How the 2017 Emmy Awards could reward a great year of television for women  9/15/2017 8:04:26 PM   Los Angeles Times

Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has warmed up to Melissa McCarthy's Emmy-winning portrayal of him on "Saturday Night Live." So much so that he thinks he deserves a piece of the gilded pie.

When asked earlier this week if McCarthy owes him part of her award, Spicer grinned and said, "I think we should share."

McCarthy took home the award for guest actress in a comedy at last week's Creative Arts Emmys for lampooning President Trump's former chief spokesman.

Spicer, who had at first criticized the recurring bit, acquiesced to the reporter's line of questioning and admitted that he thought "the first one was funny."
