Donald Glover Makes History at the 2017 Emmy’s
Los Angeles, CA – The 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards took place on Sunday night (September 17) at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles.
The ceremony, presented by television show host Stephen Colbert, saw a number of luminaries from the world of television go down in the history books.
Donald Glover – known musically as Childish Gambino – took home two awards for his show Atlanta. The first accolade won by Gambino was for Outstanding Directing In a Comedy Series, making him the first black person to win the award in the ceremony’s history. Glover also nabbed the award for Outstanding Lead Actor In a Comedy Series.
“I want to thank Trump for making black people number one on the most oppressed list,” Glover said while accepting his second award of the night. “He’s probably the only reason I’m up here.”
