The 2018 Emmy nominations are in and — unsurprisingly — Donald Glover’s Atlanta racked up several nominations in the comedy category.
For the second year in a row, the critically acclaimed show is up for Outstanding Comedy Series, while Glover is nominated in the Outstanding Writing In A Comedy Series category for two episodes, “Alligator Man” and “Barbershop.”
Both Glover and Hiro Murai nabbed nominations In the Outstanding Directing In A Comedy Series category as well.

In addition to Glover, Brian Tyree Henry is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor for his role as Paper Boi, Zazie Beetz is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress for her role as Van and Katt Williams is nominated for his guest role as Willy in the ”Alligator Man” episode.
At last year’s ceremony, Glover took home an award for Outstanding Lead Actor In A Comedy Series and Outstanding Directing In A Comedy Series — the first time the award was given to an African-American director.
Beyond Atlanta, Glover is also up for an Outstanding Guest Actor award for his SNL hosting, which was the launchpad for his massive single ”This Is America.”
