Donald Glover, Julia Louis-Dreyfus take home comedy Emmys

That was Louis-Dreyfus's first outstanding lead actress in a comedy series award (she was nominated but lost the following four years) and, of course, a foreshadowing of future triumphs.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus earned her place in the history books with her sixth straight win for Veep.

The actress played presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during the most recent season, and thanked Clinton during her acceptance speech.

The actor's impersonations of Trump have propelled "SNL" to its best season in years, bringing in viewers and also Emmy glory. Colbert dragged President Donald Trump throughout most of his opening monologue, but this moment literally made jaws drop.

"We did have a whole story line about an impeachment but we abandoned that because we were anxious that someone else might get to it first", she joked, in reference to embattled President Donald Trump. She is now tied with Cloris Leachman for the most wins as a performer.

Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer made a surprise appearance at the Emmy Awards during host Stephen Colbert's monologue.

The win for McKinnon was her second in a row.

The nominees: Veep is up against fellow former victor Modern Family, as well as newcomer Atlanta, and previous nominees black-ish, Master of None, Silicon Valleyand Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

"More great roles for women, please", said Kidman as she and her fellow executive producer and co-star Reese Witherspoon accepted the miniseries' award. He won twice for lead actor in a comedy for his work in "30 Rock".

"Okay, thanks a million, you guys", she said as she took the stage.

The Emmy for outstanding television movie went to Netflix's "Black Mirror: San Junipero", which also won a prize for outstanding writing for a limited series or movie for Charlie Brooker.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus had a lot of competition in the category.

This is the sixth consecutive year Louis-Dreyfus has won the award for "Veep".

Donald Glover also won two Emmys: for best comedy actor and for best directing in a comedy series for Atlanta.
