Louis Dreufys has been playing Selina since the show premiered in 2012 and has a win for each season of the popular series. "There are so many avenues for storytelling and there are so many more storytellers than there used to be because of it", she said.
Reese Witherspoon poses with the Emmy for Outstanding Limited Series for "Big Little Lies" at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, California September 18, 2017. With the HBO series' seventh and final season coming up, it seems unlikely that the streak will break by the time the 2018 Emmys roll around. The series also took awards for best drama writing and directing.
That category - to be announced at the end of the night - includes five debutants, Westworld, The Handmaid's Tale, NBC's family drama This Is Us and two Netflix shows, Stranger Things and British royaldrama The Crown. Moss thanked the book's author, Margaret Atwood.
With his win for This is Us, Sterling K. Brown is the first black actor to win the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series since Andre Braugher in 1998.
"Well, I think this is a dream, you know". "First I really want to recognize [the] powerful and amusing ladies in our category ... you are superb and I adore you".
Lastly, Hulu made major Emmy history with its six The Handmaid's Tale wins, becoming the first streaming series to win best drama (an honor many long expected to go to Netflix or Amazon), as well as the first streaming show to produce a victor in the Outstanding Actress in a Drama category with Elisabeth Moss.
Donald Glover won the best comedy actor Emmy Award for "Atlanta", which he created and which carries his distinctive voice, while Julia Louis-Dreyfus was honoured Sunday for a sixth time for her role as a self-absorbed politician in the comedy "Veep", named best comedy for the third time. Another big victor for the evening was the HBO comedy Veep.
The cast and crew of the show boarded the stage to accept the award just minutes after Julia Louis-Dreyfus won her sixth consecutive Emmy for her starring role on the HBO series.
Louis-Dreyfus has won every year she's played mercurial president Meyer, and this was her 24th overall Emmy nomination. Speaking about the political comedy, which also won Best Comedy, she joked: "We did have a whole story about an impeachment but we abandoned that because we were anxious someone else might get to it first". The episode's story, inspired by Waithe's own life, followed her character, Denise, discovering her sexuality over the course of her life and finally revealing it to her mother.
