Women win big at Emmys

Grace and Frankie stars Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda

Julia Louis-Dreyfus has once again made Emmy history with her performance as Selina Meyer on the HBO comedy series "Veep" by winning her sixth consecutive Comedy Lead Actress trophy for her role as the former Vice President and President of the United States.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus kisses one of her new Emmy additions to her collection.

During her acceptance speech, Julia hinted at President Trump's possible future impeachment.

The actor's impersonations of Trump have propelled "SNL" to its best season in years, bringing in viewers and also Emmy glory.

Before tonight, Louis-Dreyfus, 56, had won nine Emmys in total, including honors earned for her roles in "Seinfeld" and "The New Adventures of Old Christine". "He's the reason I'm probably up here", Glover said, acknowledging the entertainment industry's and the Emmys' tilt toward the nonstop political under President Donald Trump.

"We did have a whole storyline about an impeachment but we abandoned that because we were anxious someone else might get to it first", Dreyfus said. She stand alone in that category and tied Cloris Leachman for the most acting Emmys ever.

Actor and director Donald Glover took home not one, but two Emmys on Sunday night: one for best actor in a comedy series and another for best director in a comedic Series.

Waithe became the first Black woman to ever win the Emmy for that category.

"The Handmaid's Tale" took home several other awards this year, including best drama series.

"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. While an ensemble show, Saturday Night Live won Outstanding Variety Sketch Series for what could be argued was largely thanks to Kate McKinnon's contribution as the season's MVP and two-time Emmy victor for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.

HBO's political satire sealed its third consecutive best comedy series win.

"You are fearless and strong and smart, and you have taught me that you can be kind and fucking badass", she said.

Writing, Limited Series, Movie or Special: Charlie Brooker, "Black Mirror: San Junipero".

Referencing the false claims he made about Trump's inauguration crown, he appeared at a podium to say: 'This will be the largest audience to witness the Emmys, period - both in person and around the world'.
