Since the days of Leonardo Da Vinci and other famous crossover geniuses, the idea of a renaissance man has existed, a jack of all trades, someone who’s not only good, but good at everything they do. As it stands, Donald glover is sure to be remembered as an individual who was good at whatever they did.
Everyone has something they’re good at, but fewer people have two things they’re good at, even fewer have three and so on…so that makes a renaissance man an uncommon occurrence, which is not to say there are very few people who excel at more than one thing…it’s just rare to see someone get substantial recognition for a lot of their different talents.
After pulling in two Emmys and breaking one of the toughest records in the entertainment industry, Donald Glover has yet again pushed the boundaries of being a jack of all trades. Glover is notably known for his TV appearances on “The Community”, stand up comedy, music, and more recently his comedy show “Atlanta”, which has now become the first comedy to win the directing series Emmy. Across the majority of major award shows comedies tend to place less than more competitive generous like action, drama, or documentary.
But in addition to the series directing Emmy, Glover also pulled away the award for comedy lead actor for his role in his show. Glover has had one of the craziest career trajectories in history…just two years ago Donald had two songs nominated for a Grammy. He’s proven to be a person who you can expect at every award show, not just as a public figure, but as a competitor. Writer, Actor, Musician, Comedian, Donald Glover is sure to be remembered as an everlasting household name.
