'Get out!' Julia Louis-Dreyfus wins record 6th consecutive Emmy for 'Veep'

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Makes Emmys History, Hints at Trump's Impeachment During Speech!

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

Stephen Colbert (C87, H11) was the host of the awards show.

It was also a big night for streaming services. Another big victor for the evening was the HBO comedy Veep. Louis-Dreyfus submitted the season six finale, "Groundbreaking", for Emmy consideration this year.

Veep's absence also creates an opportunity for comedic actresses, as Julia Louis-Dreyfuss has taken home the award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series every year since 2012. She's 56", while another added: "Julia Louis-Dreyfus's insane streak would be infuriating if she didn't 1000% deserve it.

Lin Shaye, 73, known as the "scream queen" for her roles in numerous horror films since the 1970s, said she was rooting for Netflix's dark comedy series "Black Mirror", which is up for best TV movie for one of its episodes and for outstanding writing.

Louis-Dreyfus' Emmy, her eighth overall, tied her with Cloris Leachman for most acting victories.

'We did have a whole storyline about impeachment but we abandoned that because we were anxious that someone else might get to it first, ' said Louis-Dreyfus, accepting her trophy. She now holds the record for most Emmys won for the same role in the same series, as well as the most consecutive wins. She thanked her "boyfriend" Brad Hall (C80), and her sons, and called her stint as Meyer "the role of a lifetime... utter joy".

Veep beat out fellow nominees Silicon Valley, Master of None, Modern Family, Atlanta, Black-ish, and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. The Veep actress made sure to recognize these lovely ladies in her acceptance speech.

Veep concluded its sixth season back in June, and it has been renewed for one final season that is set to air in 2018.
