Alec Baldwin wins Emmy for 'Saturday Night Live' role, thanks President Trump

Baldwin's impression of President Trump on Saturday Night Live earned him the award.

Baldwin won the award for best supporting actor in a comedy for his portrayal of the president on "Saturday Night Live".

After receiving her Emmy for best comedy actress, Julia Louis-Dreyfus of HBO's Veep, said the show had prepared "a whole story line about impeachment, but we abandoned it because we were anxious that someone else might get to it first". Alec beat other performers like Louie Anderson, Tituss Burgess, Ty Burrell, Tony Hale, and Matt Walsh.

The actor's impersonations of Trump have propelled "SNL" to its best season in years, bringing in viewers and also Emmy glory.

"I suppose I should say - at long last, Mr. President, here is your Emmy", Baldwin said to a roar of laughter and cheers.

During his speech, Baldwin continued the theme of the night by making cracks about Trump.

"You put that orange wig on, and its birth control", he deadpanned.

The new USA president, who never won an Emmy despite his reality show past, was also the butt of multiple jokes at the ceremony honoring the best of television.

Speaking about the upcoming season of her American political comedy, Louis-Dreyfus said: "We did have a whole storyline about an impeachment but we abandoned that because we were anxious someone might get to it first". "The audience is counting on you", he said to the crowd that consisted of stars like Robert De Niro, Oprah Winfrey and Kevin Spacey.

The absence of two-time Emmy champ "Game of Thrones" because of a later broadcast date has opened the door to new shows in the coveted best drama series.

Colbert also invited former White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer on stage who revisited his infamous lines from the press conference right after Trump's inauguration in January.

"SNL" has a good night: "Saturday Night Live", like the nighttime talk shows, has capitalized on the 2016 election to huge success.

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 did have a whole storyline about impeachment", she said of "Veep".
