Donald Glover makes an appearance as character Teddy Perkins at the Emmys 2018

Last night saw Donald Glover make an appearance as his (very odd looking) character Teddy Perkins, from his award-winning show Atlanta. The show was nominated for 16 awards.

One of those award nominations was for ‘Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series’, specifically for the episode where Teddy Perkins featured. Theodore “Teddy” Perkins comes into the episode that Darius (Lakeith Stanfield) meets for a free piano.

Although it’s unclear whether Glover, who played Perkins in the episode, is the actor in the audience. Later in the show, Glover appeared without makeup in the same seat as himself.

Glover and Co actually lost out on the award to The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Amy Sherman-Palladino.
