[UPDATE:] Donald Glover also picked up a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a TV Series, Comedy or Musical for his role on FX’s Atlanta. “Thank you so much for giving me this,” he said during his acceptance speech. “I grew up in a house where magic wasn’t allowed, so everybody in here is magical to me. We are the one’s who kind of in a weird way tell a story or a lie to children so that they do stuff we never thought was possible.”
It was just one month ago that Atlanta actor Lakeith Stanfield bombarded the stage at the 2016 Critics Choice Awards after the popular FX series lost to HBO’s Silicon Valley. But on Sunday night, Stanfield had the chance to bombard the stage for a different reason.
During the 2017 Golden Globe Awards, Atlanta won the award for Best TV Series, Musical or Comedy.
The show’s star, director AND creator, Donald Glover, accepted the award on behalf of the team and not only thanked his entire cast and crew behind the series, but “black folks.”
“I really just want to thank Atlanta and black folks in Atlanta for being alive and doing amazing — and being amazing people. I couldn’t be here without Atlanta,” he said. “We didn’t think anybody was going to like this show, so we really appreciate it.”
Atlanta was initially picked up for just 10 episodes, but after two weeks of being on screens across America, the network picked the series up for a second season.
