Julia -- a four-time Emmy winner -- has already won two Emmys for her role as Selina Meyer, and this year she's going for a three-peat.
"The miracle of Julia Louis-Dreyfus' performance on Veep is that she takes this character Selena who is so horrible and somehow she makes us love her," said GoldDerby.com's Tom O'Neil. "That's brilliant."
If she does win this year, Julia would tie Candace Bergen as a five-time winner in comedy.
Tony Hale plays Selina's thankless assistant on the show, but he's getting plenty of recognition from Emmy voters. He's going for his second Emmy win after taking home the gold last year.
"I play nervous characters and there's probably a reason for that," Tony told us. "Anxiety comes easily for me."
