Sunday night at the Critics Choice Awards, Donald Glover won Best Actor in a comedy for his work on his show Atlanta.

The show was also up for Best Comedy Series, but it lost out to Silicon Valley, to which LaKeith Stanfield (who plays Darius on Atlanta) had a couple words for. He jokingly went up and accepted the award on behalf of the people who worked on Silicon Valley.

Donald Glover was also nominated for Best Actor in a comedy series for the Golden Globes, who announced their nominees on Monday. Atlanta has also been nominated for the Best Comedy Series at the award show, too.

It was also announced Sunday Glover’s musical persona Childish Gambino sold over 100,000 copies of his new album, Awaken, My Love!, in its first week. That’s a helluva week.
