"I adore Cloris Leachman", she said. Baldwin's win is the third win for "Saturday Night Live" during Sunday's show.
The series has been an awards-season juggernaut for the last few years, kicking Modern Family off its Emmys pedestal in the best-comedy category after a long streak.
Hosted by Stephen Colbert, the Emmys telecast surprised many in the crowd with a cameo appearance by former White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
"I want to thank Trump for making black people No. 1 on the most oppressed list".
Wonderful Kid - Jurgen Klopp Happy With Liverpool Star's Attitude
Jurgen Klopp tried to address his defensive woes by trying to lure Virgil van Dijk to Liverpool but Southampton refused to sell. But we are on a good way and maybe next time we will score that one goal more than the other team.
"Wow", Colbert replied. "That really soothes my fragile ego".
Another tell-tale sign: Veep took home the casting prize at last week's Creative Arts Emmy Awards, which it's also done in the past two years leading up to its Primetime Emmy victories. Dern won for her role in the HBO series "Big Little Lies". Out of breath, she also took a moment to thank the author who wrote the book and gave shout-outs to Hulu and MGM.
The supporting comedy actress Emmy has been awarded to Kate McKinnon. Both of his wins were for his work on the FX series Atlanta, which he also created.
"This is and it continues to be the role of a lifetime and an adventure of utter joy", she concluded. Lithgow won for his role on the Netflix series "The Crown". "And thank you for that opportunity and for audiences to wrap their arms around us", Witherspoon continued, with Kidman adding: "So now more great roles for women, please".
Lithgow thanked Churchill in his acceptance speech Sunday night. Spicer walked on the stage, pushing a podium, during Colbert's opening monologue, satirizing the much-publicized debate over the size of the crowd at President Donald Trump's inauguration ceremony.
"Saturday Night Live" won the Emmy for outstanding variety sketch series, and Lorne Michaels, the show's creator and producer, said he remembered accepting the show's first Emmy for outstanding variety show after its first season in 1975-76.
