began, later adding, “My beautiful mother. Damn. I couldn’t do it without her.”

The This Is Us star and outstanding lead actor in a drama series nominee melted our hearts when he shared the biggest life lesson he learned from his parents: “lead with love.”
