Donald Glover earned this one.

On Sunday night, the Atlanta star continued his incredible recent run by winning the Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy. Earlier in the evening, Atlanta also won the trophy for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy.

Glover thanked the Atlanta team in his acceptance speech, where he talked about learning that “magic is from people.” “My dad used to tell me, every day, ‘You can do anything you want,’ and I remember thinking as a kid in first grade, like, ‘You’re lying to me,'” he said. “Now, I do stuff, and he’s like, ‘I didn’t think that was possible.'”

He concluded his speech by thanking his son and the mother of his son “for making me believe in people again and things being possible.”

While Glover won for his role as Earnest “Earn” Marks, the multi-talented performer did it all on FX’s Atlanta, where he served as star, creator, writer, director, and music supervisor. Last month, he also took home Best Actor in a Comedy Series honors at the Critics’ Choice Awards.

It has been quite the last few months for the former Community star. In addition to the success of Atlanta, Glover has been cast as young Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Han Solo film and released his latest album under his stage name, Childish Gambino.

To win the award, Glover beat out Black-ish star Anthony Anderson, Mozart in the Jungle‘s Gael García Bernal, Graves‘ Nick Nolte, and Transparent‘s Jeffrey Tambor.
