Kimmel started off as, “If your show doesn’t have a dragon or a White Bronco in it, go home now.”

He also took a dig at Donald Trump and Mark Burnett, producer of Celebrity Apprentice as well as at the cast of Game of Thrones in his opening speech at the Emmys Sunday night.

He was seen in a video montage riding with the cast of Modern Family, on “Carpool Karaoke” with James Corden, a limo carrying Julia Louis-Dreyfus with Jeb Bush as the driver and finally getting dropped off by Daenerys Targaryen a.k.a Daenerys Targaryen on her dragon.

Below is a list of the main winners that took away an Emmy home last night.
