Saturday Night Live star Kate McKinnon won the Primetime Emmy award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for the second year in a row.

Indeed, he blamed Emmy voters for depriving Trump of an award during his "Apprentice" days that might have kept him out of politics, saying, "I thought you people liked morally compromised antiheroes", later adding, "Unlike the presidency, Emmys go to the victor of the popular vote".

"This felt magical, fairy-like" said Zoe Kravitz (Big Little Lies) of her Dior gown decorated with rainbow-coloured ribbons.

"This Is Us" star Sterling K. Brown brought the house down with his hilarious speech when he won Best Lead Actor in a Drama Series- beating out his TV dad, Milo Ventimiglia.

Supporting Actress, Drama Series: Ann Dowd, "The Handmaid's Tale".

So, on Sunday, the 2017 Emmy Awards did just that, while also keeping a foot in the real world and reminding us about the problems we need to face.

Directing, Comedy: Donald Glover, "Atlanta".

Trump-themed barbs came from various directions, including a reunion of "9 to 5" stars Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda and Dolly Parton, who spoke of giving a bigot his comeuppance then and now; and "Veep's" Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who dryly suggested an impeachment storyline was jettisoned because the writers feared someone else might beat the HBO comedy to the punch.

Politics were very much present at the Emmy's, with one of the most shocking moments occurring when former USA press secretary Sean Spicer took the stage during Colbert's presentation, while an embarrassed Melissa McCarthy -who portrayed Spicer numerous times on Saturday Night Live-smiled timidly at the skit.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus accepts the award for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series for "Veep" at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday, Sept. 17, 2017, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

Variety Sketch Series: "Saturday Night Live". He accepted awards for both outstanding variety series and outstanding writing in a variety series as the host of "Last Week Tonight".

"Big Little Lies is painful to watch", Kidman said.

Directing, Limited Movie or Special: Jean-Marc Vallee, "Big Little Lies".

"Big Little Lies", which boasts of a team full of "incredible tribe of fierce women", got eight wins in categories like Outstanding Limited Series, Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Limited Series Or Movie (Alexander Skarsgard), Outstanding Lead Actress In A Limited Series Or Movie (Nicole Kidman) and Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Limited Series Or Movie (Laura Dern). She was recognized for cowriting the "Thanksgiving" episode from season 2 of Master of None with series co-creator Aziz Ansari.
