The annual celebration of TV aired Sunday night on CBS, and as expected, Colbert split his time between lampooning 2017’s nominees (even stripping down for a rather spot-on Westworld parody!) and chastising President Donald Trump (with the unlikeliest of assists from ex-White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer).
The ceremony, held at Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater, brought together some of TV’s best and winningest stars for countless teary thank-yous, unforgettable acceptance speeches and a surplus of well-composed “it was an honor to be nominated” faces on those not lucky enough to take home the gold.
Of course, we couldn’t let the three-hour telecast go by without giving a tip of the hat (or wag of the finger) to some of the evening’s most unforgettable moments, be they hilarious (Rachel Bloom’s tuneful salute to the Emmy accountants) or head-scratching (Seth MacFarlane introducing nominees in full-on Family Guy mode).
