"This is incredible," star and producer Donald Glover said during his acceptance speech. He later added, " ... I really want to thank Atlanta, and all the black folks in Atlanta, for real. Just for being alive and doing just amazing and being amazing people. I couldn't be here without Atlanta."
The Best Comedy Series category featured some critical darlings like Transparent and Black-ish. And it included Veep, the two-time Emmy winner for Outstanding Comedy series. The political satire stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as America's Vice President and later President.
But the Golden Globes often opt for a less conventional pick, like last year's winner, Mozart In The Jungle. The Amazon series tells the story of a fictional symphony in New York.
Still, Mozart wasn't the favorite to repeat at the Golden Globes, in part because repeats in this category are so rare. According to TheWrap, 13 different shows have won Best Comedy at the Globes since 2000. And Glee, which won in 2009 and 2010, is the only series to win two years in a row.
That is why many predicted Atlanta would take home the Golden Globe in 2017. The FX comedy stars Glover and Brian Tyree Henry as two cousins trying to make it in the rap industry. Glover also won the Best Actor in a Television Series - Comedy Or Musical later in the evening.

"The thing that I’m most proud of with this show is that we got away with being honest," Glover previously said. "The things that people are most attracted to online are the things that are the realest, the most honest. We tried to do that on the show because I feel like that’s a part of being black that people don’t see. I’m trying to make people feel black."
