Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump impression for "SNL" just got the yuuugest stamp of approval. "He's probably the reason I'm up here".

He claimed that what Hollywood and other performers do is important and they should "not stop doing what (they're) doing".

Britain's Riz Ahmed beat presumed front-runner Robert De Niro to take his first Emmy for his role as a man who falls foul of the US judicial system in HBO's crime limited series "The Night Of".

"For everybody out there that showed so much love, thank you for embracing us, a little Indian boy from SC and black girl in the southtown of Chicago".
