Melissa McCarthy just won an Emmy for her portrayal of Sean Spicer on 'SNL'

Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer was one of the highlights of “SNL” this past season. Between riding around New York City on a podium, and screaming at people, McCarthy made a lasting impression with her impression of the former White House Press Secretary.

McCarthy was awarded for her memorable performance Sunday night at the Creative Arts Awards for the 2017 Emmys. McCarthy won the Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy.

Other big winners at the Creative Arts Emmys on Sunday include “Stranger Things” for Outstanding Casting, Alexis Bledel for Guest Actress in her role on Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” and Dave Chappelle for Guest Actor on “SNL.”

The 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards airs Sunday, September 17 on CBS.
