Julia Louis-Dreyfus Tearfully Dedicates Her 5th Consecutive Emmy Win to Her Father

Julia Louis-Dreyfus won her fifth consecutive Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series Emmy for Veep Sunday night, but that doesn’t make this one any less special or any less emotional. The Veep star was visibly shaking as she dedicated her win to her father, William Louis-Dreyfus, who died just a few days ago. “I’d like to dedicate this to my father, William Louis-Dreyfus, who passed away on Friday,” Louis-Dreyfus said. “I’m so glad that he liked Veep, because his opinion was the one that really mattered.”

Oh, and she still got a good dig in against Trump.
