Although the Donald Glover–directed accolades lately have centered on his game-changer Childish Gambino album "Awaken, My Love!" But Sunday night, the 2017 Golden Globes twice recognized the new FX show Atlanta, which Glover famously created, executive produces, directs, writes for and stars in. (See the full Globes winners list here.)

First Atlanta grabbed Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy; Glover and the shows stars and creators hit the stage together. Watch Glover's acceptance speech:

This was the Migos Moment:

"I really wanna thank Atlanta, and all the black folks in Atlanta. Like, for real, like, just for being alive and just for doing just amazing, and being amazing people. I couldn't be here without Atlanta. And I really wanna thank the Migos, not for being in the show, but for making 'Bad and Boujee.' Like, that's the best song...ever."

Which Migos appreciated on Twitter.

Later Glover grabbed Best Actor in a TV Comedy. He closed out with a thank-you to the family he has continued to keep private since the birth of his first child in 2016: "I really want to say thank you to my son, and the mother of my son, for making me believe in people again, and things being possible."

Here's that one:

Next, watch Atlanta actor Bryan Tyree Henry tell Fuse about making the series, and catch an old-school clip where Donald Glover tell us why he's "hip-hop's dirty little secret":
