Alec Baldwin Just Won the Emmy for Playing Trump on SNL

United Nations

If it wasn't for Trump, Baldwin wouldn't have won his most recent Emmy.

Stephen Colbert, the 53-year-old "Late Show" host, who helmed the show, pointed out that Emmy voters made a big mistake when they did not give Trump an award for "Celebrity Apprentice".

His Trump impersonation has caused the president to a couple of times tweet his anger at the show.

Alec Baldwin won the comedy supporting actor Emmy for his withering impersonations of Trump for "Saturday Night Live "on the Comcast Corp's NBC". Instead, he encouraged artists who make movies and television shows to continue creating, saying that their work is important. She said: "Being part of this season of Saturday Night Live is the most meaningful thing I will ever do".

Among comedy nominees, the political satire "Veep" is a favored again after two consecutive wins, and its star Julia Louis-Dreyfus is considered equally if not more likely to claim the best comedy actress trophy for the sixth time for her role.

"Most of all I have to thank Winston Churchill".

Kidman said the show "was created out of frustration because women weren't getting great roles".

Budget airline cancels dozens of flights a day
The news comes as a Norwegian newspaper reported that this year 140 pilots have left the Ryanair for low-priced rival Norwegian. Ryanair has assured passengers they will be offered a choice of refund or rerouting if their flight is cancelled.

"If he had won an Emmy, I bet he wouldn't have run for President", Colbert quipped.

"I suppose I should say, at long last, 'Mr. Turns out I was wrong", he said.

Still, those not-entirely-unexpected gags (Colbert joked about having the "courage" to lampoon Trump in a room whose politics tilt heavily left), and a genuinely surprising appearance by former White House press secretary Sean Spicer, were only the tip of the iceberg.

With his win, Glover becomes the first black person to nab an Emmy in the Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series category.

Bruce Miller won the first award for Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale", taking home the award for outstanding writing in a drama.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver picked up the Best Variety Talk Series, with the star thanking Oprah's seat filler and asking the band to play him off.
