Knocking the "cute factor" out of the park, former STLer Sterling K. Brown took to Twitter to acknowledge his latest Emmy nomination.

Brown got the nod in the lead actor category for his turn as Randall Pearson in the NBC series "This Is Us."

In a video posted Tuesday, Brown tells his 3-year-old son, Amaré, that "I got nominated for an Emmy, dude" — which the little guy repeats as "enemy."

"Not enemy; Emmy. The Emmys are a good thing," explained Brown, who grew up in Olivette and graduated in 1994 from MICDS.

Brown is no stranger to the award. He won in 2016 for the miniseries "American Crime Story," and in 2017 for "This Is Us."
