Julia Louis-Dreyfus Wins 5th Consecutive Comedy Actress Emmy, Gives Epic Speech

Share

I'm so glad that he liked Veep, because his opinion was the one that really mattered. Six of her previous seven were for acting, while another was earned in a producing capacity when "Veep" won Best Comedy Series back in 2015.

The actress then concluded with a touching dedication to her father William who died on Friday, aged 84.

The "Veep" star, who picked up the statuette for her role as Selina Meyer on the HBO comedy, is now the record holder for most consecutive Emmy wins and most wins in the Best Comedy actress category.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus might have lost the White House, but she's Commander-in-Chief of the 68th annual Emmy Awards.

You would have never known that Louis-Dreyfus was grieving when she arrived on the stage, but she left an emotional mark on us all with her speech - one that we won't soon forget.

William had spent his last years doing good, though - donating his multi-million art collection, worth $10 million to $50 million, to New York City nonprofit Harlem Children's Zone. The cause of his death has not yet been made public.

In accepting the award, Louis-Dreyfus said she'd like to apologize for the current state of American politics, joking that her show seems to have morphed from comedy to documentary during the current contentious election season. And, based on comments he made about his daughter in 2014, it was clear that love was reciprocated: "Well, I couldn't tell whether she was going to be a star", the elder Louis Dreyfus said of during an appearance on The Today Show of his very amusing daughter.

The show, Louis-Dreyfus admitted, felt "like a sobering commentary, I would like to rebuild that wall and have Mexico pay for it".

May William Louis-Dreyfus rest in peace.
