Emmys 2017: Is Hollywood too liberal?

Sean Spicer Emmys

"The Handmaid's Tale", a drama about an authoritarian society where some found disturbing echoes in real life, was the most-honored drama on Sunday night.

Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer speaks onstage during the 69th Emmy Awards at the Microsoft Theatre on September 17, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.

Louis-Dreyfus, who won best comedy actress for a record sixth time for her role as Meyer on "Veep", said of the upcoming season, "We did have whole storyline about an impeachment, but we abandoned that because we were anxious that someone else might get to it first".

Backstage after the Emmys, Alec Baldwin was reportedly asked about the propriety of Spicer's appearance.

"This will be the largest audience to witness an Emmys, period", Spicer announced from a podium titled "The Emmys - Hollywood". "Both in person and around the world", Spicer told the audience, an homage to his widely panned explanation of the crowd size for President Trump's inauguration.

The way India handle these issues might also provide a look into the team's thinking on the matter of planning for the future. In a near ideal first hour for Australia , Steve Smith could have made it better had he held on to a catch second slip.

Alec Baldwin won the comedy supporting actor Emmy for his withering impersonations of Trump for "Saturday Night Live "on the Comcast Corp's NBC". And "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" won Best Variety Talk series.

"We've got unbelievable shows like 'Stranger Things.' Millie Bobby Brown is here tonight". "I can understand why you'd want one of these guys around".

The comedian quipped that the crowd at the Emmys bore responsibility for Trump as he may not have sought the White House had he won an award.

Michael Keane comments on choosing Everton over Manchester United
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has vowed to return to the field as an improved player as he works his way back to Manchester United after knee surgery.

Michaels later said he knows people will stop listening if the show has a clear political bias. "But we're a really plugged in group of actors", he said. "It is filled with shame and secrecy, and by you acknowledging me with this award, it shines a light on it even more", she said.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus earned the best comic actress Emmy for the sixth time as the clueless politician in "Veep", and the show was named best comedy for the third time.

Instead, most celebrities flubbed yet another opportunity for good - and took the easy road by predictably using their platform to obsess over and bash the president of the United States. Sad.

Kidman said the show "was created out of frustration because women weren't getting great roles".
