There’s nothing more of a sure thing than Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
On Tuesday, the actress was nominated for her seventh Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy for playing Selina Meyer on Veep while the HBO comedy earned a total of nine awards for its final season.
The latest nominations for Louis-Dreyfus makes her one of the most nominated actresses in Emmy history, with a total of 26 nods -- 19 for acting and seven as a producer on Veep. The actress also has a total of eight acting wins, tying her with Cloris Leachman for the most Emmy wins by a performer. She also holds the record for the most Emmy wins for playing the same role -- six for the first six seasons of Veep.
Meanwhile, Veep dominated the comedy categories, with a nod for Outstanding Comedy Series as well as nominations in the directing and writing categories. On the acting side, Tony Hale and Anna Chlumsky picked up their sixth nominations for their roles as Gary and Amy, respectively, only missing out on the premiere season. Peter MacNicol was also nominated for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series, which is fitting since he was previously nominated in the same category in 2016 but ruled ineligible by the Television Academy.
In total, Veep has picked up 68 nominations and 17 wins over its seven-season run on HBO.
