(ROUGH CUT - NO REPOTER NARRATION) "The Handmaid's Tale" and political comedy "Veep" won the top prizes at the Emmy awards on Sunday, but satirical sketch show "Saturday Night Live" won the most Emmys overall on the back of a season of Donald Trump spoofs. The new U.S. president, who never won an Emmy despite his reality show past, was also the butt of multiple jokes at the ceremony honoring the best of television. Alec Baldwin won the comedy supporting actor Emmy for his withering impersonations of Trump for "Saturday Night Live "on the Comcast Corp's NBC. After its most-watched season in 23 years, "Saturday Night Live" won nine Emmys, including best variety sketch series, for actress Kate McKinnon and for Melissa McCarthy's turn as former White House press secretary Sean Spicer. There were a slew of new faces among Sunday's winners from female-centric shows like "Big Little Lies," "A Handmaid's Tale" and "Veep," and rare wins for women directors, writers and producers.
