Sunday night became a celebration of both Atlanta and "Bad and Boujee" on social media.
Award shows don't usually get things right, so when they do, it's an incredible surprise. On Sunday night's Golden Globes, FX series Atlanta, which has been greeted with critical acclaim, but was not expected to take home awards, pulled through in both the Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy and Best Actor In A TV Series - Musical or Comedy categories, and its loyal fanbase was ready to celebrate on Twitter.
Though the win alone would have give social media a lot to talk about, Glover's speech was also a topic conversation. Glover sincerely thanked the "Black folks in Atlanta ... for just being alive and being amazing people," as well as shouting out ATL trio Migos and their single "Bad and Boujee," which has inspired countless memes and currently sits at #2 on the Hot 100. Later that night he'd call them "the Beatles of this Generation," and claimed that there's "no better song to have sex to" than "Bad and Boujee."
Read some of Twitter's reactions to the very good news below. Take a tour through Atlanta's eclectic soundtrack (which, of course, includes Migos) here.

I can not believe Donald glover had the AUDACITY to compare Migos to the Beatles. Migos are lightyears ahead of them. Just disrespectful— ℑose nunez (@nastynvnez) January 9, 2017
In a week or so when Bad and Boujee does hit #1 don't play like the Migos didn't earn that.— Craig Bro Dude (@CraigSJ) January 9, 2017
The only part of the golden globes I saw was that lady asking Donald Glover about MY-goes and personally that's all I needed— yc (@yc) January 9, 2017
