Emmys: Which Show Will Win the Award for Comedy?

Julia Louis-Dreyfus holds her Emmys for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Comedy Series for "Veep" at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, California September 18, 2017. Unlike her beleaguered on-screen counterpart, Julia Louis-Dreyfus has proven she can always cinch the votes.

Louis-Dreyfus has now won for her role as Selina Meyer for six years in a row.

.

During her acceptance speech, Julia hinted at President Trump's possible future impeachment.

"I adore Cloris Leachman", she said. Her next win would be a full decade later for The New Adventures of Old Christine. Colbert dragged President Donald Trump throughout most of his opening monologue, but this moment literally made jaws drop. "We did have a whole story line about an impeachment but we abandoned that because we were anxious that someone else might get to it first", she quipped.

"The Handmaid's Tale" and political comedy "Veep" won the top prizes at the Emmy awards on Sunday, where "Saturday Night Live" was also a big victor on a night dominated by jokes about U.S. President Donald Trump.

Alec Baldwin predictably won for his impersonation of Donald Trump as Supporting Actor, but the season was largely dominated by McKinnon's multiple portrayals of Hillary Clinton and White House administrators on a largely politically themed season. Waithe became the first black woman to ever win in the category. She teased the upcoming and final season of the show, nodding to a potential plot point.

"I remember the first time we won this award", creator Lorne Michaels said in accepting the show's trophy for best variety sketch series.

In a crowded limited series category, HBO's female-driven murder mystery "Big Little Lies" came out on top, winning for best series, for actors Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern and Alexander Skarsgard, as well as for writing and directing.

This is the sixth consecutive year Louis-Dreyfus has won the award for "Veep".

"You are courageous and strong and smart, and you have taught me that you can be kind and fucking badass", she said.

"This will be the largest audience to witness an Emmys, period, in person and around the world", Spicer said.

Colbert promised the ceremony honoring the best actors and shows on television would be political in the days before Sunday's ceremony broadcasting live from the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles.
