Donald Glover won the best comedy actor for "Atlanta", which he created and which carries his distinctive voice, while Julia Louis-Dreyfus was honoured for a sixth time for her role as a self-absorbed politician in the comedy "Veep", named best comedy for the third time.

Speaking backstage at the Emmy Awards Sunday following his win for best supporting actor in a comedy, Baldwin addressed the surprise appearance by the former White House press secretary as a part of a comedy bit that opened the show. She called her "Veep" role "the role of a lifetime and an adventure of utter joy".

Master of None's Lena Waithe also made history with her comedy writing win. She also joked about a potential storyline for the upcoming season. She has now broached the Emmys record previously set by Cloris Leachman, who has won eight acting Primetime Emmys and one Daytime Emmy.

Donald Glover's FX show is beloved by critics, and it won awards last night for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series.

The only other actor to ever come close to that sort of winning streak in the category has been Helen Hunt.

McKinnon bested two of her SNL co-stars, Leslie Jones and Vanessa Bayer, while Melissa McCarthy won for her guest work.

"This will be the largest audience to witness the Emmys, period, both in person and around the world", Spicer said.

"More great roles for women, please", said Kidman as she and her fellow executive producer and co-star Reese Witherspoon accepted the miniseries' award.

"The biggest TV star of the past year is Donald Trump - and Alec Baldwin, obviously", said Emmy host Stephen Colbert, who has relentlessly attacked Trump on his "The Late Show".

The Emmy for outstanding television movie went to Netflix's "Black Mirror: San Junipero", which also won a prize for outstanding writing for a limited series or movie for Charlie Brooker. "And for everybody that showed us so much love of this episode, thank you for embracing a little Indian boy from SC and a little queer, black girl from the South Side of Chicago".

A victory by NBC's "This Is Us", the first network drama series to be nominated since CBS' "The Good Wife" in 2011.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus had a lot of competition in the category.

The actress beat out Pamela Adlon, Jane Fonda, Allison Janney, Ellie Kemper, Tracee Ellis Ross and Lily Tomlin for this year's outstanding lead actress in a comedy series award.
