Emmys 2017: Sean Spicer Makes Surprise Appearance During Stephen Colbert's Monologue

Emmys 2017: Sean Spicer Makes Surprise Appearance During Stephen Colbert's Monologue

Before wrapping up his monologue, Colbert had one more surprise in store: a cameo by former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who rolled out with his own mobile podium (a la Melissa McCarthy on SNL).

But if we're honest with ourselves as artists - and we have to be honest with ourselves - we know that the biggest TV star of the past year is Donald Trump.

He also went after some of Trump's controversial supporters by saying: "You can not deny every the TV show has been influenced by Trump in some way".

And McCarthy wasn't the only audience member stunned by Spicer's appearance on the Emmys stage. Spicer said. "Both in person and around the world".

McDonald moves up at final major
Perth's Minjee Lee and Queenslander Sarah Jane Smith each closed with a 75 to finish one over and three over, respectively. In her final round as a professional before retiring, two-time Evian victor Ai Miyazato shot 73 to finish 1 over.

Hollywood stars in the audience were stunned - including Melissa McCarthy, who imitated Spicer on "Saturday Night Live".

Colbert also joked that HBO's Emmy-nominated Bernie Madoff TV movie "Wizard of Lies" was "the Sean Spicer story".

But not everyone was upset.

Stephen Colbert is known for his incisive political commentary, and recent events being what they are, he found himself with more than enough material to choose from on Sunday night as he hosted the Emmy Awards.

White House: No change in USA position on Paris accord
Trump promised to "cancel" the Paris Agreement during his presidential campaign, but his own White House was split on the issue. Canadian environment minister Catherine McKenna said the participation of a USA delegation in Montreal was a positive sign.

Speaking of Glover, 33, he took home the award for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series for his FX comedy-drama Atlanta, making him the first-ever black director to win in that category. Holding the award Baldwin said, "At long last Mr. President, here is your Emmy".

The Late Show host blended political and TV-related commentary throughout his wide-ranging set, with plenty of punchlines directed at Trump.

The bit came moments after Colbert riffed on the notion that President Trump is now the biggest celebrity on television. "I thought you guys loved morally compromised antiheroes!"

Colbert acknowledged his humor was in front of a friendly audience, asking: "Where do I find the courage to tell that joke in this room?" "Yes, sir. And may I remind you-five years ago, their hottest show was a scratched DVD of Finding Nemo".

Improved Arsenal hold Chelsea to goalless draw
Chelsea coach Antonio Conte had ordered his players not to lose their discipline against Arsenal on Sunday. Wenger said his side hadn't simply come to pull up the drawbridge but to try and take all three points.
