Alec Baldwin Wins Critics Choice Award for Trump Impersonation

President-elect Donald Trump may have disliked Alec Baldwin’s parody of him on Saturday Night Live but, it seems, critics disagree with him. On Sunday, Baldwin won a Critics Choice Award for his impersonation of Trump.

He may have appeared on SNL as the Republican presidential candidate a mere four times but Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump was a big hit. In fact, it was one of the reasons SNL viewers looked forward to every weekend during the campaign period. Baldwin’s impersonation was spot-on, and for that, he received the 2016 Critics Choice Award for Best Guest Performer in a Comedy Series.

‘Many thanks to the Critics Choice Awards…’ tweeted Baldwin after his win.

It is safe to assume that Donald Trump is not at all pleased. The president-elect has repeatedly attacked SNL for his impersonations one of the most recent of which was just after the election.

“Just tried watching Saturday Night Live — unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can’t get any worse. Sad,” Trump tweeted.

To which Alec Baldwin replied, “@realDonaldTrump, release your tax returns and I’ll stop. Ha.”

Aside from Baldwin, another ‘presidential candidate’ won a Critics Choice Award. Kate McKinnon, who parodied Hillary Clinton on Saturday Night Live, was named Best Actress in a Comedy Series.

With these wins, we will hopefully see more of Trump and Hillary on SNL in the coming weeks.
