Donald Glover continues his entertainment dominance with an Emmy for Best Director in a Comedy Series for his show ‘Atlanta.’ Glover thanked his parents, the writers of the show, but most importantly his best friend Hiro Murai, who he claims taught him everything he knows about directing. ‘Atlanta’ is nominated for 4 Emmys total. Earlier this year, Atlanta won a Golden Globe and a Critics’ Choice Award. This is the first time a black director has won an Emmy in this category.
Donald Glover also does music under the moniker “Childish Gambino”. Earlier this year he released the album “Awaken, My Love!” to massive critical and commercial success. The lead single off the album “Redbone” has been riding the charts for months.
