SNL hosts McCarthy, Chappelle win Emmys

McCarthy picked up an Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series on Sunday at the Creative Arts Awards for her now classic portrayal of Spicer, according to the Huffington Post.

McCarthy's impersonation of former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on "Saturday Night Live" drew millions of YouTube views and helped the show garner some of its highest ratings in years.

Chappelle hosted the first "SNL" episode to follow last November's presidential election.

With slicked-back hair and wearing ill-fitting suits, McCarthy played Spicer, whom she dubbed Spicey, as an enraged man who attacks the media, craves the praise of his boss, and rides a motorised speaker's podium.

McCarthy was not present at the ceremony to accept her award.

Despite giving audiences one of the best comedy series to hit TV, Dave Chappelle was never an Emmy award victor until now.

McCarthy was awarded for her memorable performance Sunday night at the Creative Arts Awards for the 2017 Emmys.

The winners are Gerald McRaney for his role on "This Is Us" and Alexis Bledel for "The Handmaid's Tale". Next Sunday's ceremony will air on CBS and be hosted by comedian and "Late Show" host Stephen Colbert.
