• Julia Louis-Dreyfus Wins Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress


    LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Julia Louis-Dreyfus said winning the outstanding lead actress in a comedy Emmy for her portrayal of Vice President Selina Meyer on HBO’s “Veep” “means a ton because I’ve lost a lot more than I’ve won.”

    “I’ve lost 10 times,” Louis-Dreyfus said backstage at the Nokia Theatre at Sunday’s 65th annual Primetime Emmy Awards, referring to her acting nominations. She also has two additional nominations as a producer of “Veep.”

    “It is delicious to win.”

    Louis-Dreyfus credited the series’ writers for her fourth Emmy and second in “Veep’s” two seasons.

    “We have the most superlative writers,” said Louis-Dreyfus, who also received an outstanding lead actress in a comedy Emmy in 2006 for her title role on CBS’ “The New Adventures of Old Christine,” and an outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series Emmy in 1996 for her work on NBC’s series “Seinfeld.”

    The field also included four other nominees from last year — Lena Dunham from HBO’s “Girls,” Edie Falco from Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie,” Tina Fey from NBC’s “30 Rock” and Amy Poehler from NBC’s “Parks and Recreation.”

    The other nominee was Laura Dern, who received her first nomination for her portrayal of self-destructive executive Amy Jellico on HBO’s “Enlightened.”
