Glover teased his highly-anticipated new mixtape with Chance The Rapper during last night’s awards.
Atlanta‘s Donald Glover picked up two awards at the 2017 Emmys last night (September 17) – Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for his acting in Atlanta and Outstanding Directing in a Comedy Series for his work on ‘B.A.N.’.
‘B.A.N.’ is an experimental episode of Atlanta broadcast from the show’s alternate-universe Black Entertainment Television. Glover made history as the first black director to win an Emmy for work on a comedy series. He is also the first black man to win an Emmy for lead acting in a comedy series since 1985.
The actor and musician – who performs under the name Childish Gambino – used his acceptance speech to take a swipe at Donald Trump. “I want to thank Trump for making black people number one on the most oppressed list,” he said, adding: “he’s the reason I’m probably up here.”
Elsewhere, Stranger Things sadly failed to win a single award, despite having scored 18 nominations.
