Worst: Alec Baldwin Winning for His Trump Impersonation

The award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy was Alec Baldwin's to lose – his turn as Trump has been one of the most talked-about performances of the past year, including from the thin-skinned president himself. (Though let's be real – it's not exactly hard to goad Trump into angrily tweeting about TV shows when he should be, you know, doing anything else.) Still, his inclusion in the category seemed questionable at best, and while his speech hit the right targets, it felt like a bit of an easy gimme. And we'd have liked to see The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt's Tituss Burgess take home the gold; his performance in the Netflix series' most recent season was as GIF-worthy as ever, but with a newfound dramatic undercurrent that deserved recognition.
