Best: 'Atlanta,' Donald Glover Winning Big
Week to week, Donald Glover's Atlanta was the single most rewarding, surreal and surprising half hour of television, expanding the definition of what a TV comedy could be. (Three words: Black Justin Bieber. Five more words: Invisible car hit-and-run.) It introduced audiences to the amazing Keith Stanfield, Zazie Beetz and Brian Tyree Henry, and the series as a whole felt as urgent and alive as the music scene it depicted. So it was both a relief and a delight to see Glover, in that amazing brown velvet suit, get the accolades he deserves as the creator and star of this wholly original FX gem. We'd like a little bit of clarity on that "in my house, magic wasn't allowed" comment in his acceptance speech, but let's assume he's saving that explanation for a Season Two episode.
