After winning her record-setting sixth Emmy for her portrayal of Veep’s Selina Meyer, Julia Louis-Dreyfus walked onstage to be gracious to her fellow nominees, and deliver a few digs to Trump. “We have a great final season that we’re about to start filming with a lot of surprises that our fabulous writers have cooked up,” Louis-Dreyfus said. “We did have a story line about an impeachment, but we abandoned that because we were worried that someone else might get to it first.” As a twist, perhaps Veep could introduce an outlandish story line with a remarkably humane, articulate, and competent president next season instead.
