Donald Glover, who was awarded twice at the award night, took a sly dig at Trump during his speech for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.

McKinnon accepted her Emmy saying, "Thank you to Hillary Clinton for your grace." .

Accepting his statuette, Baldwin quipped, "I suppose I should say, "at long last Mr. President, here is your Emmy"".

Speaking on behalf of the president during his tenure as White House press secretary, Sean Spicer said the parody was "mean."

Trump was accused of being a "lying, hypocritical bigot" and making black people the most oppressed in America.

American comedian-actor Stephen Colbert, debuting as the Emmy Awards host, laced his opening monologue with swipes at Trump.

Britain's Riz Ahmed beat presumed front-runner Robert De Niro to take his first Emmy for his role as a man who falls foul of the US judicial system in HBO's crime limited series "The Night Of".

After expressing his thanks to his SNL costars, wife, and more, Baldwin concluded by encouraging his colleagues to keep being artistic and expressive. Netflix's anthology series "Black Mirror" won two awards, including best TV movie for its episode "San Junipero". However, US President is not impressed with Baldwin's act.

Jewish filmmaker Ezra Edelman won the nonfiction directing Emmy for his work on the ESPN documentary "O.J.: Made in America".

The limited series "Big Little Lies" and "The Night Of", the comedy "Veep" and the late-night show "Last Week Tonight With John Oliver" all won multiple awards.

The most important win for SNL was for Outstanding Variety Series, though.

The "In Memorian" segment had several notable exclusions, including Dick Gregory and Harry Dean Stanton.
