The “Emmys” last night celebrated the best in television . . . and had a lot of Trump-BASHING. It started with host Stephen Colbert’s opening musical song and monologue . . .
Which included an actual, live appearance by former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. He rolled out with his podium to tell us this would be the most-watched “Emmy” broadcast, PERIOD.
Alec Baldwin won Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for playing Trump on “SNL”.
In his acceptance speech, he said, “I suppose I should say: At long last, Mr. President, here is your Emmy.”
That was a callback to Colbert’s monologue, where he played a clip of Trump from one of the presidential debates, complaining about never winning an Emmy for “The Apprentice”.
There was diversity all over the place, including the first black woman to win for comedy writing, Lena Waithe who wrote an episode for comedian Aziz Ansari’s show ‘Master Of None’.
Sterling K. Brown from “This Is Us” ran into a little trouble when he accepted his award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama. They started playing him off about two minutes into his speech, and he wasn’t having it.
He finished his thoughts backstage. It included high praise for the writers, a lot of love for the show’s creator, and some touching words for his wife and sons.
