Donald Glover Makes History With Emmy Win
Glover took home the Emmys for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series for "Atlanta," a comedy series on FX. He was also nominated for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series.
His win for directing marks the first time a black director has ever won the comedy category in the 69-year history of the show. Glover's win also marks the first time a director has won for a show he acted in since Alan Alda won for " M*A*S*H" in 1977.
