Not to be outshined by Darius crashing the stage earlier in the night.
Glover’s win got the entire “Atlanta” squad in attendance incredibly riled up, and the team needed this uplift. Earlier in the night, “Atlanta” lost Best Comedy Series to “Silicon Valley,” sparking a stage crash from Lakeith Stanfield AKA Darius. Stanfield got to the mic before the actual winner could, hilariously thanking the critics for honouring his show:
“I wanna thank everybody for honouring us in this way. We worked very hard on ‘Silicon Valley’ and here we are. Thank you.”
Those on stage were confused, but the people cheering in the audience knew what was up.
