Janney, an Emmys favorite, has already won the award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role on Mom, but this year she was upgraded to lead actress. She is also tied to Cloris Leachman for having the most individual Primetime Emmy Awards of any performer.
NU alumnus Stephen Colbert (Communication '86) hosted this year's show in Los Angeles.
Because of this awesome feat last night, Louis-Dreyfus holds the title for earning the most Emmy wins for one role.
She is now holding the record for having the most wins in the lead actress category with seven awards.
Assuming a second season of Atlanta airs before the cutoff next year, that's a strong contender for the Outstanding Comedy Series award at the 2018 Emmys.
Over 15000 people evacuated as bomb threats sweep Moscow
Bomb threats were also issued for Moscow's three railway stations - Kazanskiy, Leningradskiy and Kievskiy. Three more Siberian cities evacuated shopping malls, government offices, schools and hospitals.
First-time Emmy victor Donald Glover also made history, as the first African American director to win for a comedy series. The former White House press secretary made a surprise Emmys appearance, wheeling in his own podium.
"More great roles for women, please", said Kidman as she and her fellow executive producer and co-star Reese Witherspoon accepted the miniseries' award.
Louis-Dreyfus joked that they had planned a storyline about an impeachment "but we abandoned that because we were anxious someone else might get to it first". A third person joked: "Julia Louis Dreyfus is like the Meryl Streep of TV".
Louis-Dreyfus also wasn't afraid to get political at the show, nodding to the eerie way Veep has collided with real-world politics. Louis-Dreyfus has two additional Emmys for her work on Seinfeld and The New Adventures of Old Christine.
