Within the first few minutes of of the opening number, Colbert and fellow stars poked fun at the president with jokes about global warming, Nazis and Russian Federation.

"He began with a politically charged song-'Don't worry about global warming or the Middle East cause of everything's better on TV".

Michaels later said he knows people will stop listening if the show has a clear political bias.

The US president, who never won an Emmy despite his reality show past, was also the butt of multiple jokes at the ceremony honouring the best of television. "Looking forward to the tweets".

This one-two punch seemed to set the stage for the kind of Emmys we've seen before: too long, too white, and full of toothless political jokes that sound courageous without actually saying or doing anything consequential.

"I remember the first time we won this award", Michaels said in accepting the show's trophy.

She was accompanied on stage by Master of None co-creator Aziz Ansari.

"My LGBTQI family-The things that make us different, those are our superpowers". "They were fearless and committed to making the book into a television show, and I also think they were as excited about the show because they're a relatively new company in this environment, making hourlong dramas, so I think that that enthusiasm that they brought to it; there's nothing old hat about making drama at Hulu, and that enthusiasm was really wonderful and really shows in the show". Donald Glover became the first African-American to win for comedy series directing. It took the prize for best drama television series. "So the fact that the most challenging project for me has also been probably the most prominent and successful, certainly in America, that's satisfying".

"We did have a whole storyline about impeachment, but we abandoned that because we were anxious that someone else might get to it first", said Louis-Dreyfus, accepting her trophy. She became a feminist meme.

She captioned the post: "You'll have to guess what the other shoe says.... our note to the patriarchy #teamresistance".

"Sometimes, when you're acting you get a chance to bring a bigger message". "And we're here to say what a wonderful journey our partners at Hulu are fearless". Behind the scenes, co-stars Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman served as executive producers on the show, too. From Lena Waithe's win for an episode about a black woman coming out, to Donald Glover's multiple wins for "Atlanta", a show that represents life in black community, to "Big Little Lies" and "The Handmaid's Tale", which prove that women, no matter their age, have interesting, thoughtful stories to tell that mean something to everyone.

The project, which revolves around a murder investigation, also deals with domestic violence, among other things.
