Fivepeet For The Veep! Julia Louis-Dreyfus Makes Emmys History By Winning Outstanding Lead Actress In A Comedy Series!

| Filed under: TV NewsAwardzEmmysJulia Louis-Dreyfus

Congrats to Julia Louis-Dreyfus on her FIFTH win as Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series at the 2016 Emmys!

This is her sixth Emmy in the category (she also won for The New Adventures of Old Christine), officially giving her the record!

The Veep star beat out Ellie Kemper in The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Laurie Metcalf in Getting On, Tracee Ellis Ross in black-ish, Amy Schumer in Inside Amy Schumer, and Lily Tomlin in Grace & Frankie!

And in her acceptance speech, Julia showed the exact satire skills that keep getting her the gold with a speech skewering what's really going on in American politics right now. *cough*Donald Trump*cough*

But even more than that, she referenced her father and how important his opinion on her work was as he just passed away this Friday. It was truly touching.

Ch-ch-check it out (above)!
