Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino just made history as the first black person to win an Emmy for directing for a comedy. Glover is also the first director to win for a show he acted in.
“This really beyonds to Hiro Murai,” Donald said, thanking his co-director. “He taught me everything about directing. He had the eye for this show and he’s just amazing. I really want to give this to Hiro and just say ‘I love you and thank you for being my best friend.’”
Donald made his directorial debut on the sixth episode of Atlanta and also directed the seventh episode.
