Veep wins best comedy at 2017 Emmys

Veep wins best comedy at 2017 Emmys”

Unlike her beleaguered on-screen counterpart, Julia Louis-Dreyfus has proven she can always cinch the votes.

Louis-Dreyfus has won every year she's played mercurial president Meyer, and this was her 24th overall Emmy nomination.

Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus, vying for a sixth consecutive Emmy for best actress in a comedy, is the only other nominee who could be described as a shoo-in, according to Birnbaum.

HBO announced earlier in the month that season 7 of Veep is set to air in 2018, and will be the show's last. Louis-Dreyfus submitted the season six finale, "Groundbreaking", for Emmy consideration this year.

Not only did Louis-Dreyfus beat out "Mom" actress Allison Janney, who has two lead actress Emmys of her own, but she also edged out "Black-ish" actress Tracee Ellis Ross and Jane Fonda (Netflix's "Grace and Frankie").

She has five for Veep and one for New Adventures of Old Christine. It also makes her the only actor or actress to win that many Emmys for the same role.

"More great roles for women, please", said Kidman as she and her fellow executive producer and co-star Reese Witherspoon accepted the miniseries' award. "Atlanta" took home the trophy for the former, while "Master Of None" picked up the writing award. "Both in person and around the world", Spicer shouted with authority, echoing his claim that Trump's inauguration crowd was the biggest ever and evoking McCarthy's manic portrayal of him.

"Veep" star Julia Louis Dreyfus revealed during her Emmys acceptance speech that the show had planned for an impeachment to take place but dropped it in case President Trump was impeached. Though it has a tight murderer's row of actors in its cast (including perpetual nominee Anna Chlumsky and Emmy victor Tony Hale), it's Louis-Dreyfus who has anchored the series and carried it to prominence.

Everyone knows Game of Thrones is a record-breaking Emmy machine (the series has earned 38 statues, beating out Frasier as the most-won scripted show).
