Julia Louis-Dreyfus Wins Lead Actress in a Comedy at 2014 Emmys

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Wins Outstanding Lead Actress Comedy Emmys 2014

On Monday night, Veep‘s Julia Louis-Dreyfus returned to a place she knows well — the Emmy winner’s podium — as she picked up this year’s trophy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.

This year’s field included Mike & Molly‘s Melissa McCarthy, Nurse Jackie‘s Edie Falco, Parks and Recreation‘s Amy Poehler and Girls‘ Lena Dunham. Louis-Dreyfus’ win was her fourth time nailing the category — she previously took home the Emmy in 2012 and 2013, and also in 2006 for The New Adventures of Old Christine.

Following an earlier bit in which Louis-Dreyfus pretended not to remember co-presenter Bryan Cranston from his days as a Seinfeld guest star — whose character made out with hers — Louis-Dreyfus paused on her way to the stage for a lingering mock kiss with the Breaking Bad star.

“Yeah,” she said, nodding, as a cutaway shot showed Cranston elaborately wiping his mouth in the crowd. “He was on Seinfeld.”

    In other breaking news, the sky is blue and water is wet.

    If anyone other than the always charming Amy Poehler couldn’t win, I’m glad Julia won, she’s terrific!

    (I keep telling myself every year that Amy’s year will come, but I just don’t think Emmy voters are smart enough…)

    Kudos to Bryan Cranston for kissing JLD and his guest starring role on Seinfeld.

  4. rod says:

    I guess it was Amy´s year after all :(

    Time to wake up and realize there ARE other actresses besides Julia Louis Dreyfus. It’s getting a bit ridiculous.

  6. Babybop says:

    I love her and I think she is hilarious… but I wanted it to go to Amy. Maybe next year.

  7. Ron says:

    I love JLD, but I just don’t understand how Amy got passed over yet again. It’s honestly getting a bit ridiculous at this point.

  8. Eliza says:

    Amy Poehler ♡ She’s my pick, always.

  9. Joey says:

    It really was down to between Amy and Julia, in any event.

  10. Tex Mike says:

    Anything with Julia, Amy or Tina Fey- I’m in !!!!!!

    I love Julia and Amy, but to me Julia gets funnier and funnier every year. Most of the time Amy isn’t even my favorite character on Parks.
