Pure gold.

Last night's Emmy awards was one for the books. Donald Glover and Lena Waithe made history, Anna Clumsky's reactions were everything and Sean Spicer showed up. 

But perhaps one of the best, sweetest moments of all was Alec Baldwin winning Best Supporting Actor, Comedy for his role as President Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live. 

Alec debuted his Trump character during the presidential election in 2016 and has continued to play him since he entered the oval office.

In his Emmy speech, Alec made sure to give credit where credit is due. 

"I suppose I should say, At long last, Mr. President, here is your Emmy," he started.

"I want to thank my wife. My wife and I had three children in three years and we didn’t have a child last year during the SNL. season. I wonder if there is a correlation there. All you men up there, you put that orange wig on, it’s birth control, trust me."

Of course, the initial joke poked fun at Trump's insistence that the Emmys were rigged against his show, "The Apprentice." A complaint he couldn't even let go during a presidential debate. 

Though it's almost a guarantee that Trump angrily watched last night's award show, he has yet to comment (a.k.a. tweet) about it. So until that glorious moment comes (and it will be glorious), let's look back on all the best Alec Baldwin Trump SNL moments: 

1. The Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton debate. 

The debate itself had more than enough jokes for SNL to pull from (remember all the sniffling?). Though Baldwin was wonderful capturing that train wreck, Kate McKinnon had some well-deserved kudos for her reactions as Hillary Clinton. 

2. When Baldwin-Trump interrupted the vice presidential debate to address comments he made in 2005. 

Remember when Trump was talking about grabbing women by their "p*ssies?" What a fun time.

Thankfully, we had Alec Baldwin to make sure those comments didn't go ignored in the scheduled skit of the vice presidential debate. Instead, they cut to "Trump" being interview by Cecily Strong and scaring everyone with a "Bop-It" inspired description of the technique. Yikes. 

3. When Trump met with his supporters in Kentucky's Boone County. 

'Gotta love coal" could have easily been a t-shirt. In fact, I'm a little upset it hasn't been. 

In this sketch, Trump meets with his supporters in a fake town in Kentucky and they talk about coal. 

"As president, I'm going to do everything I can to make sure you people work in coal for the rest of your lives. And your kids will work in coal and your grandkids. It's going to be incredible."

4. When Trump panicked about having to follow through with his campaign promises. 

In his first skit as playing President Donald Trump, SNL poked fun at the probably true idea that Trump freaked out when he realized he actually had to be president now. 

His total freakout was kind of amazing. 

5. That other Trump and Clinton Debate. 

Though SNL received a little backlash during their second portrayal of Trump in a debate, they really hit the nail on the head in their third round. 

My personal favorite moment was when he forgot the name of the president of Mexico and called him "Senor Guacamole," who's kids names were "Chips" and "Salsa."

6. When Trump held a press conference. 

This skit, in particular, made the real Donald Trump a little upset as it made fun of the unverified report about Russia having "compromising information" about him. 

As the president, Baldwin wouldn't comment on the report and just said "it didn't happen, and it wasn't as cool as it sounded." 

7. When Trump was in People's Court. 

In a sketch in February, SNL took Trump to People's Court over his highly controversial travel ban after Trump told the federal courts who stopped the ban that he would, in fact, see them in court.
