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

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

She's 56", while another added: "Julia Louis-Dreyfus's insane streak would be infuriating if she didn't 1000% deserve it.

Waithe also made history when she became the first black woman to win an Emmy for comedy writing.

Comedy legends Norman Lear and Carol Burnett presented Emmy award for best comedy series, which went for the third time to "Veep" - a comedy legend in its own right.

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

The Veep star sang about Trump in show host's, Stephen Colbert, opening song at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California. She has earned 22 Emmy nominations throughout her long and storied career and has additionally won a Daytime Emmy and a Best Supporting Actress Academy Award for her role in The Last Picture Show.

She also tied Cloris Leachman for the most acting Emmy wins with eight.

He previously said the idea should be "deeply considered" by the allies, inflaming already-heated debate on the issue. The U.S. dispatched four F-35Bs and two B-1Bs late last month in the wake of the North's ballistic missile launch.

"Veep" is competing with "Atlanta"; "black-ish,"; "Master of None"; "Silicon Valley"; "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" and "Modern Family", which, with five previous wins in the category, is tied with "Frasier" for most top-series awards ever.

Many say the 69 annual Primetime Emmy Awards celebrated both women and diversity.

"We did have a whole storyline about an impeachment but we abandoned that because we were anxious someone else might get to it first", Dreyfus said. Louis-Dreyfus was already the actress with the most wins ever at the Primetime Emmys.

HBO announced earlier this month that season seven of "Veep", set to air in 2018, will be the show's last. During her acceptance speech Dreyfus called her part on the show the "role of a lifetime".

"Veep" was this year's most nominated comedy series with a total of 17 Emmy bids.
