We knew her as Elaine Benes on Seinfeld, Christine Campbell on The New Adventures of Old Christine and currently she plays Vice President Selena Meyer on Veep, but now, Julia Louis-Dreyfus has a new TV title: Emmy Record Breaker!
After earning another nomination this morning, July 18, for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, the 52-year-old has surpassed the late Lucille Ball's record of having the most Emmy nods (13) as an actress.
In addition, Louis-Dreyfus also has made some Emmy firsts. She is the only actress who has three wins from three separate shows. She received seven nominations from 1992-98 for Seinfeld, five consecutive noms from 2006-10 for The New Adventures of Old Christine and this past year, an Emmy win for her lead role on HBO's Veep.
Check out two of her acceptance speeches, below:
