Julia Louis-Dreyfus 'Numb' After Record-Tying Emmy Win

Julia Louis-Dreyfus a cast member in the HBO series Veep poses at an Emmy For Your Consideration event for the show at the Television Academy in Los Angeles

The 56-year-old Veep actress won Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for the sixth year in a row at the 2017 Emmy Awards held at the Microsoft Theater on Sunday (September 17) in Los Angeles.

"This is and it continues to be the role of a lifetime and an adventure of utter joy", she concluded. Last year, she broke the same record for most consecutive wins. It was her 10th Emmy win overall, including producing credits on "Seinfeld", "Old Christine" and "Veep". "He's the reason I'm probably up here", Glover said, acknowledging the entertainment industry's and the Emmys' tilt toward the nonstop political under President Donald Trump. She also spoke of the comedy's upcoming final season, in which they chose to drop an impeachment storyline because they were "worried that someone else might get to it first".

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.

Alec Baldwin took home the award for best supporting actor in a comedy series for his portrayal of President Trump on Saturday Night Live. "Atlanta" took home the trophy for the former, while "Master Of None" picked up the writing award. He won twice for lead actor in a comedy for his work in "30 Rock".

"Can I just say, bring women to the front of their own stories, and make them the hero of their own stories".


The show has already won two honors Sunday night, with comedian Kate McKinnon winning the best supporting actress in a comedy series earlier in the evening.

Another big victor: "Big Little Lies", which won Best Limited Series, Best Actress (Nicole Kidman), Best Supporting Actor (Alexander Skarsgard), Best Supporting Actress (Laura Dern) and Best Director.

"You are courageous and strong and smart, and you have taught me that you can be kind and fucking badass", she said.

"The Voice" won the reality competition category. "Black Mirror: San Junipero" was named best TV movie.

"This will be the largest audience to witness an Emmys, period, in person and around the world", Spicer said. Spicer walked on the stage, pushing a podium, during Colbert's opening monologue, satirizing the much-publicized debate over the size of the crowd at President Donald Trump's inauguration ceremony.
