Donald Glover made history on Sunday night by becoming the first African American man to ever win an Emmy for directing a comedy series. For his work on Atlanta, he also took home an award for outstanding lead actor in a comedy series, as well as nominated in the writing department as well.
Donald expressed his sincere thanks at the award show.
“Yo, I’m so happy, wow. Thank you guys so much, this is nuts. I want to thank my mom and dad, the city of Atlanta, FX. I want to thank Michelle, my partner, you love me no matter what. I want to thank my son, [and] my unborn son — we’re listening to Stevie [Wonder] tonight!”
For best actor, Donald was up against Anthony Anderson for Black-ish, Aziz Ansari for Master of None, Zach Galifianakis for Baskets, William H. Macy for Shameless, and Jeffrey Tambor for Transparent. Jeffrey previously won three years in a row for the category.
