Veep' wins best comedy Emmys for third year in a row

Posted on

Following its Creative Arts Emmy wins for Outstanding Casting for a Comedy Series and Outstanding Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series (Half-Hour), Veep took home the award for Outstanding Comedy Series at Sunday’s 69th annual gathering.

The cast and crew of the show boarded the stage to accept the award just minutes after Julia Louis-Dreyfus won her sixth consecutive Emmy for her starring role on the HBO series.

Veep earned its sixth nomination in the category this year, with its win marking the third time the show has taken home the trophy in the Outstanding Comedy Series category. Furthermore, the 2017 win is the show’s third consecutive win in the category.

“I was honestly just happy that she won. Thank you. I’m out of a job. I guess we all are. So if anyone hears of anything, looking for movie work, but I’ll do television,” joked showrunner David Mandel in his acceptance speech. Mandel thanked “the other shows that just truly inspire us, Atlanta, Black‑ish, Master of None,” before adding “the Trump White House” among other series.

“This show works because we have sort of a ‘no jerkoffs’ policy on this show,” Mandel added. “And honestly, other than Julia, we really stick to it.”

Veep beat out fellow nominees Silicon Valley, Master of None, Modern Family, Atlanta, Black-ish, and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
