Andy Samberg might not have had his partner in crime Justin Timberlake on stage with him, but the comedian was able to hold his own.

He kicked things off with a video that poked fun at the massive number of shows available, and then moved onto a monologue that went heavy on politics.

"Sure, Donald Trump seems racist," the "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" star said at one point as he paused. "What else?"

When it came to diversity, Samberg called out nominees like Davis and Henson. He said, "The big story this year is diversity," he said, but then added, "So congratulations, Hollywood, you did it. Racism is over! Don't fact-check that."

1. Viola Davis wins Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series

Viola Davis got the most buzz on social media on Sunday after her powerful acceptance speech on making entertainment a more diverse space.

Davis quoted Harriet Tubman in her speech and urged Hollywood to write in more parts for black women.

"You cannot win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there," she said. "Here's to all the writers, the awesome people that are Ben Sherwood, Paul Lee, Peter Nowalk, Shonda Rhimes -- people who have redefined what it means to be beautiful, to be sexy, to be a leading woman, to be black."
