Donald Glover nabbed the Golden Globe for best actor in a TV series, musical or comedy.

The 33-year-old actor, comedian and rapper took home the coveted award at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards for his role in Atlanta — his second award of the night.

“I grew up in a house where magic wasn’t allowed. So everybody in here is like magic to me,” Glover said of the room full of A-listers.

“Every time I saw a movie or Disney movies or heard your voices or saw you, I was like, ‘Oh, magic is from people. We’re the ones who kind of, in a weird way, tell a story or a lie to children so they do stuff that we never thought was possible.’ ”

Earlier in the evening, Atlanta won the award for best TV series, comedy or musical. Glover took to the stage with the cast then and gave a moving speech.

“I really just want to thank … Atlanta, and all the black folks in Atlanta,” he said.

“For real, just for being alive and being amazing people. Thanks so much for this, we really appreciate. We didn’t think anybody was going to like this show.”
