Sterling K. Brown may be nominated for an Emmy, but he's content to yield the red carpet spotlight to his better half.

The This Is Us star, a frontrunner for the drama lead actor award at Sunday's Emmys, was throwing all the focus onto his wife, Ryan Michelle Bathe, leading up to the show. And it wasn't misplaced: Bathe, who has appeared on three episodes of This Is Us as Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca's (Mandy Moore) friend Yvette, looked stunning in a yellow gown.
