Trump's inauguration didn't come close to beating the record for the most-viewed presidential inauguration either.

Referring to the former reality TV star he added: "He's the reason I'm probably up here". And series star, Julia Louis Dreyfus won Best actress six years in a row.

Everyone's favorite Crazy Ex-Girlfriend broke out in song and dance. The rap was an apparent reference to Trump's plan to ban transgender people from the military.

Stephen Colbert launched into criticism of President Trump just minutes after he began his opening monologue, bashing the President for failing to receive an Emmy for his Celebrity Apprentice TV show, implying that Trump would be tweeting furiously about the event later tonight.

The 69th Emmy awards show which aired on Sunday night celebrated diversity and equality, and celebrated some Jewish talent as well. And of course next year's Latin Grammys, hosted by Sheriff Joe Arpaio. "The president has complained repeatedly that the Emmys are rigged". "I had a conversation with Stephen (Colbert) and his executive producer".

"But he didn't", said Colbert. "Because unlike the presidency, Emmys go to the victor of the popular vote".

Charlie Brooker stated while accepting an Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series: "I've heard 2017 described as being trapped in one long, unending Black Mirror episode". I wonder if there is a correlation there. "I can understand why you would want one of these guys around".

At the beginning of their speech, Fonda spoke about how her cast members refused to be controlled by a "sexist egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot" during the 1980 film ― and in 2017, "we still refuse", Tomlin added.
