Julia Louis-Dreyfus Sets Her Place in TV History, Again

On the acting side of things, Sterling K. Brown, Donald Glover, Riz Ahmed, Alec Baldwin, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus all had historic wins.

The big win for HBO comedy series Veep ties her with acting legend Cloris Leachman for most ever by a performer as they both have eight gongs total.

The dystopian series "The Handmaid's Tale" was crowned best TV drama on Sunday at the Emmy Awards, and the show also won best drama writing and directing while earning Elisabeth Moss a best actress statuette and Ann Dowd a best drama supporting actress award. She is also now one of two performers with the most overall Emmy awards.


With awards juggernaut Downton Abbey" finished and "Game of Thrones ineligible, this year's Emmys are seen as the first in years in which any show could take home the most prestigious statuettes. The series has been an awards-season juggernaut for the last few years, kicking Modern Family off its Emmys pedestal in the best-comedy category after a long streak.

Can't watch the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards?

After an incredible run, the HBO comedy sensation Veep is heading into its seventh and final season. The former White House press secretary made a surprise Emmys appearance, wheeling in his own podium. Colbert, whose show The Late Show with Stephen Colbert lost to John Oliver's Last Week Tonight in the Outstanding Variety Talk Series category, took a moment to languish in feigned disappointment during an impromptu bit with fellow late-night host Jimmy Kimmel.


"This is, and continues to be, the role of a lifetime, and an adventure of utter, utter joy", she said during her acceptance speech.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus had a lot of competition in the category.

This would mean it won't be eligible at the 2018 Emmys, as shows that are nominated that year have to have broadcast episodes prior to May 31.
