For the most part, the lumping of musicals with comedy gave way to the rightfully beloved La La Land sweeping up several awards at last night’s Golden Globes.
Still, Donald Glover’s dramedy set in the back-drop of Atlanta’s hip hop scene Atlanta took home Best Musical or Comedy TV series as well as a statue for Glover himself. In case you forgot, Atlanta is only on its freshman season.
FX has been really on a streak this year and is standing toe-to-toe with premium cable and streaming networks in critical acclaim. We’ll just have to see what the rest of the awards season brings.
The rest of the comedy winners for The Golden Globes this year are:
Atlanta-Best Musical or Comedy TV Series
Donald Glover, Atlanta-Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy TV Series
Tracee Ellis Ross, black-ish-Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy TV Series
Zootopia-Best Animated Feature Film
