Guess which actress just broke Emmy records?

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

She'd already made history when she was nominated for her work on the "Thanksgiving" episode from Season 2 of "Master of None" earlier this year, since no other black woman had even received a nod in the group before her.

She also tied Cloris Leachman for the most acting Emmy wins with eight. With three other returnees looking to knock Louis-Dreyfus off her perch, a couple of newcomers including a two-time Oscar victor, and a carpetbagger from the supporting category, this was one to watch.

HBO's "Big Little Lies" - exploring the dark secrets of three suburban mothers - also had a big night, winning for best limited series and landing a best actress prize in a limited series or movie for first-time Emmy victor Nicole Kidman.

"I remember the first time we won this award", creator Lorne Michaels said in accepting the show's trophy for best variety sketch series. Behind the scenes, co-stars Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman served as executive producers on the show, too. "The story has a finality to it that feels end-of-series".

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. To compare, "Game of Thrones", "The People v. O.J. Simpson" and "Sherlock: The Abominable Bride" swept the same categories past year".

"SNL" has won more than 50 Emmys during its run. "Every day when you walk out the door, put on your imaginary cape and go out there and conquer the world because the world would not be as handsome as it is without us in it". "Because the world would not be as handsome as it is if we weren't in it".

This is the 56-year-old actress' 10th Emmy win overall. She added, "This is, and continues to be, the role of a lifetime and an adventure of utter joy".

Donald Glover won the best comedy actor for "Atlanta", which he created and which carries his distinctive voice, while Julia Louis-Dreyfus was honoured for a sixth time for her role as a self-absorbed politician in the comedy "Veep", named best comedy for the third time.

It's a long-running joke that Veep, along with fellow powerhouses Modern Family and The Big Bang Theory, pretty much dominate the comedy categories of all major award shows, and this weekend's Emmy Awards ceremony was no exception.

Alexander Skarsgard poses with his Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series for "Big Little Lies" at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, California September 18, 2017. Only three women - from Morano's category - were nominated among Emmys' six directing categories.
