Donald Trump took a bashing at the Emmys last night

Alec Baldwin is once again an Emmy victor - and he has President Donald Trump to thank. So as Alec Baldwin took the stage Sunday night to accept an award for his impersonation of Trump on "Saturday Night Live, " he had a message for the president.

Baldwin spoke directly to Trump, who has complained in the past that he was cheated out of a trophy for hosting "Celebrity Apprentice": "I suppose I should say, 'At long last, Mr. President, here is your Emmy'".

But Baldwin wasn't done.

Baldwin noted he and his wife had three children in three years, but had not gotten pregnant again since he started playing Trump on the NBC late night show, joking his orange wig is a form of birth control.

Lena Waithe became the first African American woman to win an Emmy award for writing for a comedy series. "He's the reason I'm probably up here", said Glover.

"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. Thank you to Stephen for giving me a lot of encouragement.

The stars of such critical darlings as "Saturday Night Live", "Veep" and "Last Week with John Oliver" were all celebrated. When he hosted the show for a record 17th time in February, it got a bigger rating than when Trump hosted in November 2015. Melissa McCarthy also won for her work as a guest actress on "SNL", notably portraying former White House press secretary Sean Spicer. Kidman thanked her husband Keith Urban and her daughters for supporting her career, and said she hoped the Emmy win can be a lesson for others in a way. "I do think that people are overwhelmed; that we're in a situation now where a critical mass of people still don't accept where we are".

Baldwin also noted that he will be available to reprise his role for several shows once SNL kicks off its new season on September 30. "We shone a light on domestic abuse", she said.

Baldwin was also nominated for Outstanding Host for Match Game, but lost out to RuPaul Charles at the Creative Arts Emmys last week.
