Julia Louis-Dreyfus 'Numb' After Record-Tying Emmy Win

Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross are both nominated for black-ish

Whether it was Julia Louis-Dreyfus setting a record that's going to be hard to beat or Riz Ahmed becoming the first Asian man to ever win an Emmy, the night was full of progressive moments that made TV fans cheer. "This is and continues to be the role of a lifetime and an adventure of utter utter joy", Louis-Dreyfus said in her acceptance speech.

Are you excited about Julia-Louis Dreyfus' win? Overall, it fills her trophy case with eight acting wins, bolstered by her 1996 Supporting Emmy for Seinfeld. The actress joked that they wanted to do an impeachment storyline, "but we abandoned that because we were anxious someone else might get to it first". 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.

"I remember thinking as I was standing there, alone, that this was it". This would mean it won't be eligible at the 2018 Emmys, as shows that are nominated that year have to have broadcast episodes prior to May 31.

Its writer Bruce Miller was first on stage, followed by Ann Dowd, picking up her first Emmy at age 61 for her portrayal of brutal instructor Aunt Lydia.

We will update this list of Emmy nominees live. In 1984, she won for her performance on the Screen Actors Guild 50th Anniversary Celebration, and four years later she won for a guest role on Promised Land.

John Lithgow, who received the best supporting drama actor for his role as British leader Winston Churchill in "The Crown", took a more diplomatic approach to political commentary.

"The world would not be as handsome as it is if we weren't in it", she said in her acceptance speech, referencing the LGBTQ community.

"We look forward to picking up where we left off".

The win was the sixth Emmy for Lithgow, who won three times as lead actor in a comedy series for "3rd Rock from the Sun".

Donald Glover went home with the Emmys for Best Actor in a Comedy Series and Best Directing of a Comedy for Atlanta, and Sterling K. Brown was honored with the Best Actor in a Drama accolade for This is Us.

NBC's "The Voice" won the third consecutive Emmy for outstanding reality-competition program.

"This will be the largest audience to witness an Emmys, period".
