Donald Glovers Golden Globes for Atlanta won for Best TV Series, Comedy/Musical at the Golden Globes, as it should have. The absurdist FX series created by and starring Donald Glover has featured some of the best TV performances and moments of 2016 and gathered both critical praise and avid fans. A velvet-suited Glover delivered quite the speech when accepting the award alongside the cast and creative team.
In his speech he was gracious enough to praise Migos a popular rap group and made some pretty bold comparisons
“I think that they’re the Beatles of this generation and they don’t get a lot of respect, I think, outside of Atlanta,” Glover said backstage. “Not that they don’t get respect, but there’s a generation, sort of like the YouTube generation that I kind of came up with. There’s a generation of kids that are growing up on something that’s completely separate from a whole group of people.”
