Alec Baldwin won for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series at the Emmys Sunday night for his role as President Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live.”

And he started off his speech with a bang.

“I suppose I should say at long last Mr. President here is your Emmy,” he said to applause.

The opener was a callback from host Stephen Colbert’s monologue earlier in the night, which referenced that Trump had been nominated for multiple Emmys for “Celebrity Apprentice,” but had never won. According to Colbert, it’s a thing that might’ve changed some things.

“If he had won an Emmy, I bet he wouldn’t have run for President,” Colbert remarked. “So in a way this is all your fault.”

Baldwin continued his speech thanking “Saturday Night Live,” his fellow cast members, his wife and more.

He joked that while he and his wife Hilaria Baldwin had three children in three years, but took a break while he was on “Saturday Night Live” playing the President. “When you put the wig on, it’s birth control,” he said.

Then he ended on a note reminding the audience of the importance of the arts.

He began saying that when you die, people don’t remember a bill that Congress passed, but “You remember a song. You remember a line from a movie. You remember a play, you remember a book, a painting, a poem. What we do is important… don’t stop what you’re doing. The audience is counting on you.”
