Sean Spicer: Being invited to the Emmys was 'a real honor'

"Feud: Bette and Joan", starring Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange in a robust saga of clashing queens of the silver screen, was a promising entry in the Limited Series category.

In the first major awards wins for streaming service Hulu, "The Handmaid's Tale" star Elisabeth Moss was named best drama actress for playing a woman forced into sexual servitude.

CanLit legend Margaret Atwood was the toast of Tinseltown as "The Handmaid's Tale", based on her 1985 dystopian novel, won eight trophies. "I mean, Spicer obviously was compelled to do certain things that we might not have respected or we might not have admired...in order to do his job, but I've done some jobs that are things you shouldn't admire or respect me for either". "I said I'd be there". No musician in history worth a pinch of salt has ever cared who did or didn't win a Grammy, and the fans care even less; we watch Grammy night to see musicians perform, just as we watch the Golden Globes to see drunk celebrities finger-clap while Jacqueline Bissett wanders to the stage.

The 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards just ended after filling the night with strong, emotional, and politically charged moments.

"In these insane times, his life even as an old man reminds us what leadership and courage in government really looks like", the USA actor said.

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".

Spicer also didn't inform Trump or the White House about his appearance and said he hopes Trump wasn't offended by the skit.

She told reporters backstage that the role had been "the greatest honor of my life" and talked of the "special kind of electricity" on set every week.

The Toronto-born creator of "Saturday Night Live" won yet another Emmy for the variety sketch series, which landed nine awards.

The blowback against Sean Spicer's Emmys appearance came pretty quickly, but know this: Stephen Colbert and the show's producers reportedly expected that. "So I just want to make a really good show".

Lena Waithe and Aziz Ansari won for writing the Thanksgiving episode of Masters of None, the best episode of anything so far in 2017.

Trump failed to win an Emmy Award for his reality TV show "The Apprentice". (Spicer appeared on Kimmel last week, too; apparently in addition to lining up speaking gigs, he's also making the rounds with showbiz folks.) As MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell put it on Twitter, "Emmys helped Spicer pump up his "lecture" fees which is all that matters to him now".
