Official Winner’s List from the 74th Golden Globe Awards

Donald Glover’s Atlanta Wins BIG!

Everyone tuned into the first major award show of the season, the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards.  Donald Glover, and his hit TV show on FX "Atlanta" stole the night with wins in Best Actor and TV series in the Comedy & Musical categories.  What has everyone talking is his acceptance speech though, is when he goes on to thank the city of Atlanta, the black folks in it, and rap trio The Migos.

“I just really want to thank Atlanta and all the black folks in Atlanta. For real. Just for being alive and doing amazing [things] and being amazing people. I couldn’t be here without Atlanta. And I really want to thank the Migos—not for being in the show—but for making ‘Bad and Boujee.’ Like that’s the best song ever.” He calls them “The Beatles of this generation” and that “they don’t get a lot of respect.”

Unfortunately, Issa and the crew from "Insecure" didn't take home any Golden Globes, but it is still one of my favorite shows to hit TV in a very long time.  Viola Davis also won for her supporting role in the hit stage play turned movie "Fences," and Tracee Ellis Ross won for "Black-ish," making her the first black actress to win in this category since Debbie Allen took home the trophy for Fame, in 1982.  She dedicated her Golden Globe to women of colour saying... "This is for all the women of colour and colourful people whose stories, ideas, and thoughts are not always considered worthy and valid and important. But I want you to know that I see you. We see you," she said on stage.
