  • Julia Louis-Dreyfus Sets Emmys Record With Sixth Consecutive Win for Veep

The show has been nominated for best comedy series every year since its debut in 2012. The show won six awards in all. But the 33-year-old actor's eventual win felt especially sweet for another reason: the eighth episode of Ansari's semi-autobiographical Netflix series is based on Waithe's own experiences coming out to her family. Women. The shows that took home the most awards were largely female-fronted and female-directed-and a number of television milestones were met or surpassed. Donald Glover's FX show is beloved by critics, and it won awards last night for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series.

Supporting Actress, Drama Series: Ann Dowd, The Handmaid's Tale.

It was an awesome thing to watch so many female-fronted stories be embraced in this way; stories that allow actors like Emmy winners Elizabeth Moss (Outstanding Lead Actress-Drama), Ann Dowd (Outstanding Supporting Actress-Drama), Nicole Kidman (Outstanding Lead Actress-TV Movie/Limited Series), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Outstanding Lead Actress-Comedy), and Laura Dern (Outstanding Supporting Actress-TV Movie/Limited Series) the opportunity to shine.

Another tell-tale sign: Veep took home the casting prize at last week's Creative Arts Emmy Awards, which it's also done in the past two years leading up to its Primetime Emmy victories. Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who plays the central character of Selina Meyer, also broke the record for most Emmys for the same role by winning best actress in a comedy series for the sixth time. We will update this list of Emmy nominees live.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Sets Emmys Record With Sixth Consecutive Win for Veep

Mom's Allison Janney was seen as a strong contender for the award this year, and so it's quite possible that this is who will win in 2018 with Louis-Dreyfuss ineligible.

"I just want to say, Mr. Braugher, it is my supreme honor to follow in your footsteps", Brown said.

Miller gave thanks to Atwood, "who created this world for all of us", then capped the night by saying, "It's been lovely".

Kidman said the production highlighted the "complicated, insidious disease" of domestic abuse.

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