Emmys 2016: Jimmy Kimmel Takes Aim at Diversity, Nominees in Emmys Monologue

And not surprisingly, Kimmel took aim at Donald Trump.

The show opened with a nod to the FX series "The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story," during which Kimmel rode on the back of the famed white Ford Bronco, before getting out and then being picked up by other acclaimed drivers, including late-night talk show host James Corden and the cast of "Modern Family" and James Corden.

Kimmel finally got a ride on a dragon from "Game of Thrones."

"If you are a person of color, find a white person and reach out and say thanks for your bravery," he joked.

Kimmel joked about "People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story" actress Sarah Paulson, who is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for her portrayal of lead prosecutor Marcia Clark, whom she plays in the series, as her date to the awards ceremony.

"Everyone in L.A. knows, if you want to win, sit next to Marcia Clark," he said, alluding to her losing the criminal case against Simpson all those years ago.

More jokes to come!
