Emmys saw winners, political jabs and Sean Spicer

Debra Rodriguez | 19 September, 2017, 00:29

The bit subtly slammed the Trump administration's claims about the size of the crowd at the inauguration in January.

Then there was host Stephen Colbert's string of one-liners about the man he considered the biggest television star of the past year, and former White House press secretary Sean Spicer's jaw-dropping cameo in Colbert's opening monologue.

Colbert exclaimed. And since he knows the president is most likely watching, he had a special message to Trump: "Hello, thank you for doing us". However you feel about the president, and you do feel about the president, you can't deny that every show was influenced by Donald Trump in some way.

Spicer wheeled onto the stage behind a mobile podium and joked about the Emmys having its biggest audience ever.

In that one sentence Spicer basically called both himself and the president liars. One viewer, Michael Ares, tweeted, "Stephen Colbert had Sean Spicer as a part of his act at the Emmys?"

But not everyone was upset.

"Saturday Night Live" won Sunday for best variety sketch series, the show's Kate McKinnon a.k.a. Hillary Clinton won as best supporting actress in a comedy and Alec Baldwin was tapped as best supporting actor in a comedy for his Trump impersonation.

Later Alec Baldwin, who won best Supporting Actor in a Comedy series for his ongoing role as Mr Trump, dedicated his award to the President.

"And we all know the Emmys mean a lot to Donald Trump", said Colbert, "because he was nominated multiple times for The Apprentice, but he never won".

'Why didn't you give him an Emmy?

To close it off, Colbert gave an explanation, "Unlike the presidency, Emmy's go to the victor of the popular vote". Fan favorite "Stranger Things" won just five of its 18 nominations, mostly in technical categories, and British royal series "The Crown" came away with three out of 16 nominations.

The Late Show host blended political and TV-related commentary throughout his wide-ranging set, with plenty of punchlines directed at Trump. Here are the 9 most incisive, hilarious jokes from Colbert's 2017 Emmys monologue. "Is there anyone who can tell me what the ratings are tonight?" "I want to thank Michelle, my partner, you love me even how insane I get".
