17 important moments you might have missed from last night's Emmy Awards

Trump jokes, everywhere.

1. Stephen Colbert’s opening monologue was a musical number about how horrific the news is these days – sung while moving through all your favourite TV shows. Chance the Rapper popped up with a bit of rap halfway through too

2. At the ceremony itself, Alexander Skarsgård shifted Nicole Kidman while her husband Keith Urban watched on

“This is grand.”

Skarsgard won outstanding supporting actor in a limited series or movie for his role in Big Little Lies. Accidental lip contact? Probably.

3. Donald Glover made history

He also won writing and acting Emmys for his work on Atlanta.

4. Nicole Kidman delivered a powerful speech about domestic abuse after her outstanding lead actress in a limited series win

5. “At long last, Mr. President, here is your Emmy” – Alec Baldwin won for his SNL Trump parody, and mentioned the man himself in his speech

6. Much has been made of Sean Spicer’s controversial appearance - here’s James Corden kissing him on the cheek for some reason

7. Master of None writer Lena Waithe had the best consecutive Instagram posts of the day

8. It’s Always Sunny’s Rob McElhenney did what we’d all do if we didn’t get an invite

9. Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade were on point

10. As were Felicity Huffman and William H Macy

Deep burn:

It’s a dry British cocktail
Yes, it’s really good. So high quality apparently they can only make one a week
Mine has extra bitters in it

17. Julia Louis Dreyfus took another Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series – and added to the plethora of Trump jokes: “We did have a storyline on impeachment, but we abandoned that because we were worried that someone else might get to it first”
