Julia Louis-Dreyfus Wins Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series at the 2013 Emmy Awards

It’s a two-fer for ‘Veep’ star Julia Louis-Dreyfus! Following her win for the same award in 2012, the former ‘Seinfeld’ star has taken home the 2013 Emmy for Outstanding Leading Actress in a Comedy Series, winning for her role as Vice President Selina Meyer of HBO’s ‘Veep.’

This time around, Dreyfus beat out the likes of ‘Girls” Lena Dunham, ‘Nurse Jackie”s Edie Falco, ’30 Rock”s Tina Fey, ‘Parks and Recreation”s Amy Poehler, and Laura Dern of ‘Enlightened.’ The actress had previously won for her ‘Seinfeld’ role, as well as ‘The Adventures of Old Christine,’ with 16 total nominations to her name.

True to character as ‘Veep’ Selina Meyer, Dreyfus had co-star Tony Hale (‘Arrested Development’) accompany her to the stage to hold her bag and remind her who else to thank in her acceptance speech. Hale had himself earlier won his first Emmy for his role as Gary of ‘Veep,’ jockeying for his own thanks in the acceptance speech.

Well, what do you say? Did Dreyfus deserve to be the one who took the gold? Who were you most hoping would win Outstanding Leading Actress in a Comedy Series? Give us your picks!
