Julia Louis-Dreyfus made Emmy history on Sunday night after winning her sixth consecutive Emmy for Best Actress in a Comedy Award for her role in Veep.

If awards were handed out for best worst dancing, Julia Louis-Dreyfus would have an extra Emmy to add to her mantle. During her acceptance speech Dreyfus called her part on the show the "role of a lifetime". She also won Emmys as lead actress on "The New Adventures of Old Christine" and as supporting actress on "Seinfeld". "He's the reason I'm probably up here", Glover said, acknowledging the entertainment industry's and the Emmys' tilt toward the political under President Donald Trump.

"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 joked, in reference to embattled President Donald Trump. This now makes her the actor with the most Emmy wins for a single role in a same series.

Supporting Actor, Comedy Series: Alec Baldwin, "Saturday Night Live". Waithe became the first black woman to ever win in the category.

"Saturday Night Live" was named best variety sketch series, and also brought wins for Kate McKinnon and Melissa McCarthy's turn as former White House press secretary Sean Spicer.

She teared up as she gave her thanks Sunday night.

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

Baltimore will play without the duo for the first time next week when it travels to London to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars . The Browns advanced to the Ravens' 3 early in the fourth quarter, but Kizer was intercepted in the end zone by Lardarius Webb .

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.

It is the most Emmys won by a performer for the same role, overtaking with Candice Bergen, who won five times for playing Murphy Brown.

"Saturday Night Live" triumphed early for a season of skewering President Donald Trump, while the ceremony and host Stephen Colbert did likewise.

More history was made in the best comedy writing award, which was shared by Lena Waithe and Aziz Ansari for penning his Netflix sitcom Master Of None. From 1996-1999 she won lead actress in a comedy for "Mad About You".

"Okay, thanks a million, you guys", she said as she took the stage.

"The Voice" won the reality competition category.
