Julia Louis-Dreyfus - 'Veep'
August 27, 2013
After accumulating a multitude of nominations and an award for her supporting role on Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus has recently pulled in even more Emmy nominations as a lead actress.
Louis-Dreyfus was granted her second Emmy for her first season of The New Adventures of Old Christine in 2006 and followed suit last year by receiving her third Emmy for her first season of Veep.
On the show, the funny lady plays Vice President of the United States (often referred to as "veep" on the show) "Selina Meyer," who struggles to stay relevant in the world of politics.
However, she certainly remains relevant in the real-life world of television. After seven nominations for Seinfeld and an additional five for each season of New Adventures, Louis-Dreyfus has now amassed a total of 14 nominations, surpassing the long-held record by TV comedy icon Lucille Ball.
