Watch the 2017 Emmys Red Carpet Live Stream

Watch the 2017 Emmys Red Carpet Live Stream”

And in a surprise move, even theformer White House Press Secretary turned up on stage for a jab at his former boss.

In our polarized world, even that amusing joke sparked some Twitter outrage by people offended that Spicer would make fun of misleading the country to soothe the ego of his boss.

It was certainly a surprising and amusing bit Colbert pulled, but some on Twitter have pointed out how uncomfortable they are by Spicer - who spent months lying and scheming on Trump's behalf - becoming a genial celebrity.

It took Colbert till 8:07 to mention Trump, and first threw a softball, saying Trump was the only one with enough time to watch all the TV shows other there.

To close it off, Colbert gave an explanation, "Unlike the presidency, Emmy's go to the victor of the popular vote". Many Emmy winners aren't popular shows. Will you watch on television or live streaming online?

The award show will be telecast live on CBS Television Network from 8pm ET and 5pm PT onwards. "This Is Us" was the second-most viewed at 35 per cent. "Black-ish" followed at 28 per cent.

"If he'd won, I bet he would not have run for president", Colbert told the crowd. "The world's a little better on TV!" The series also took awards for best drama writing and directing. He said he thought at the time "it was a insane, exhausting, fearful, exhilarating season" that couldn't be topped.

Of course, a majority of the successful actors, actresses, writers, and directors have earned a better than average living over the course of their careers, however, Reese Witherspoon has earned more than any of her fellow Emmy nominees.

This is his sixth Emmy win. He credited author Margaret Atwood, "who scared the living crap out of me when I was in college".

"There were over 450 original scripted shows made this year". That might not have been much of a loss the way things were going. But no Latinos and only one Asian-American - "Master of None" star and co-creator Aziz Ansari - were nominated. The very next morning - the morning after the 2012 Emmys - Trump slammed the Emmy ratings and blamed in on the fact that, you guessed it, The Apprentice's lack of nomination. "He is the reason I'm probably up here".

Colbert opened Sunday's Emmys ceremony with a musical number that touched on climate change, news media and included Julia Louis-Dreyfus, dressed as her foul-mouthed fictitious president Selina Meyer from "Veep", singing "Imagine if your president was not beloved by Nazis". I doubt anxious was the right word there for those writers. Big Little Lies (HBO), Fargo, and The Night Of are following it with 16, 16, and 13 nominations.

Ann Dowd got us choked up with her win for outstanding supporting actress in a drama series for "The Handmaid's Tale" - mostly because she was so emotional.

Speaking of amusing, we vote for Rachel Bloom to introduce the accountants on all the awards shows.

And losing doesn't appear to be a concern for Colbert. You will be required to have a subscription for CBS All Access. All the late night shows, obviously. It just didn't help Sunday night.
