Alec Baldwin took home the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series on Sunday night, marking his third win, and... Trump's first?

Baldwin, who won the honor for portraying Trump on the long-running sketch series, was quick to credit the reality star for his success.

"I guess I should say, at long last, Mr. President, here is your Emmy," the 59-year-old said after accepting the award, referencing host Stephen Colbert's jab at Trump's Emmy obsession of days past.

Baldwin, who attended the event with wife Hilaria, was up against Baskets' Louis Anderson, Veep's Tony Hale and Matt Walsh, and Titus Burgess of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

After having his fun, Baldwin got serious, addressing and encouraging other creators.

"What we do is important. To all of you out there in motion pictures and television: don't stop doing what you're doing. The audience is counting on you," he expressed.
