Ironically I just finished watching the first season of “Atlanta” an hour ago. Needless to say, it was an amazing show. Tonight, Atlanta took home two Golden Globe Awards including Best Television Series-Musical or Comedy and Best Television Performance by an Actor in a Television Series-Musical or Comedy which was won by Donald Glover.
In his acceptance speech he jokes about how he didn’t think that anyone would enjoy the show. How could you not? He also goes on to say that he would like to thank all the black people in Atlanta. Lol
Barry Jenkins’, Moonlight, also took home one award for Best Motion Picture-Drama. See the full list of categories that Moonlight was nominated for in a previous post, “Trevante Rhodes Shines at the Golden Globes While Moonlight Snags 6 Nominations! .”
Issa Rae’s, Insecure, was another one of my favorites in 2016. She was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy. She lost against Tracee Ellis Ross for her role in Black-ish. However, that isn’t a bad option to lose against.
