Julia Louis-Dreyfus Made Emmy History

Louis-Dreyfus' win puts her in the Emmy record books as the person with the most Emmys won by a single performer for one role. Combined with Emmys she's won for "Seinfeld" and "New Adventures of Old Christine", that would tie her with Cloris Leachman as the most-winning Emmy performer ever.

"Saturday Night Live" triumphed early for a season of skewering President Donald Trump, while the ceremony and host Stephen Colbert did likewise. The win gave Louis-Dreyfus the most Emmys for playing the same character - six - surpassing Candice Bergen ("Murphy Brown") and Don Knotts ("The Andy Griffith Show").

Assuming a second season of Atlanta airs before the cutoff next year, that's a strong contender for the Outstanding Comedy Series award at the 2018 Emmys.

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").

"More great roles for women, please", said Kidman as she and her fellow executive producer and co-star Reese Witherspoon accepted the miniseries' award.

After an incredible run, the HBO comedy sensation Veep is heading into its seventh and final season.

Now-legendary Louis-Dreyfus accepted her award toward the end of the evening, and kept her speech to the packed house at Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater short but still meaningful.

This is the 56-year-old actress' 10th Emmy win overall.

"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 called the part "the role of a lifetime".

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