Alec Baldwin Just Won the Emmy for Playing Trump on SNL

Alec Baldwin Just Won the Emmy for Playing Trump on SNL

Alec Baldwin is once again an Emmy victor - and he has President Donald Trump to thank.

The tone of the award show was set from host Stephen Colbert's opening monologue, in which he noted, "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".

At least so it seemed as Hollywood struck back last night at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards. "This year felt different, it felt more important, like we were holding people accountable, doing some healing, soothing some frayed nerves, and for that reason I am even more proud to be associated with what Lorne has done".

Spicer, who resigned in July, was a surprise guest at Sunday's Emmys, appearing with his podium to declare that the Emmys telecast would attract the largest audience ever. When he hosted the show for a record 17th time in February, it got a bigger rating than when Trump hosted in November 2015.

Holding the award Baldwin said, "At long last Mr. President, here is your Emmy". "They are very frustrated, they are suffering a great deal", he said.

Alec Baldwin Just Won the Emmy for Playing Trump on SNL

The actor said the Saturday Night Live role has allowed him to act as a "conduit" for outraged Americans.

In the first major awards wins for streaming service Hulu, "The Handmaid's Tale" star Elisabeth Moss was named best drama actress for playing a woman forced into sexual servitude.

Donald Glover won the best comedy actor for "Atlanta", which he created and which carries his distinctive voice, while Julia Louis-Dreyfus was honoured for a sixth time for her role as a self-absorbed politician in the comedy "Veep", named best comedy for the third time. The show also won awards for writing, directing and for supporting actress Ann Dowd for a total of 8.

Meanwhile, Baldwin's co-star Kate McKinnon accepted her Emmy and thanked Hillary Clinton for her grace. Trump took a verbal beating throughout the night, sure, but this comment is surely the most scathing.

After expressing his thanks to his SNL costars, wife, and more, Baldwin concluded by encouraging his colleagues to keep being artistic and expressive.
