Talented actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus made history at the weekend, by bagging herself her sixth Emmy win, this time landing the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her performance in the hit series Veep. During her acceptance speech for her win, Julia had the audience in fits of laughter, thanks mostly to her funny little dig at presidential candidate Donald Trump.
She said, "I'd like to apologise for the current political climate. I think that Veep has torn down the wall between comedy and politics. Our show started out as a political satire, but now seems like a documentary. So I certainly do promise to rebuild that wall and make Mexico pay for it."
As well as her rather humorous dig at Donald Trump, Julia Louis-Dreyfus also went on to mention a very important person, who has had a huge influence on her life over the years. Unfortunately, Julia's father passed away not too long ago, so she felt it was right to give him a big mention.
She added, "I'd like to dedicate this to my father William Louis-Dreyfus, who passed away on Friday. I'm so glad that he liked Veep, because his opinion was the one that really mattered."
Julia Louis-Dreyfus has now won five Emmy Awards in a row, her sixth in total, and we are sure that this will not be her last. Keep up the good work Julia, here's to many more Emmy Award wins in the future.
