Donald Glover thanked hip-hop group Migos as he collected one of the two Golden Globe awards he won last night (January 8).
Glover – also known as rapper Childish Gambino – was named Best Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy for his performance in Atlanta. The show itself, which Glover created and co-executive produces, won the Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy prize.
While accepting the latter award, Glover told the audience at the Beverly Hills ceremony: “I really just want to thank Atlanta and all the black folks in Atlanta, like for real. Just for being alive and being amazing people. I couldn’t be here without Atlanta.”
He then added: “I really wanna thank the Migos, not for being in the show, but for making ‘Bad And Boujee’. That’s the best song ever.” Watch his full acceptance speech below.
