This is What's Trending Today...
Hollywood honored its biggest stars of television Sunday night at the 69th Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, California.
The Handmaid's Tale was one of the night's major winners. It took the prize for best drama television series. And its star, Elizabeth Moss won for best lead actress in a drama series. She plays one of the few fertile women left in a totalitarian world.
The best comedy series award went to Veep, a show about a fictional U.S. politician. It was the third win in a row for the series.
Julia Louis Dreyfus, the star of Veep, won for best comedy actress for the sixth time in a row. She now has more Emmys for the same role than any other actor.
Several other stars made Emmy history Sunday, as well. Lena Waithe became the first African-American woman to win for comedy writing. She won for her work on the Netflix show Master of None. Donald Glover became the first African-American to win for comedy series directing. He earned the honor for his work on the show Atlanta.
And Riz Ahmed became the first Asian man to win a best actor award. He won in the limited series or movie group for his work on The Night Of. He played a Pakistani/Iranian-American college student who is accused of murder.
Saturday Night Live won the most Emmys of any show this year. It won the Emmy for best variety show. And the actors who play President Donald Trump and former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton -- Alec Baldwin and Kate McKinnon -- both won Emmys for supporting roles in a comedy.
Trump a big part of show
Trump was a major subject throughout the award show.
Comedian Stephen Colbert was the host of the show. At the start, he made several jokes about Trump. He recalled the president's comment about never having won an Emmy for his work on the reality TV show Celebrity Apprentice.
Colbert joked that Trump would not have run for president if he had been able to win the top U.S. television award.
The president's former press secretary, Sean Spicer, made a surprise appearance Sunday night. He rolled out onto the stage on an electric version of the White House lectern, from where he used to take questions from members of the media.
Another Saturday Night Live cast member, Melissa McCarthy, won an Emmy for playing Spicer. In her television impersonation of Spicer, she often used a motorized lectern.
On Sunday night, Spicer himself declared this year's awards show the most-watched Emmys ever, mocking his own false statement about a record audience for Trump's inauguration in Washington eight months earlier.
