Julia Louis-Dreyfus made history at the 2015 Emmys on Sunday.
After scoring the Emmy for Best Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her portrayal of Selina Meyer on the HBO series Veep, the star is now tied with two legendary actresses -- Mary Tyler Moore and Candice Bergen -- for most lead actress Emmy wins. This was her fourth Emmy in that category for Veep. She also won for her roles in Seinfeld in 1996 and The New Adventures of Old Christine in 2006, totaling six.
The news actually came as a shock to the 54-year-old actress. ET’s Nancy O'Dell caught up with the star backstage at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California, informing her about the impressive accomplishment.
"You realize now you have tied Candice Bergen and Mary Tyler Moore for the most wins in the lead actress category?" O’Dell asked the Veep star on her sixth Emmy win.
"Oh I had no idea," Louis-Dreyfus said. "That's cool. Did you say Mary Tyler Moore? Okay, that's sort of, completely mindblowing. Cool."
O'Dell then asked her what all Emmys viewers are probably wondering -- what does it feel like to win an Emmy?
"It was great, I was really nervous I felt -- it was very stiff competition, maybe the stiffest ever I mean, all those girls in this category are just so extraordinary and I don't know, I'm just so overwhelmed, it's great," she told ET. "I cannot believe… I'm surprised that I won again this year to be honest."
Following their interview, O'Dell shared this adorable pic of her and Louis-Dreyfus backstage.
"Gave @officialjld some gummy bears backstage for energy after her Emmy win!," she wrote.
