The "Emmys" last night celebrated the best in television . . . and in TRUMP-BASHING. There was a lot of it, starting with host STEPHEN COLBERT's opening musical number and monologue which included an actual, live appearance by former White House Press Secretary SEAN SPICER.
Alec Baldwin, who won Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for playing Trump on "SNL," said during his acceptance speech, "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, griping about never winning an Emmy for "The Apprentice".
Julia Louis-Dreyfus won Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, and became the first person, male or female, to win six years in a row for playing the same character.
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, Dan Fogelman, and some touching words for his wife and sons.
