Alec Baldwin Defends Sean Spicer at Emmys

Alec Baldwin Defends Sean Spicer at Emmys

Alec Baldwin immediately recognized President Trump after winning at the Emmys.

Meantime, Alec Baldwin brought down the house accepting an Emmy for his impersonation of President Donald Trump.

Atlanta's Donald Glover, accepting his award for Best Actor in a Comedy, said: "I want to thank Trump for making black people No.1 on the most oppressed list".

But Baldwin wasn't done. "All you men up there, you put that orange wig on, it's birth control, trust me".

"Big Little Lies" won the limited series award, with Nicole Kidman taking the lead actress award and supporting honours going to her castmates Alexander Skarsgard and Laura Dern. "And in 2017, we still refuse to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot", said the 78-year-old.

After expressing his thanks to his SNL costars, wife, and more, Baldwin concluded by encouraging his colleagues to keep being artistic and expressive. Because he was nominated multiple times for Celebrity Apprentice but he never won.

Meanwhile, Baldwin's co-star Kate McKinnon accepted her Emmy and thanked Hillary Clinton for her grace.

The "Saturday Night Live" Season 43 premiere is set for September 30 with host Ryan Gosling and musical guest Jay-Z.

Sterling K. Brown won best dramatic actor for his role as an African-American who is adopted into a white family in heart-tugging NBC family drama "This Is Us".

Backstage Baldwin said he would be reprising his Trump role in the upcoming new series of "Saturday Night Live", describing his impersonation as an outlet for Americans who can not come to terms with Trump's election.

His first parodied Trump on the show in October 2016, and reprised the role four more times before the presidential election, assuming that he wouldn't be doing it after the election, based on the assumption that a Hillary Clinton victory was inevitable. The actor's gig on Match Game also scored him a nomination at last weekend's Creative Arts Emmys for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program. Heading into Sunday, SNL had won the top variety prize since 1993 - prior to the category's split between sketch and talk.
