"Veep" Again Wins Emmy For Outstanding Comedy Series

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Sets Emmys Record With Sixth Consecutive Win for Veep

Sterling K. Brown made history on Sunday night after becoming the first black actor in 19 years to win the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a drama series, and he wasn't going to let anyone get in the way of his time in the spotlight.

Even more impressively, Louis-Dreyfus now stands alongside the legendary Cloris Leachman as the most fêted performer in Emmy Awards history with eight overall wins.

The actress played presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during the most recent season, and thanked Clinton during her acceptance speech. Prior to that win, the actress had maintained a three-way tie with Candice Bergen and Mary Tyler Moore for most lead actress wins. "He's the reason I'm probably up here", Glover said, acknowledging the entertainment industry's and the Emmys' tilt toward the political under President Donald Trump.

To the surprise of absolutely no one, Julia Louis-Dreyfus was once again awarded the Lead Actress in a Comedy Emmy for her work on Veep at Sunday's 69th Primetime Emmy Awards.

Alec Baldwin took home the award for best supporting actor in a comedy series for his portrayal of President Trump on Saturday Night Live. The latter award was groundbreaking as he was the first black director to ever win in the category.

The win for McKinnon was her second in a row.

Previously, Louis-Dreyfus has taken home awards for "Seinfeld" and "The New Adventures of Old Christine".

Kidman said the production highlighted the "complicated, insidious disease" of domestic abuse.

NBC's "The Voice" won the third consecutive Emmy for outstanding reality-competition program.

"This will be the largest audience to witness an Emmys, period, in person and around the world", Spicer said. "Black Mirror: San Junipero" was named best TV movie.
