Donald Glover Wins Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series at the 2017 Primetime Emmys [WATCH]

Donald Glover won the Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards. In accepting the award, the Atlanta actor sarcastically thanked President Donald Trump.

“I want to thank Trump for making black people No. 1 on the most oppressed list,” Glover said. “He’s the reason I’m probably up here.”

Atlanta debuted on FX last fall to widespread critical acclaim. On the series, Glover plays Urn Marks, a struggling father who is working to find some direction in his life by managing his cousin, Paperboi, an aspiring rapper.

Earlier in the evening, Glover also won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series. He became the first African American to win an Emmy in the category. Dave Chappelle presented Glover with his award.

“I skipped rehearsal,” Chappelle cracked, while presenting alongside Melissa McCarthy. “I’m gonna read this teleprompter–shout-out to D.C. public schools.”
