At the 2017 Golden Globe Awards, Donald Glover's new comedy series Atlanta was up for Best TV Series for a comedy or musical against Blackish, Mozart in the Jungle, Transparent, and Veep.


When the announcement was made that Atlanta took the honor, Donald Glover, the cast, and the team behind the show came on stage with beaming smiles.
