Julia Louis-Dreyfus makes Emmy history

Dreyfus, who won her eighth Emmy for outstanding lead actress for her role as Selina Meyers - and her sixth for that part alone - revealed the dropped plot line to laughs during her speech.

While she made history at the 69th Emmy Awards on Sunday, Julia Louis-Dreyfus managed to throw several jabs at President Donald Trump.

Fans of the star took to Twitter to congratulate her win, with one writing: "Julia Louis-Dreyfus just won AGAIN for her role in Veep, winning every year since 2012".

Louis-Dreyfus has won two Emmys for previous roles: one for her role in "Seinfeld" and one for her role in "The New Adventures of Old Christine".

Baldwin started out his acceptance speech night by ribbing Donald Trump, saying the president finally has his Emmy. She claimed that the next (and last) season of "Veep" had planned a "whole storyline about an impeachment" that was ultimately abandoned because "someone else may get there first". Additionally, this win ties her with Cloris Leachman for most total Emmy acting wins (they both now have eight).

The trophies for best supporting comedy acting went to Kate McKinnon, who played Hillary Clinton on "SNL", and Alec Baldwin for his Trump portrayal on the NBC show. The latter award was groundbreaking as he was the first black director to ever win in the category. The series also took awards for best drama writing and directing.

"Big Little Lies" won the limited series award, with Nicole Kidman taking the lead actress award and supporting honours going to her castmates Alexander Skarsgard and Laura Dern.

Waithe also made history when she became the first black woman to win an Emmy for comedy writing.

Another big victor: "Big Little Lies", which won Best Limited Series, Best Actress (Nicole Kidman), Best Supporting Actor (Alexander Skarsgard), Best Supporting Actress (Laura Dern) and Best Director.

HBO's "Big Little Lies" - exploring the dark secrets of three suburban mothers - also had a big night, winning for best limited series and landing a best actress prize in a limited series or movie for first-time Emmy victor Nicole Kidman.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus had a lot of competition in the category. Spicer walked on the stage, pushing a podium, during Colbert's opening monologue, satirizing the much-publicized debate over the size of the crowd at President Donald Trump's inauguration ceremony.
