DONNY GLOVER THANKS MIGOS AFTER ATLANTA WINS ITS 1ST EVER GOLDEN GLOBE AWARD.🎥🏆🙏🏽
Donald Glover was awarded his first Golden Globe award Sunday in the category of Best Television Series Musical or Comedy for his FX comedy-drama series Atlanta. The 33-year-old actor/rapper also won the Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy.
The freshman show, slated to return for a 2nd season, beat out veteran series Transparent, Black-ish, Veep and Mozart in the Jungle.
During his acceptance speech, the Georgia-born artist gave a gracious thanks to Migos for nothing more than giving the world “Bad and Boujee.” 🙏🏽😂. “I’d like to thank the Migos — not for being on the show, but for making ‘Bad and Boujee.’ Like, that’s the best song … ever,” he said.
Quavo acknowledged the gratitude and tweeted a clip of Childish Gambino’s acceptance speech praising them for the song.
The series has been an award-winning and nominated beast so far🏆🦁. Atlanta won the award for Top 10 Television Programs at the AFI in December and is also nominated for four NAACP Image Awards, a People’s Choice Award nod for Favourite Cable TV Comedy as well as nominations for the Producers Guild of America Awards and Writers Guild of America Awards.
The show, created by Glover himself, has gotten mad praise since its debut, garnering a Metacritic score of 91 the morning after it aired.
