Sean Spicer steals spotlight at Emmys with guest appearance

19 September, 2017, 01:13 | Author: Valerie Burke

"And Alec, you're up against a lot of neck".

The interaction was compared by some to the divisive and much-criticised moment US TV star Jimmy Fallon playfully messed with Donald Trump's hair during an interview last September.

Colbert's attention soon turned back to Trump.

"There were over 450 original scripted shows made this year".

69th Primetime Emmy Awards - Show - Los Angeles, California, U.S., 17/09/2017 - Alec Baldwin accepts the award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for "Saturday Night Live".

The night meanwhile also had a showcase of Hollywood's liberal leanings as applied to 2017.

"Saturday Night Live", a series that now dedicates almost every second to worn-out Trump insults, won multiple awards on Sunday night, including Emmys for Outstanding Comedy Series and Best Actress and Actor in a Comedy Series.

The Emmy victor took another jab at the president when he mentioned that he and his wife, Hilaria Baldwin, did not have a baby this past year. She continued, "I see each and every one of you". "The Handmaid's Tale" won five awards, including best TV drama and best actress for Elizabeth Moss.

Trump denounces attack in London, urges "proactive" steps
Trump told reporters Friday morning that he had been briefed on the explosion and said he planned to call May. Trump, addressing reporters briefly on camera, called the attack "an absolutely awful thing".

State budget's future in Senate unclear
Walker told reporters earlier Wednesday he would sign off on last-minute budget changes speeding up repeal of the prevailing wage. The budget up for debate largely mirrors what Walker introduced in February and comes before he runs for re-election next year.

This all isn't to say that scripted political television will save America, but a nuanced, 10-episode season is certainly harder to dismiss in a tweet than a 30-second sound bite on the podium.

The spotlight continued to be on politics even when others took the stage. "I don't think you can help but have it affect you".

"We did have a whole storyline about impeachment but we abandoned that because we were anxious that someone else might get to it first", said Louis-Dreyfus, accepting her trophy.

"This is, and continues to be, the role of a lifetime and an adventure of utter, utter joy", Louis-Dreyfus said during her acceptance speech.

It was a clear reference was to Trump's January 20 Inauguration Day claims, contradicted by photos, about how big the audience was for his oath-taking ceremony.

Imagine if the whole night had taken such a tone.

"Imagine if your president was not beloved by Nazis". Following his amusing performance, Colbert commended the more than 400 hours of new television that premiered this year, and added that no one has time to watch that much television - except the president.
