President Donald Trump’s counselor Kellyanne Conway criticized the recently held Emmy Awards over the political remarks made in the show, Time reported. The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards happened at the Microsoft Theater in California on September 17.

Conway appeared on Monday’s episode of “Fox & Friends” and shared her sentiments over the show’s outcome. She said that the ratings of the annual awards show have dropped low because they have politicized the event over the years.

She added that even other major shows on television have been politicized lately.

Conway in particular mentioned the Miss America pageant and sports events on TV, adding that the ratings of these shows “are suffering” and that fewer Americans are watching them.

Clinton's impersonator wins an award

Kellyanne Conway, who also managed the campaign of President Trump, noted that the 2017 Emmys have been getting lower ratings because of “the sameness.” She said that the celebrities on the show just sound the same.

She told “Fox & Friends” hosts that while she was aware that these celebrities “are entitled to their opinion,” she questioned if these insights were inappropriate. However, Conway noted some of the memorable moments in the show such as Sean Spicer’s appearance.

The White House counselor said that Spice delivered his act with a good sense of humor.

She was also pleased with Kate McKinnon’s Emmy win for her portrayal of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on “Saturday Night Live.”

Political statements

Just like the recently held shows such as the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards and 2018 Miss America pageant, the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards also had hosts making political statements.

Host Stephen Colbert mentioned President Trump as the biggest star on television this year.

Colbert also made comparisons of the audience volume for this year’s awards ceremonies to the audience during the inaugural ceremonies of President Trump.

The 2017 Emmy Awards was a major win for the popular television series “The Handmaid’s Tale,” winning five awards in the major categories.

Nicole Kidman won Best Actress for her role in “Big Little Lies,” and Laura Dern won Best Supporting Actress for the TV show as well.

“Saturday Night Live” bagged the Best Comedy television program category, with actors Alec Baldwin named Best Supporting Actor and Kate McKinnon named as Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. Baldwin and McKinnon portrayed Trump and Clinton during their fight for the presidency last year.
