Donald Glover and ‘Atlanta’ Score Big Emmy Nominations
Wonderful things keep happening for Donald Glover, because his FX TV show, Atlanta, just scored two huge Emmy nominations.
According to Forbes, Glover was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, along with Anthony Anderson (Black-ish), Aziz Ansari (Master of None), Zach Galifianakis (Baskets), William H. Macy (Shameless) and Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent).
Atlanta is also up for Outstanding Comedy Series, next to Black-ish, Modern Family, Master of None, Veep, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Silicon Valley.
Once again, Glover’s career couldn’t be hotter. Back in May, it was announced that his song “Redbone” went platinum, plus, he’s developing a new animated Deadpool series. In addition, he’ll be teaming up with Dave Chappelle at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall on August 19 for an epic concert, and all of this is happening after the rapper and actor announced that he was dropping his Childish Gambino moniker.
So how will Glover do at the 69th Emmy Awards? You can find out on September 17 when it airs live.
